Do I need a referral to see a Podiatrist?

A referral is not required to see a Podiatrist most of the time. If you however are eligible for an EPC/Medicare team care arrangement than you will require a referral from your GP.

Why should I see a podiatrist first?

Podiatrists specialise in assessing biomechanics stemming from the lower leg and foot.
If you have pain in your feet ankles or lower leg and you believe your current symptoms maybe related to the alignment or structure of your feet than a Podiatrist should be your first port of call.

What do I need to bring on my first appointment?

Bring a pair of shorts, your runners, and most commonly worn shoes. Also for any patients on different medications please bring a list of those. Finally please bring any referrals, letters or scans that may be relevant to why you require an appointment.

Is it okay to see a podiatrist and another health professional at the same time?

Yes, it is important though that both practitioners are aware so they can plan the best management strategy for you.>
