first visit: WHAT TO EXPECT
You may call and make your own appointment or you may be referred by another health care provider. Our staff will then mail you a packet of information and a form to fill out and bring with you when you come for your appointment.
Once you arrive, you will check in with one of our receptionists, Lori Barfield or Tyler Armstrong, who will escort you into our media room to watch a video of Dr. Manning and Dr. Adams discussing venous disease.
You will next see Judy Goodson, RVT for an ultrasound exam of your legs. The ultrasound exam identifies any underlying source of venous disease. The information obtained from the ultrasound exam is critical to the design of your specific treatment plan.
You will then be taken into our photography room where our clinical coordinator, Dawn Holsenback, will photograph your legs. Dawn will then escort you to one of our exam rooms where you will meet with either Dr. Manning or Dr. Adams. Your medical history will be reviewed, your legs will be carefully examined, the ultrasound exam will be discussed in detail, and a customized treatment plan will be formulated specifically for you.
Dawn will then escort you down to see one of our insurance specialists, Scarlette Manning or Wanda Smith, who will discuss the terms of your insurance coverage and schedule your procedure.
When you leave Mississippi Vein, we want you to be educated regarding your specific venous problem. We want you to understand your treatment plan and to be fully informed regarding insurance coverage and any out of pocket costs. At Mississippi Vein, we want the overall treatment experience to be first class in every respect.
