Dr. Albert Named Top Doctor in Vascular Surgery 2017 by Colorado Springs Style Magazine

September 7, 2017

The September/October 2017 issue of Colorado Springs Style magazine features its annual list of Top Docs, and Dr. Albert has been named among the region’s best. Here is the complete list of Colorado Springs doctors who received the recognition. Colorado Springs Style and El Paso County Medical Society asked local doctors, in a confidential peer-to-peer survey, who they would recommend should a friend or family member require medical care. “For the 6th year in a row, I am truly humbled to receive this recognition from my physician peers as one of Southern Colorado’s Top Doctors. I enjoy providing trusted evaluations and treatments for patients with serious and cosmetic varicose and spider vein problems.” With my sincerest thanks, Dr. Albert.

There are several complications associated with having diabetes with two in particular as it relates to vein disease: vascular complications and leg ulcerations.  You may have read that diabetes leads to vascular disease; however, vascular disease encompasses both the arterial and venous components.  When vascular complications arise from diabetes, they are arterial complications and DO NOT cause varicose veins.  These arterial complications can affect the legs, kidneys, and eyes. Foot and ankle ulcers are frequently associated with diabetes; however, these non-healing wounds could be caused from venous disease (varicose veins).  Many people with non-healing wounds are frequently tested for diabetes multiple times when they really should be seeing a vein specialist like Dr. Albert.  It’s been reported that venous stasis ulcerations cause up to 70% of all non-healing wounds.  If you have a non-healing wound, Albert Vein Institute may be able to help you. Please call 888-550-VEIN (8346) to schedule your initial consultation.

Unlike coronary artery or carotid artery disease, superficial venous insufficiency is not a silent killer. Patients without symptoms do not need to be screened for abnormal valves in their superficial veins as nothing harmful is going to occur urgently. You may have seen appeals from “Chain Vein” or other vein clinic physicians to come to their center for “vein screening” and identify patients who “do not know they have vein disease.” Patients with significant medically necessary vein disease have symptoms of aching, burning, itching, heaviness, ankle swelling, leg fatigue in association with varicose veins and large numbers of spider veins. This is why insurance providers do not authorize procedures for venous insufficiency in the absence of symptoms. Venous ultrasound is not indicated in patients without symptoms and patients should be seen by a qualified medical provider to determine if an ultrasound examination is appropriate (see blog about FREE VEIN SCREENING).

For patients looking for vein care in Colorado today, for the record, there is no affiliation between Dr. Albert, Albert Vein Institute (AVI), and any vein practice that claims to be “Colorado’s largest network of vein clinics.”  Dr. Albert has practiced as COLORADO’S VEIN SPECIALIST for 11 years and counting after a prestigious career as a Cardiovascular Surgeon.  At AVI our focus is on quality of our vein care not quantity of vein clinic locations.  Dr. Albert is always your physician from your initial consultation throughout the duration of your care at either location in Denver and Colorado Springs.  AVI is proud of our accomplishment as Colorado’s only vein practice to receive the prominent IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) Accreditation for both Vein Center and Vascular Testing.
