So, let’s assume for a minute that your feet hurt. Or maybe you have bunions, or toenail fungus. Maybe you’ve stopped at your primary care physician’s office to discuss your concerns, and they let you know you need to see a podiatrist.
You can go with a referral from your doctor (and hopefully they refer you to a great podiatric office like ours!), or you can go straight to the internet like everyone else and do a search for “podiatrist” or “foot doctor”. You’ll see a bunch of choices, including our office if you’re searching in or around Southfield. How can you pick between them, and how can you judge which podiatrist is truly best for you?
1.) Ask you doctor. Many primary care physicians know local podiatrists, especially doctors who see patients with diabetes. You PCP works directly with podiatrists to ensure that individuals with diabetes and foot related conditions get exceptional treatment. If you trust your PCP, ask them for a referral, and if you’d like insight on a particular podiatrist ask about them by name.
2.) Read reviews. The internet is a strange place, allowing you to review your favorite restaurant alongside reviewing your doctor. At our podiatrist practice, we truly care how satisfied our patients are with their care, and as such we ask them about their experience regularly. Because of that & our commitment to the highest level of care, we stand out from the crowd in terms of the sheer volume of positive patient reviews for our practice. See for yourself!
