Daniel J. Mountcastle, MD, FAAEM is well known as a pioneer within the field of Varicose Veins and Spider Veins. His virtually pain-free treatments have effectively changed the expectations for Vein Treatment across the board.
There are many causes for Spider Veins and Varicose Veins. Genetics, hormones of pregnancy, prolonged standing, and injuries are only a few of these causes. When you visit Dr. Mountcastle, not only will he treat you for your vein disorder, but he’ll also help you to realize the initial cause of your disorder, which will help you to keep your legs healthy in the future. 
Our simple yet focused disorder investigation consists of you standing in place for a period of 60 minutes while a certified and experienced ultrasonographer evaluates the veins in your legs with the most up-to-date equipment.
After ensuring your diagnosis is correct, we then move on to selecting the appropriate state-of-the-art treatment for your vein disorder. Our less-invasive treatments will eliminate your downtime and discomfort while maximizing effectiveness. Listed below are several of our less-invasive treatments along with a short description:
Laser (EVLT) - Closure of veins with malfunctioning valves using laser treatment.

"I think of all the years that I have worn long skirts or pants; of going to the beach and not taking my sarong off to hide my legs. I have envied women wearing short skirts and not wearing black stockings to hide their legs as I often did. And I have been doing all of the above, since I was 23 years old. Your staff immediately made me feels welcome. Dr. Mountcastle gave me an ultra sound exam on my legs, explained what procedures would be done, and made me feel very much at ease. The following procedures over the past few months have proved so successful, that my family and friends are amazed! My husband and children had never seen me without veins and are thrilled to see me wearing shorts and dresses that I would never have worn before. I will never be able to thank you enough, for what you’ve done for me. I promise to “spread the Gospel” and become a missionary for Mountcastle Vein Specialists. Maybe I can help other people to realize their dream as well, of VEIN – FREE LEGS!!!! - Mary, Largo, FL
