Dos and Don'ts of Podiatry VisitGoing to see the podiatrist for the first time? Here’s Part 2 of the Dos and Don’ts of Your Podiatry Visit!

Do: Let me know what medications you are taking, have been taking, as well as any allergies you may have. It’s important for me to know this as I assess your foot health.

Do: Bring in any orthotics or walking device you may use. I will also look at your shoes for wear patterns in order to assess your gait.

Do: Schedule an appointment if you think you have a problem! It’s your health and feet are often the most overlooked part of the body. Be your own best advocate! Even if you think it’s a small problem, it’s worth checking out, particularly if you have diabetes. In fact, if you have diabetes, you should be seeing your podiatrist regularly.

Do: Ask questions! I’m here to help, inform, and empower you.  Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. If you don’t understand what I’ve told you, ask and I’m glad to explain it further. Remember, take care of your feet and they will take care of you!

Don’t: Be afraid to come see me! If you think you have a problem, get rid of the fear and anxiety and take action. You and your feet are worth it!
