Welcome and thanks for visiting our web site about the treatments that are available for a wide range of vein disorders, including varicose veins and spider veins. We know that you have many choices for getting your veins treated, whether your concerns are about about facial veins, leg veins, veins on your hands and feet, among other locations that may need treating.
In the article below we explain why we are different and why we think you will have a pleasant and more than satisfactory experience with the consultations and treatments that are provided by Dr. Hoyle's medical practice. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose vein disorders, in conjunction with the Advanced Vein Center of Orange, California.
Diagnostic Ultrasound is now considered the standard of care for evaluating vein disorders in the lower legs. Treatment failures for spiders and bulging veins are often due to overlooking problems with deeper veins in the legs. Only ultrasound can see these problems. If the test is ordered and performed at a hospital or outpatient diagnostic center, it is often done by a technologist who has had minimal or no training in evaluating the superficial veins.
We perform diagnostic ultrasound exams in our office using a state of the art ultrasound equipment dedicated explicitly to vein evaluations. We do not refer our patients to an outside imaging center or hospital for ultrasound evaluation. We have found too often that outside sonographers are not properly trained in evaluating the superficial veins. Dr. Hoyle personally performs or supervises all ultrasound evaluations.
Dr. Hoyle has traveled both nationally and abroad to several important centers to acquire the exceptional skill needed for the treatment of vein disorders. Dr. Hoyle has practiced and studied with some of the leaders in the laser vein surgery field in advanced centers of La Jolla, Phoenix and Toronto. In 2004, Dr. Hoyle traveled to Lausanne to visit Dr. Albert Ramelet who is one of the world's recognized pioneers in the modern treatment of varicose veins. Dr. Ramelet has written a major reference text book on the treatment of varicose veins and designed some of surgical instruments used today.
Dr. Hoyle has practiced medicine in Orange County for over 25 years. He was the first physician in Orange County to perform an endovenous laser ablation. He is one of a few doctors in Southern California doing ambulatory micro-phlebectomy. In 2007 Dr. Hoyle was one of a few doctors from around the country who participated in a seminar held in Houston, which was focused on the laser treatment of perforator veins and subsequently was one of first doctors in Orange County to use a laser to treat incompetent perforator vein Dr Hoyle is a member of the American College of Phlebology and is board certified by the American Board of Phlebology. He is also a member of ARDMS with the credential RPVI® – Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation.

In many cases, a carefully coordinated treatment program will be necessary to restore vein health, proper circulation and the desired esthetic results.
