House Calls Q & A

What happens during a house call?

Similar to an in-office visit, a house call gives you the opportunity to discuss your foot or ankle problem with an experienced podiatrist. House calls give you access to the high-quality care you need in the comfort of your own home. 

During your house call, your doctor discusses the details of your foot or ankle problem, including your symptoms, medical history, and any steps you’ve taken to relieve your condition. Your doctor also performs an in-depth physical exam checking for any pain, swelling, and other abnormalities. 

Certain conditions like bunions or ingrown toenails can be diagnosed through a simple physical exam. A house call can help you avoid an unnecessary trip to the doctor’s office. 

If your condition is minor, your doctor may recommend steps for at-home treatment. If your condition is more advanced or causes significant pain, your doctor discusses your treatment options and schedules you for an in-office follow-up. 

What conditions can a podiatrist treat?

At Richmond Podiatry Associates, the team has extensive experience treating a wide range of foot and ankle problems, including:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoe
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Ankle sprains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Nail fungus
  • Warts
  • Neuromas
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries

The team specializes in comprehensive care and offers a number of conservative and surgical treatments. During your house call, your doctor works with you to determine the best solution for your condition.  

What happens after my house call?

In most cases, your foot or ankle condition can be treated with conservative care. Your doctor may recommend treatments like pain medication, therapeutic exercises, or RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) to relieve your pain and help you recover. In some cases, your condition may require an in-office visit for additional testing and treatment. 

The specialists at Richmond Podiatry Associates are committed to finding the right treatment for each patient. The team is committed to preserving your health and helping you maintain an active lifestyle. 

If your condition can’t be treated during your house call, the team offers a number of in-office treatments to promote faster healing, like UltraMIST® and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. To learn more, book your appointment by phone or online today.
