Your First Podiatry Appointment
Ever get images in your head like this when you thought you’d need to see someone to fix a foot problem?
For some, it can feel a little awkward coming to see any medical professional, particularly if you’ve got a problem that’s considered a little embarrasing!
Trust us – we’ve seen it before!! Our superstar Podiatry team will talk to you about:
- what brought you to see us
- what’s going on to cause the problem
- solutions to getting it better!
We take care of YOU!
Our personal VALUES as a team mean that we want what’s best for you, because that’s what’s best for US 🙂
What to bring to your Podiatry Appointment
Please bring anything to your appointment that you feel may assist with your diagnosis and assessment. This may include:
- lists of medication, which we require for our records
- Footwear that you use regularly
- Test results or imaging reports
- Referral letter if appropriate
We recommend that you wear loose, comfortable clothing. This is particularly important if attending for a Biomechanics assessment.
A couple of days before your appointment you will receive a text message or email reminder about your appointment. Please feel free to contact us for confirmation if you have not received a reminder.
Please note that children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Do I need a referral?
No, you do not need a referral to see a Podiatrist.
However, if you are using private medical insurance, then you will most likely need a referral from your GP as a minimum.
Our Cancellation Policy
We require a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel an appointment. If you fail to attend or cancel with less than the required time then we will charge you the full appointment fee. By making an appointment with Eclipse Foot Clinic Ltd we take this as your consent to abide by these rules.
