FAQ - Podiatrist
What can I expect at my first appointment with a podiatrist?
If you’ve never visited a podiatrist before, at your first appointment the doctor will likely start by asking some questions about your medical history, your current health and lifestyle, and what symptoms you are experiencing. A thorough examination of your foot will follow, and an x-ray may be taken. Then the doctor will diagnose the problem and discuss treatment options with you. Dr. Raymond A. DiPretoro Jr. also stresses that new patients should be sure to ask a lot of questions. That way you will know exactly what to expect from the foot care you receive. Often the doctor will share helpful tips as well, and provide informational materials. The more you know, the more comfortable you will be with your treatment.
