Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Good luck on getting a follow-up appointment. You are told that the Dr.'s schedule is not know. What kind of an office does not have regular times allotted for patient visits. I have worked in several surgeon's offices and we knew which days the Physicians performed surgeries and which days they saw patients. We did not feel comfortable in this office and if my mother had not been referred here and needed surgery ASAP we would have gone to someone else.
Apparently Any patient who is suspected" to have "cancer",had surgery, and was told to call beck the following mid-week for results and has since waited 11 days is poor communication on the Surgeons part. When the patient called to office, as instructed, for results, she was told by Nurse on Tues. results were not back. On wednesday the Nurse said, "I am looking at it, but we sent it to Greenville and don't call us back we will call you when we get the results." The Doctor did not even give the patient a common courtesy call to offer anything,about the results they had on hand. She could have said, "it looks suspecious so we are sending it to another facility for an opinion", she could have said "yes we have it but the I would prefer to review the results at your follow up appt.". Most Surgeons I have worked with or have had experience with, will call patient themselves to tell the results over the phone before the f/u date, so they won't keep worrying about the results. If that is the case, then don't disregard the patient's feelings/concerns. The Doctor needs to be more forth-coming with their patients, about their result, when indeed they had the results on wednesday from the surgical facility. I know this because, I have seen a copy from the surgical center results received on Wednesday. I am very dissappointed about this part of this Surgeon's practice. This is the reason for low scores in f/u with patient and accuracy in diagnosis. In general the Surgeon is polite, answered questions we had in office at first appt.. However, the follow up with patients after and about results, is rated very poor in my opinion. Working in the medical field, I consider this disrepectful and inappropriate for patients. Being "put off", or told they "did not have results" or "its been sent to greenville dont't call us we will call you" 11 days later, with no further communication with the patient is unacceptable in any practice. I realize some Doctors prefer to wait until f/u to discuss results and plan of treatment in person, but to have no contact at all from the Surgeon after the surgery about the results when cancer is suspected is just plain unacceptable and disrespectful to the patient.
