What to expect on your first visit
In your initial consultation your podiatrist will take a comprehensive subjective history regarding your presenting issue and complete relevant objective assessments (muscle testing, gait analysis etc) to formulate a diagnosis and management plan for you. If we believe further investigations such as X-ray, Ultrasounds, CTs, MRIs etc. are required to make an accurate diagnosis we will organize these referrals for you. If you are coming in to receive general foot care (corns/calluses/nails/warts) your podiatrist will be able to treat as many of your concerns in your initial visit as time allows, focusing on your main concern. Your podiatrist will then discuss future appointments and a management plan that is best suited to your individual requirements.
