Once you visit for your first appointment, we take a thorough look at your treatment and medical history records as well as your health status. Health complications generally cause most of the foot problems, and hence it is advisable that as you visit you carry a list of your medications.
In the case that the problems you are experiencing will need a prescription for an insole or orthotic, it would be good if we see you standing or walking. Also, in that case, it is preferable that you put on a pair of shorts or a skirt and if you are experiencing a problem with a specific type of shoes then bringing them along would also be very useful.
During your first appointment, along with giving treatment t your problems, we also offer a few guidelines and advice. Expect your first appointment to take a time span of about 30 minutes in which case the podiatrist may help that you visit again with a specified duration of time.
In the case that you will not be able to show up for your appointment, then we require 24-hour notice before the time the meeting was scheduled for. There is a cancellation list that we operate on, and given the opportunity, we can always fill these appointments. Hence, for those appointments missed without prior notice they are typically charged.
Also another reminder; as you visit for your foot health assessment to be accurately done, it's essential that you remove any toe rings and nail varnish. First, you will be assessed by our Podiatrists who will then refer you to our Podiatry Assistant in the case that you will need routine nail care.
