FAQ

Q: Do podiatrists just cut toenails?

A: Podiatrists are university trained lower limb specialists. We can treat a wide range of lower limb issues including bone, muscular and skin related issues. If you have a problem related to your legs or feet, contact us for help!

Q: Do I need a referral to come and see a podiatrist?

A: Absolutely not! A referral from your GP is only required if:

- You are to be seen under a Chronic Disease Management (CDM) or Team Care Arrangement (TCA) plan.

- You are a service veteran holding a Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) card.

- You have been referred under Work Cover or other third party insurance.

Q: Do you bulk bill?

A: If you have a valid referral from your General Practitioner as part of a Team Care Arrangement, this will be bulk billed directly to Medicare. 

Q: Do you accept private health insurance?

A: With HICAPS on site, we can process your private health fund claim on the spot, provided you have podiatry cover on your health insurance.

Q: What should I bring to my appointment?

A: Bring along any referrals, X-rays or scans relevant to your condition and your most commonly worn footwear (multiple pairs if necessary).
