What does a podiatrist do?

A podiatrist is a qualified health professional specialising in the diagnoses and treatment of foot and ankle disorders. These can include skin and nail issues, foot pain, diabetic foot care and assessments, muscle and ligament pain, and any other issues relating to the foot and ankle.

How do I make an appointment?

To book an appointment please email us or call the clinic and speak to one of our friendly receptionists on (03) 9888 2311.

Do I Need a referral from my GP?

You do not need a referral to see a podiatrist.

If you are a patient with a chronic medication condition, such as diabetes, arthritis, vision impairment, heart disease, etc, you may be eligible for Medicare rebates through the Enhanced Primary Care Program. You will need to be referred to our clinic by your local doctor. Speak to your doctor for more information on this care plan.

What should I bring to my appointment?

– If possible bring the footwear that you wear most of the time (i.e. for working, during the day) and / or the footwear you play sport in

– Any scans/imaging (x-rays, ultrasounds) you may have had on your feet

– Any referral letters if you were sent by your doctors or another health professional

Can I get a rebate from my private health insurance?

Mt Waverley Foot Clinic offers HICAPS facilities which allow our patients to claim private health insurance rebates conveniently and immediately at the time of consultation if they are insured with eligible health funds. This avoids having to send off or claim online for private health fund rebates.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept Mastercard, Visa, Cash and Cheques.
