5 out of 5 Stars!!! Laser Vein Center of Alaska

I really appreciated the thoroughness and empathy that Dr. Ive's and his team provided me. Unfortunately, for the last 7 years, I have been struggling with medical challenges with little to no relief and a blurred way forward when it comes to my medical care. Dr. Ive's team sat down with me and took time to understand me and my medical history, while providing a way forward but also being realistic. From his office, I was referred to Diagnostic Health of Anchorage for additional testing (CT Scan with Contrast). This is a study that I was not afforded in the past while in the care of military providers. For the reason that they are thinking outside the box to better understand my condition means the world to me. I highly recommend Dr. Ives and his team if you are looking for a competent, realistic, and empathetic medical team for your medical needs. Thank you.

What Are Varicose Veins

A varicose vein is a broken vein that has refluxing or stagnant contents. Normal veins return blood to the heart after arteries have carried it away. Veins use valves to direct their blood flow. If valves fail then blood accumulates under pressure, engorging and distorting these blood vessels.

Varicose veins can appear as either bulging, often twisted and rope-like, or small and thread-like. Although these veins will sometimes only be of cosmetic concern, they often cause symptoms that can be severe enough that they can affect someone's ability to get through their day.
