This appointment includes medical history, musculoskeletal assessments including a gait analysis, diagnosis, and treatment. This is for patients who complain of pain to their feet, legs and back that may be related to their feet. Footwear is also discussed.

 

AND 

 

2. Skin/Nail Care Consultation - $80-95 initial appointment and $75 for repeat appointments

This appointment includes a medical history and depending on your needs may include checking the blood circulation and feeling in your feet. You will be involved in a discussion of your treatment plan and diagnosis.
