Come along with us while we explain about Delta Vein Care! Take the time to view this brief video so you can become familiar with the inside of the surgical suite. We will be updating this area as new information comes in. Thanks for your time, from Dr. Larry Barr and staff.
Dr. Barr began practice of general, vascular and thoracic surgery in Monroe in 1979. He was instrumental in the development of endoscopic general surgery in the area, performing the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy, first laparoscopic hernia repair, and first laparoscopic nissen fundoplication in Monroe. Over the past several years Dr. Barr has focused on new developments in the treatment of venous disease. He currently has the only totally office-based practice focusing on vein care in this area. Dr. Barr is a registered vascular technologist and is a Diplomate of the American College of Phlebology. Options for venous treatment include compression therapy, sclerotherapy, phlebectomy, or endovenous ablation. You may require one or several of these modalities to resolve your particular problem, and all are provided in the office setting with little or no down time.
So I am ready to come in and see Dr. Larry Barr at Delta Vein Care. What is my next step?
We understand that sometimes it is harder to dial the phone and ask for an appointment than actually going through the procedure so we try to make it as easy as possible. Call Delta Vein Care clinic at 318-812-VEIN and talk to his friendly staff and make an appointment.
We will be happy to answer your questions, such as:
All procedures are performed in the office setting. Call us for an appointment.
We are dedicated to providing the best possible care for you, and we want you to completely understand our office financial policies.
Please be aware that private health insurance and medicare supplement precertification (when applicable) is the patient’s responsibility. We will assist you with this if needed.
All office charges are due at the time of service unless prior arrangements have been made. A deposit is required prior to any surgical procedure, if your insurance does not pay 100% of billed charges. We accept Visa/Mastercard. We will file your claim with your insurance company. By law your insurance company has 45 days to process and pay the claim.
We have contracts with many insurance companies to accept assignment of benefits. We will bill them and you will be responsible for your co-pay when applicable. If you are insured by a plan that we are not under contract with we will file the claim. in some cases the payment will be sent to you, therefore you would be responsible for the full amount due.
not all insurance plans cover all services. In the event your insurance plan determines a service to be “not covered”, you will be responsible for the complete charge. Payment is due upon receipt of a statement from our office.
We will bill your insurance company for all services provided in the hospital. You are responsible for any balance due.
I have read and understand the practice’s financial policy and agree to be bound by its terms. I also understand and agree that such terms may be amended by the practice from time to time.
“I had a deep vein in my leg that was embarrassing but I lived with it until it became a pain problem. My vein was so bad, I know I was a challenge, but Dr. Barr and his staff have been great.” –Linda Robinson
“My varicose veins were so big and painful that I had to stop playing tennis. Since the surgery, my legs feel and look better every day. And I’m playing tennis again.” – Brenda Wilson
“I first started noticing some pain about a year before my surgery and the pain got progressively worse. One of my coworkers recommended Dr. Barr. I had both my legs worked on at the same time, my right leg is wonderful and my left leg is feeling better by the day. I had the procedure at his office. It was easier than going to a big facility. –Peggy Duchesne
“After my vein surgery, I am working out again, getting into shape. I like to ride a stationary bike and had to give that up before because my legs would swell. Pushing the pedals on a school bus did take a toll on my legs, but now I can drive my bus pain free.” –Andre Howell
“I am tickled to death about the final result. Now I am having some cosmetic spider veins treated, just so now, I can have Marilyn Monroe legs. My ankles were blue and I was always worried about how they looked. Now I can be proud of my legs and they don’t hurt.” –Linda Robertson
“I knew I had to do something, I was in pain. The results of my surgery are nothing short of a miracle. Ladies don’t put it off!” –Geraldine Stanley
