The Process


Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, Nebraska’s vein specialists, will do our best to ensure your time with us is a pleasant experience. Our friendly personnel employ a concierge approach to your care from the moment you call our office. Upon arrival you can expect a warm welcome and a comprehensive evaluation of your vein condition. This will include:

  • • An ultrasound by our Registered Vascular Technician
  • • A clinical evaluation with our board certified vascular surgeon
  • • Personal time to review available treatment options
  • • Treatment planning

Once we arrive at the best method to treat your venous insufficiency, whether a conservative plan of exercise and compression stockings, or a more invasive procedure like endovenous laser ablation, we will work together to complete your plan. Please allow approximately two hours for your first visit, as Dr. Whittle and our team are extremely thorough when assessing your vein condition.

Our premier care and service also extends to include assistance in the communications with your insurance provider. We will contact your carrier to learn of the benefits, deductibles, co-pays, and/or coinsurance available as part of your plan. Our goal is to keep you informed as to what has been approved/covered as medically necessary, and what you will be responsible to pay for your procedure.

Additionally, our comprehensive approach to your health care needs also asks that you return to our office shortly after your procedure for a follow-up ultrasound. This is to ensure that your procedure and treatment plan remain as expected. Please allow one hour for this visit.
