In many cases, emergency foot and ankle problems can be treated at the doctor's office. Emergency office visits are given priority in arranging for an appointment.

SECOND OPINIONS:

If you are thinking about surgery but need a second opinion from a experienced Podiatrist, both Foot Doctors are equally qualified to provide a surgical second opinion based on many years of experience.  During the course of obtaining a second surgical opinion, you will receive a thorough history and physical examination as well as the doctor will explain what is the medical problem and what can be done to correct it from a surgical standpoint. The second surgical opinion will be truly an independent opinion and not just a rubber stamp of the original surgeon's recommendations. Typically, one hour is spent with the doctor for a second opinion consultation.

HMO 2ND OPINIONS:

Due to the many limits placed on being an HMO patient, over the years the doctors have provided numerous HMO second opinion consultations. After the second opinion consultation is over, the doctor will send a report and call the HMO doctor if the medical problem requires prompt treatment. Because an outside specialist is providing a second opinion to the HMO doctor, usually proper medical treatment will then be provided by the HMO if this treatment has been delayed or is still pending review.
