What is podiatry?
Podiatry is a healthcare profession specialising in the assessment, treatment and management of lower limb conditions. A typical podiatry consult involves a discussion of your lower limb issue to properly understand the concern. Next your podiatrist will perform an assessment to accurately diagnose the cause of your problem and design a treatment best suited for you. This treatment will be implemented and reviewed to ensure resolution of your foot or lower limb issues.
Do I need a Doctor’s referral?
You do not need a doctor’s referral unless you are on Workcover, a DVA referral or you are referred on a Medicare Care Plan.
