What To Expect
Please bring the following to your appointment:
- Your health insurance card and photo ID
- Prior medical records, diagnostic tests, x-rays, and MRI (if available)
- A list of questions or concerns (optional, but recommended)
Check with your insurance company if you need a referral prior to your appointment.
If you have special requests or needs, please inform one of our staff members before arriving for your appointment, so that we can accommodate you.
If you have orthotics or use an assisted walking device, please feel free to bring them with you as well.
Before and during your initial visit at Premier Podiatry, we make sure to obtain thorough information about you and your medical history. Our staff will ask you questions about your current medical issues, symptoms, family history, medications, allergies, certain habits and surgeries that you might have had. Having the most up-to-date information ensures that the doctor can provide the best possible treatment options for you.
Our patient care coordinator is going to help you fill out your forms electronically if you haven't already done so prior to your appointment.
Our podiatrist, Dr. Velimir Petkov, is going to examine your feet in detail. He might run or order any necessary tests that will help identify the area of concern. Based on your medical history, thorough examination and test results, Dr. Petkov is going to make specific recommendations in terms of a treatment plan. We always strive to provide you with the best possible foot care, so that you can enjoy an active lifestyle.
We invite you to take a proactive approach when it comes to your foot health. Ask us any questions that you might have about your condition or treatment plan. We are happy to educate patients about podiatry, related conditions, and proper foot care.
If your condition requires a prescription, one will be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
