How to Get the Most Out of Your Podiatry Visit

If you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to be healthy, we hope making an appointment with Ankle & Foot Specialist of NJ is on your list of things to do to achieve your goal! After all, the health of your feet directly impacts how well you can stick to a new workout routine!

Of course, just as you need to prepare for a trip to the gym — packing a bag with a water bottle, change of clothes, shower shoes, a towel, etc. — you should also prepare for a podiatry visit so things go as smoothly as you’re hoping that first mile on the treadmill does!

To ensure an efficient, productive, and pleasant experience, you can fill out necessary paperwork online beforehand. Also, check with your insurance to see if you need a referral. Having your family medical history handy helps, too.

It’s a good idea to write down any questions you have, symptoms you’re experiencing, as well as any medications you take. Also, plan to bring along your favorite footwear – we can tell a lot about your feet by the wear patterns of your shoes.

Preparing for your podiatry visit in this way will ensure you get the most out of your time here. We want you to feel comfortable, relaxed, and welcome and are committed to calming any concerns, answering your questions, and taking the time to make you feel right at home.

So get ready to stop by before you head to the gym. We’re here for you and are happy to help keep you and your feet healthy for the new year and beyond!

Schedule your appointment online or by calling our Warren or South Plainfield/Edison, NJ office by dialing 908-222-8980. We look forward to seeing you!
