Welcome to the Corner House Foot & Health Clinic

At your initial appointment, several essential steps will be taken to comprehensively understand your requirements and determine the suitability of treatment. The podiatrist will:

  1. Health Assessment: Inquire about your overall health, including any prescribed medications and allergies you might have. It's particularly important to inform the podiatrist about any allergies, especially those related to substances in contact with your skin, such as latex rubber or iodine. Bringing a list of your medications is advised.

  2. Foot Condition Discussion: Discuss the specific foot issue you're experiencing. This will help the podiatrist gain a comprehensive understanding of your condition.

  3. Physical Examination: Conduct a thorough examination of your feet, including checking circulation and sensation. This step is crucial to accurately assess your condition.

  4. Footwear Evaluation: Review your footwear. It's recommended that you wear or bring along the shoes you frequently use.

  5. Treatment Suitability: Based on the assessment, the podiatrist will determine if your footcare needs align with the services we provide. If your needs cannot be addressed by our service, the podiatrist will explain the reasons for this and provide guidance on alternative options.

This initial appointment serves as a foundation for tailoring your treatment plan to meet your specific requirements. Your active participation and open communication during this process are highly valued.

We're here to assist you by ensuring a seamless and effective treatment experience. To achieve this, we kindly request that you:

  1. Arrive punctually for your scheduled appointment.

  2. Prior to your appointment, ensure that all powder, cream, and nail polish have been removed.

Your Treatment Journey:

A personalized treatment plan will be collaboratively established, outlining the necessary steps for both you (or your caregiver) and the podiatrist to manage your condition.

The podiatrist will provide a clear explanation of the treatment process, including the instruments or equipment that will be employed. If protective padding or dressings are required, you'll receive guidance on their proper care between appointments.

Adhering closely to the podiatrist's guidance is crucial. If you encounter any uncertainties, please don't hesitate to inquire, and if you encounter challenges in caring for your feet or following the treatment plan, inform the podiatrist.

Our aim is to promptly evaluate and address your needs. In order to do so effectively, we need to maximize appointment availability. If you're unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please inform us at your earliest convenience so that we can arrange a new appointment for you.

Preparing for a Home Visit:

We provide home visits for patients who are completely confined to their homes. Although we cannot guarantee a specific visit time, we will inform you of the appointment date and whether the visit is planned for the morning or afternoon. If there's an unexpected delay, we will make an effort to notify you.

To facilitate a successful home visit, your cooperation is appreciated in the following ways:

  1. Communication: If you are unable to answer the door and need to make special arrangements, please contact the podiatrist in advance.

  2. Lighting: Ensure that the room where the treatment will take place is well-lit to support effective treatment.

  3. Clean Towel: Have a clean towel available for the podiatrist's use.

  4. Pet Management: While the treatment is being conducted, it's helpful to keep pets in a separate room to ensure a focused and safe environment.

  5. Ventilation: If you smoke, make sure the room is adequately ventilated at least 30 minutes before the scheduled visit time.

Our commitment is to provide you with the best possible care in the comfort of your own home. Your assistance in these preparations greatly contributes to a smooth and productive home visit experience.
