There are a number of questions patients often have, so we decided to include the most common ones below. Just click the question that is closest to the one you have, and a fancy box will expand to reveal the answer. (Pretty neat, huh?) If your question isn't answered here, though, you can always give us a call or click here to send us your question through our short contact form.

What is a podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a specialist who provides medical diagnosis and treatment of all foot and ankle conditions such as: bunions, heel pain, heel spurs, hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, warts, corns and calluses. A podiatrist also renders care of sprains, fractures, infections, and injuries of the foot, ankle and heel. In addition to undergraduate university training, podiatrists also attend podiatric medical school for a doctorate degree in podiatry. Podiatric physicians are required to take State and National exams, as well as be licensed by the state in which they practice.

According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, there are an estimated 15,000 practicing podiatrists in the United States. Podiatrists are in more demand today because of a rapidly aging population.

 

Will my insurance cover my visit to a podiatrist?
Most insurance carriers treat your office visit to the podiatrist no differently than a office visit to your general physician. We will perform a complimentary insurance benefits check for you before you are seen by the doctor.


Which insurances do you accept?
We accept almost all insurances. As a board certified podiatrist, we are also a preferred provider for almost all major health plans. A partial list of the most common insurances are:

Access Direct, Accountable Health Plan, Aetna, BC/BS, BCE Emergis/ProAmerica, Beechstreet, Care Improvement Plus, CCN, Cigna, First Health, Galaxy Health Networks, Healthcare Networks of America (HNA), Health Smart, Humana Choice Care, Humana Military (Tricare), Interplan Health Group, Medicaid, Medicare, PHCS, ProNet, Tricare, TRS, Unicare, United Health Care, United Health Network, USA Managed Care Organization.
If you do not see your particular insurance on the list then please call the clinic because there is a good chance we are a preferred provider.

 

Do you accept Medicare
Our office is a preferred provider for Medicare and we utilize the latest billing software to insure that the billing is accurate. We will also bill your secondary insurance if it is not automatically billed by Medicare for our patients.

 

Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept all major credit cards and debit cards.

 

How long have you been practicing in Corsicana?
We have been providing quality care and service in Corsicana since 1999.

 

Do you also treat children with foot problems?
Absolutely. We treat the entire family, including children with foot and ankle conditions, from flat feet to warts.

 

And Here Are Some Helpful Tips For Maintaining Healthy Feet:


DO: Walk! This is the best form of exercise for your feet. Just make sure you have good shoes.
DO: Wear properly fitting, protective footwear even in your own home.
DO: Use ice (cold) to treat an injury. This treatment produces a numbing effect and prevents swelling and pain.
DO: Investigate “walking pumps.” These shoes have an athletic shoe type construction, wider toe room, reinforced heels and are available in many fashionable styles.
DO: Seek medical attention at the first sign of an injury or infection in the foot or ankle. Treatments require an investment of time and are easier to treat when they first present.
DO NOT: Take life lying down. Regardless of your physical condition, walking is beneficial.
DO NOT: Go barefoot. This increases the risk of injury and infection and provides no support for either the foot or the ankle.
DO NOT: Use heat or hot water to treat a foot or ankle injury. Heat promotes blood flow, causing increased swelling.
DO NOT: Wear heeled shoes that exceed two inches for extended periods of time. This is an open invitation for foot problems such as metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot).
DO NOT: Ignore foot pain. Contrary to popular belief, foot pain is not normal!
