The world of virtual healthcare is ever-expanding, so why not offer podiatry appointments via telehealth, too? Parkview has invested in the right tools to provide the best care options for our patients. This innovative technology has made it convenient and efficient to see a specialist and ask important questions regarding your health. And now, that includes your feet.

Which foot conditions can be treated via telehealth?

Obviously, physical touch and treatment cannot be done over telehealth, but the vast majority of foot ailments can be treated conservatively and assessed virtually. Over telehealth, we can give recommendations and advice on:

Generally speaking, a podiatrist can assess the concern and provide care recommendations and next steps for the patient. This list is not complete, as there are other conditions suitable for virtual treatment as well.  

Any condition that requires physical touch or treatment would warrant an in-office visit. These might include:

  • Callus removal
  • Ingrown toenail removal
  • Wart removal
  • Surgical treatment

What to expect at a telehealth appointment

A typical podiatry telehealth appointment will consist of gathering patient history, a visual examination of the issue and a discussion around treatment options. An in-person follow-up appointment can also be scheduled on the call if further assistance is needed.

Making the most of your telehealth appointment

To make sure your telehealth appointment goes smoothly, you’ll want to ensure that your technology is ready to go. Make sure your phone or computer has the most recent version of MyChart installed. For podiatry, it’s easiest to use a phone or tablet for your call as those devices are the easiest to move to show your feet to your provider during the exam. Be sure to test your equipment with the MyChart testing setup. Remember, lighting is very important during a virtual exam, so make sure you are set up in a well-lit area.

Why choose a telehealth podiatry appointment?

The beauty of the virtual appointment is the convenience. A telehealth appointment lets you meet with your specialist during your workday, so you don’t have to take a full day off work, plus it saves you travel time. Telehealth can also be helpful if you live in a more remote area or have limited transportation to see a podiatry specialist.

Next time you have questions or concerns about the condition of your feet, consider giving telehealth a try.
