Accreditation by the IAC means that Circulatory Centers of West Virginia has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review.
IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of Vascular Testing. When schedule for a Vascular Testing procedure, patients are encouraged to inquire as to the accreditation status of the facility where their examination will be performed and can learn more by visiting http://www.intersocietal.org/vascular/main/patients.htm.
IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to Vascular Testing, which include physicians, technologists and sonographers. Vascular Testing accreditation is required in some states and regions by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and by some private insurers. However, patients should remain vigilant in making sure that their Vascular Testing procedures are performed within accredited facilities, because for many facilities it remains a voluntary process.
ABOUT Circulatory Centers
Circulatory Centers was founded in 1979 by William G. Katz, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified vascular surgeon, leading the way for many of the advances in varicose vein treatment. Dr. Katz was one of the pioneers in the use of sclerotherapy, the original gold-standard vein treatment. The physicians at Circulatory Centers have further refined and improved upon these procedures so that today, our treatments eliminate both large and small varicose veins. Circulatory Centers is highly regarded as one of the country’s leading medical providers for the treatment of venous disease with over 26 offices in 6 states. Now Circulatory Centers is under the medical direction of Louis M. Certo, M.D., F.A.C.S. who has been a staff surgeon for Circulatory Centers since 1997 where he began his career in Phlebology under the direction of Dr. Katz.
