What is a podiatrist?
A Podiatrist is a university trained Allied Health professional who specialises in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of foot and lower limb disorders. Please see the services section of the website for an overview of the services I provide.
Do you need a referral to see a podiatrist?
In most cases, a referral is not required from a GP prior to making an appointment. However, those who are entitled to Medicare plans or are DVA members will need to see their GP prior to coming in.
What should I bring to my appointment?
It is always helpful to bring a selection of your most commonly worn shoes for different activities and any previous orthotics you may have. Comfortable clothing that can be easily rolled up over the knees is also beneficial in case a biomechanical assessment is necessary. Please bring along any referral letters and/or relevant radiology imaging (eg X-rays, ultrasounds) as well if you have any.
Do you accept private health funds?
Yes. We have a HICAPS facility onsite to claim instantly. I am able to provide you with item code numbers if you wish to check rebate amounts from your private health provider.
