Should You Call the Podiatrist?

At Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care, we often see patients who have waited longer than they should to come in to have a foot issue evaluated. When this happens, it often means that the problem is far worse than it was originally, and the treatment now required is more invasive and of longer duration. Our podiatrists, Dr. Varun Gujral, and Dr. Nrupa Shah, would rather see you sooner than later. Below are some ways you know it’s time to call the podiatrist:

Your feet are often the first place that other systemic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and circulation problems present. That’s why it’s always better to be safe than sorry. If you experience any symptoms or changes in your feet that are concerning, don’t hesitate to contact our Edison, Monroe or Monmouth Junction office for an appointment. Even if it turns out to be nothing serious, the podiatrist can make recommendations to help you eliminate the discomfort and keep your feet healthy.
