Do I need a referral to see a podiatrist?

No. Anyone can visit a podiatrist, but if you are a returned service veteran seeking treatment under a Gold or White card, or your doctor has registered you under the Medicare Plus EPC plan, you will need a referral.

Do private health funds cover podiatry?

Yes, all major health funds cover podiatry if you have the relevant extras cover. Check your level of cover to determine your rebate. We are able to process your claims on the spot at our clinic through our HICAPS system.

Who wears orthotics?

People of all ages with a variety of lower limb and foot conditions wear orthotics. Sports people are often prescribed orthotics to correct their gait pattern, maximise their performance and help their recovery from injury. People with chronic foot pain, such as heel pain or arthritis that is limiting mobility can also benefit from orthotics.

What is required for my appointment?

Please remember to bring any recent X-rays, scans, paperwork or letters relating to your complaint. Ideally comfortable clothing should be worn allowing easy assessment of your legs and feet. It's also helpful to bring your usual or most regularly worn shoes, running shoes and any current or previous orthotics.
