What is a pedorthist?

Essentially, a pedorthist is comparable to a pharmacist. When you get a prescription regarding foot issues, they are the ones who fill it.

What to expect when making an appointment

  • Before
  • During
  • After
  • The first step is almost always getting a prescription. While we can take appointments without one, we are then limited in what we can do to help you. The next step is setting up the appointment; just give us a call or use our site to do so. Appointments can vary in time, depending on what needs to be done, but generally they are either a half an hour or an hour.

    Before you come in, make sure that you have everything that you need. Insurance information is almost always needed, from your primary insurance provider and if you have supplemental you can provide us with that as well. We can only accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Medicare as assigned. We can accept other providers, but we can only file non-assigned. If the appointment is for diabetic footwear, we will need the Waxbergs forms filled out by your doctor(s). You can find this form at the top of this page. If you are recovering or refurbishing orthotics, we will need your current orthotics or the casts from the last time you were casted.

    Please note, when you have an appointment set up, please try to be as prompt as possible the day of the appointment so we can maximize the time to help you.

Pedorthic Evaluation

Here is an example of a pedorthist beginning an evaluation of the feet. Most likely followed with watching the patient walk for gait analysis.
