What to Expect At Your First Appointment

by | Aug 10, 2015

Initial experiences can be nerve-wracking, overwhelming, or even scary. Think back to the moments leading up to your first kiss, job, or pregnancy and you will surely be able to identify with this. The time before a new event — like visiting a podiatrist, perhaps — doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety when you know what to expect. This really isn’t all that different than when you make your first appointment with Brook Valley Podiatry at our Spring Valley, NY office.

The best place to start when it comes to your initial appointment is the reason you are coming in to see us. Take note of what symptoms you are experiencing, when the issue began, and if the condition is better or worse at various times. Recount if you have ever had an issue with that particular foot or ankle in the past. All of this information will be helpful for when you come in to our office.

Now that you have established the problem and gathered information, give us call. You can reach our Spring Valley, NY office at (845) 352-7507. While scheduling your appointment, be sure to inquire and verify that we participate with your insurance plan.

When it is time to come in for your first visit at our office, we ask that you please arrive 15-20 minutes early. You will check in with our front desk, at which point you should be prepared to present your insurance card and payment. We will provide you with a form to fill out, which you can do while waiting to be called for your appointment.

During your visit, we will find out a bit about you, your medical history, and the condition that brought you into our office. We will evaluate your condition, provide an accurate diagnosis, and then get you started on an effective treatment plan.

There is no need to be overwhelmed or anxious when you make your first appointment with Brook Valley Podiatry. Our warm, caring podiatrist and staff is here to help you with the expert care necessary for any foot or ankle condition. We are glad to answer any questions you may have, so call us today. You can reach our Spring Valley office at (845) 352-7507. If you prefer, you can also schedule your appointment through our online form.
