Why choose an online appointment?
Our Podiatrists understand that there may be many factors that stop you from being able to attend appointments in person. These might include long work hours and other personal commitments, living in a country or remote location, a busy family life, limited access to transportation, physical limitations, sickness and pain barriers. Online appointments break down these barriers and allow us to help you from the comfort of your own home.
There may also be periods of time in the future where we are required to maintain social distancing standards, or you might be feeling unwell on the day of your appointment. Online appointments do not require face-to-face contact during your consultation. Using such a platform allows us to work together while still upholding safe and hygienic work conditions. During such times it’s important to continue your rehabilitation. Online appointments allow another easy point of contact to help you achieve your goals. We are able to answer any questions you may have and give advice to help you continue your journey.
Can I book an appointment if I don’t live in Adelaide?
You can make contact from anywhere in Australia – all that is required for the consultation to run smoothly is good internet connection! From this initial point of contact we can determine if you need further treatment in the clinic. For those who live interstate or remotely we may be able to refer you to help that is closer to home.
Can I transition to a clinic appointment after an online appointment?
Of course! Our Podiatrists will determine if you are a suitable candidate for in-person appointments.
Can you still help me without hands-on treatment?
Yes! Although we offer manual therapy, nail and skin care in the clinic we are still able to help with a range of conditions online to ensure you are reaching your goals. We are trained professionals in the areas of load management and training advice, return to sport management, exercise prescription, goal setting, nail cutting techniques, footwear education, pain management plans and diabetic foot care.
Your health is important to us. Our aim is to provide you with the information and support you need to continue your rehabilitation program at home!
