FIRST TIME APPOINTMENT:
Initial consultation (duration around 45 minutes 30mins treatment & 15mins processing time) in this time we check both feet for sensation and blood circulation. We take into account any medications and medical history. If treatment is possible then its given during this consultation, such as nail cutting, hard skin, corns, callus, fungal nail etc. However if you present with various conditions that cannot all be treated in a first visit then follow ups might be suggested at cost. An example would be excessive hard skin, excessive nail thickness or the presentation of an unknown Verruca. If you present with a Verruca as a first time patient then we treat the Verruca or general treatment but not both . For information on Verruca treatment see below.
MSK ASSESSMENT ( Gait Analysis )
£70 payment in advance. If Orthotics are required the price will be discussed during assessment. The cost of the resulting Orthotics is extra to the £70 assessment. The assessment can last around an hour. It is best to book first either by phone payment or walk in. On the day of the appointment please bring the various shoes you wear (regular day to day footwear) and any current Orthotics as this will help the Podiatrist assess. The £70 advanced payment is the assessment cost and not refundable should the conclusion be that Orthotics are not be required. Orthotics costs can be confirmed in this assessment and if accepted then a deposit will be required before any provision is made (none refundable). We require at least 48 hours notice for cancellation or rebooking.
On a first visit when presenting Verrucas we will begin treatment in that visit. Warts on hands or both will be treated. Some treatments options for this virus may not be appropriate in your case. Medical conditions or medications such as blood thinners can limit options. If treatment is possible then it can begin in your first visit. Further costs (depending on treatment) can be confirmed by the Podiatrist as verruca treatment is ongoing and requires several sessions.
