About Podiatry

A podiatrist, a doctor of podiatric medicine, is a healthcare professional who diagnoses and treats conditions, abnormalities, and diseases of the foot. 

The podiatrist has the expertise and skills necessary for the relief of pain in the feet, joints, and muscles. In order to treat you, the podiatrist uses surgical, medicinal, pharmaceutical, mechanical, and chemical means. In addition, the podiatrist holds a radiology permit. In Quebec, he must be a member of the Order of Podiatrists. He works in private practice.

Foot problems are very common in the general population. They can appear from childhood and at any time in our lives. Certain medical conditions can also be responsible and lead to other problems and pain in the feet. Foot conditions can be prevented if treatment is done in time. If foot problems are not treated, they can worsen and become difficult to treat or sometimes even irreversible.

Is there a benefit to consulting a podiatrist rather than my family doctor?

Absolutely! Podiatrists are specialists trained in all medical conditions relating to the feet, while a family doctor generally treats all conditions of the body.

Yes.

Do insurance companies reimburse podiatry care?

Yes. Most insurance companies reimburse part or all of podiatry services depending on the insurance coverage. However, it is always best to check with your insurance.

Can a podiatrist prescribe laboratory or blood tests?

Yes. Blood tests allow the podiatrist to confirm a podiatric diagnosis or to rule out any risk of systemic disease. These tests and results also help to properly establish a safe treatment plan and ensure a proper follow-up.

How do podiatrists diagnose foot conditions?

To assess your situation, the podiatrist may ask you to stand and walk so that they can watch you for a range of motion. If necessary, they may also prescribe tests, such as :

What will an online consultation with a podiatrist be like?

Appointments usually take between 15 to 30 minutes depending on your condition. The online podiatrist will ask you to describe your symptoms and reason for the appointment.

Our nurse team can perform lab & blood tests in the comfort of your home or office. Private lab costs are covered 80% or more by most private insurances.
