Everyone was nice. I was in excruciating pain the day before my appointment. I contacted them & I was given the appointment for the next day. I was greeted warmly by the ladies at the front desk. 1 was training the other, she was very patient with her. The assistant was extremely nice and had a nice sense of humor. He informed beforehand of what he was going to do. Dr. Derby was very nice also explaining in detail of what my options are for treatment starting w/least invasiveness other than surgery immediately. I truly appreciate it.
I left out with a boot on; not my driving foot.
Thank God!

What is the Role of a Podiatrist in Foot Care?

A podiatrist is a healthcare professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. They are equipped to handle everything from minor foot complaints to complex surgeries and serious conditions like diabetes.

What Kind of Foot Problems Can a Podiatrist Treat?

Podiatrists are trained to treat a wide range of foot and ankle issues. These include common problems like bunions, heel pain, and nail disorders, as well as more serious conditions such as fractures, arthritis, and foot complications related to diabetes.

Why is Podiatry Important?

Podiatry plays a crucial role in maintaining overall foot health. Regular visits to a podiatrist can help prevent foot and ankle problems, manage existing conditions, and improve mobility and quality of life, especially for individuals with chronic health issues like diabetes.

How Can a Podiatrist Help Me?

A podiatrist can provide comprehensive care for your feet, from diagnosing and treating foot and ankle conditions to providing personalized advice on footwear and foot care. They can also perform surgeries, prescribe medications, and provide orthotics or other aids for foot problems.

What is the Most Common Problem Treated by a Podiatrist?

While podiatrists treat a wide range of conditions, some of the most common include heel pain (often caused by plantar fasciitis), bunions, and nail disorders such as ingrown toenails. They also frequently treat foot issues related to chronic conditions like diabetes.

How Do Podiatrists and Orthopedic Surgeons Differ in Treating Foot Problems?

While both podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons can treat foot and ankle problems, their training and approach can differ. Podiatrists focus exclusively on the foot and ankle and may have more specialized knowledge in this area. Orthopedic surgeons, on the other hand, are trained to treat the entire musculoskeletal system, including the foot and ankle, and may handle more complex surgical cases. The choice between the two often depends on the specific condition and the patient's needs.
