What to expect on your first consultation.


Please aim to arrive 10-15 minutes before your appointment time to allow time to find the clinic and to register.

For every patient a medical history will be taken including a family history. Please bring a list of all current medication.

Clinical treatment for corns, callus and nails is usually painless and takes 30-45 minutes. It is wise to bring along some examples of regular footwear so the podiatrist can assess the cause of the problem as well as treating the presenting symptoms.

Biomechanical assessment for sports injuries, children’s walking assessments, bunions, flat feet, etc. requires a 45 minute appointment. Preferably come dressed in shorts or loose trousers that can be rolled up to expose the knees during the gait assessment. The podiatrist will assess the feet during standing and walking as well as assessing the joints and muscles when the patient is lying prone. Examples of regular footwear for sport and daily wear are again useful to the podiatrist.
