What to expect

---
During your appointment the Podiatrist will ask you questions on the reason for your visit, they will then take a full medical history as this will aid in the most effective treatment for your pathology.

It would be helpful if you are on any medication to bring a list of this with you to share with the Podiatrist.

Treatment may include filing of the skin or nails, reduction of callus & corns with a scalpel and the use of a Doppler or monofilament to assess your circulation and sensation in the feet.

If you are attending for foot pain, bony or muscular it may be necessary for the Podiatrist to evaluate your gait and stance, loose fitting trousers that can be pulled up to the knee would be beneficial.
