Your first appointment will include a medical history and physical exam of your legs and feet. If you have Diabetes, this will include a complete diabetic foot assessment. Upon examination, the Podiatrist will treat your issues/concerns (ie. cutting your nails, removing callus...and much more!).
We will try out best to use our expertise to assure your treatment is not painful. It is not uncommon for our patients to come in with pain and leave stating they feel as though they have new feet. By using different styles of treatment and methods we will help to make sure you are always comfortable.
Your initial visit will be 30-45 minutes. This will allow the appropriate amount of time to complete your assessment and treatment.
Regular returning appointments are 15-30 minutes.
