How To Find The Best Podiatrist

We are happy to welcome new patients to our clinic. We have found that knowing what to expect and how best to prepare for your first appointment is a huge help. To help you get ready for your first appointment, we have put together some helpful tips and tricks.

It will prevent sunburns from occurring by applying sunscreen with high levels of SPF during the summer. You can reduce your risk for skin cancer by using sunscreen. You should immediately contact us if you notice any unusual sensations on your feet. We will assess the situation, identify what is wrong, then help you to solve it.

While the first nine tips may help to lower your risk, you should also keep the tenth tip handy in case of an emergency. You can still get a foot or ankle problem even with the best prevention. However, it’s best to seek treatment as soon as you notice any symptoms. If you notice that you have a problem, we will be happy to assist you.

The first visit will be where the podiatrist asks you questions about your symptoms. Make sure to take down as much information about your symptoms as possible so you can tell the podiatrist anything that is important. It may be necessary to take a few notes about your symptoms.

It is best to arrive 5-10 minutes early for any paperwork. This paperwork will ask you about any allergies, medical conditions, or medications. You can avoid missing important information by having a current list.

Your overall health may not seem to be relevant to your feet’ health at first glance. However, this is far from the truth. Diabetes can lead to foot complications like infection, delayed healing, nerve damage and delay in healing. Some medications can cause side effects like leg pain or ingrown nails. Because certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment plan and diagnosis, it is important that you share this information with your podiatrist. Keep them informed of any changes in your health history.

We care about your preferences, comments, feedback, and experience! Never be afraid to ask any questions you may have or to give us honest feedback about any aspect. Asking questions allows us the opportunity to talk about what is most important to you regarding your condition and treatment options. This applies even if you have already done your research (don’t feel embarrassed if this is the case). Talk to your podiatrist about your thoughts. They can talk them through during an appointment and compare your thoughts with what they discover during their assessment. When it comes to your overall health, there are no silly questions. Get out there and speak up!

Try to wear clothing that you are comfortable in. This will allow the Podiatristst to evaluate your feet as far as your knees. You will be more comfortable in pants that you can roll up if you aren’t able to wear shorts. You prefer skirts or dresses? You can also wear bike pants underneath, just in case your podiatrist needs more information about your leg range.
