Video visits for podiatry

Get expert podiatry care without leaving home through video visits

From burning and tingling to nagging aches from an old injury, foot and ankle pain can stop you in your tracks. But thanks to video visits, you don’t need to venture into the clinic for every podiatry appointment. You can get personalized and convenient care from the comfort of home.

Just like an office visit, video visits bring you face-to-face with a board-certified podiatrist, who specializes treating acute and chronic foot and ankle conditions.

During your appointment, your podiatrist will listen to your concerns and symptoms, ask questions to understand your medical history and work with you to create a tailored treatment plan. Video visits are billed the same as in-person visits.

Now is always the time to take care of yourself. Don’t wait. Easy access to quality foot and ankle care is at your fingertips.

What kind podiatry treatment can you receive through a video visit?

Whether you’re noticing bunion symptoms or you have a foot fracture that’s on the mend, we offer consultations, follow-ups and treatments for a range of conditions and concerns, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis

Schedule a video visit with a podiatrist

Do video visits replace in-person podiatry appointments?

No. Hands-on, in-person care is an important part of your treatment. Video visits just offer another way for you to conveniently and meaningfully connect with your podiatrist. Your podiatrist will work with you to determine the right mix of appointment types.
