A physician should perform the procedure, but they do not have to be board certified in phlebology.

Any physician can perform sclerotherapy and in some states nurses or PA'S can so this. However, a vein specialist should be the most experienced in this procedure.

It varies from state to state.
The important issue is the qualifications and experience of the person who is treating you.
My advice is always to see a Board Certified Vascular Surgeon who specializes in venous disease, to treat a vascular problem.
