SEE THE PODIATRIST FIRST
I see so many patients every day that tell me they have been to everyone in town except the Podiatrist to treat their foot pain. Finally they arrive at our office and get the care they needed in the first place. There are a lot of new Practioners out there telling you they treat foot problems, but the bottom line is that Podiatrists are the ones that are treating feet everyday all day long. Would you go to your family doctor if you had a tooth ache? No, you would go to the Dentist…the person that treats teeth. Podiatrists treat feet, that’s what we do and have 7 years of training after college to do just that and do it well. So, if your feet hurt or your friend’s feet hurt, tell them to see a Podiatrist FIRST, not the Dentist. Thanks for listening to my rant, but it saves people time and a lot of money to see us first.
