Health Tip: Prepare for Your First Podiatrist Visit
-- Before you visit a podiatrist for the first time, it's helpful to prepare a list of helpful information, questions and any special equipment.
The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests including:
- A list of any symptoms, all medications and any previous surgeries.
- Important medical records and laboratory tests.
- A list of any special needs.
- If your problem involves walking or exercise, bring your walking/exercise shoes with you to the appointment.
