Preparing for your Podiatry Appointment

Medical SymbolSo you need to see a podiatrist, huh? Whether it’s just for a healthy check-up, or you are having a painful problem, there are things that you can do to prepare for your podiatry appointment. Follow this guideline and it will allow your visit to go smoothly, and more importantly, make you feel comfortable and at ease.

Prior to your visit, prepare any personal information to fill out your forms: phone and social security numbers, date of birth, and insurance. That way, the paperwork and payment plan is ready to go before you even get there!

It’s also a good idea to do a little homework before you head to the appointment. Go to our website, read about services available to you, gather information about a condition that may be of concern, and see if we have any online forms you can fill out ahead of time to help expedite the new patient process.

On the day of the visit, bring along a list of questions you may have, as well as current medications, any medical records on hand, a photo I.D., and shoes that you wear often. Also, be prepared to discuss your symptoms and don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s important that you feel assured and comfortable with the service you are about to receive.

At Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists, we take the time to get to know you so that we can provide the individualized care to fit your needs. If you’re ready to see a podiatrist, call (512) 328-8900 to make an appointment with Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS or Dr. Shine John DPM, FACFAS. Our Austin, TX, office welcomes you!
