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).
