Can I see my general practitioner for nail fungus?

 

A:

If you suspect nail fungus, it is best to see a podiatrist. Podiatrists have spent many years training to spot, evaluate, and treat problems in the ankles, feet, toes, and nails, and podiatrists treat fungal nails regularly. Your podiatrist will have much more experience in treating fungal nails than your general practitioner.

 

Your general practitioner may be able to treat your nail fungus, but most general practitioners do not have access to some of the treatments that podiatrists use, like laser treatment for nail fungus, and some general practitioners will just refer you to a podiatrist or possibly a dermatologist anyway. 


Watch our videos on nail fungus above for more information on fungal nails and treatments. 
 

If you suspect nail fungus, feel free to contact our office online for an appointment or give us a call at (888) 713-0906.
