Telemedicine with Your Podiatrist

Get expert foot and ankle care from the comfort of your home! Neuhaus Foot and Ankle has podiatrists available to diagnose and treat your foot or ankle issues in a more convenient way than ever before. 

How does telemedicine work?

Telemedicine works just like making a video call with your loved ones. If you are familiar with apps like FaceTime or Facebook Messenger, you’ll find telemedicine a great alternative to going to the clinic.

Will insurance pay for video visits?

Due to events related to COVID-19, insurers have removed the barriers that prevented us from providing services via telemedicine. If your insurance covers a doctor visit, then in most cases it will cover a telemedicine visit. 

What about Medicare?

Medicare recently announced it will cover telemedicine for everyone. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, there will be zero out-of-pocket costs. Read more here

Is the quality of care the same as an in-person visit?

While there’s no replacement for in-office technology like x-rays and ultrasounds, cameras on modern mobile devices have such a high resolution, your podiatrist will be able to see your feet as though he/she were in the room with you. 

Talking to your podiatrist about your symptoms along with being able to see your foot is a great option for getting a treatment plan from the comfort of your home. 

What if I need a prescription or procedure?

Your podiatrist can write a prescription as if you were in our clinic!

If you need a procedure done, you can still visit one of our clinics. As a medical practice, we have always taken steps to promote a clean and healthy environment for our patients. We have doubled our efforts in order to welcome everyone that needs us during this time. 

Why not just wait until this is all over to go to the doctor?

With many working from home right now, it may be an ideal time to see the doctor. Do you have more time to take care of those house projects or exercise outdoors? Let us help you get back to doing your favorite activities without the foot pain or problems. 

Also, as an independent, privately owned medical practice, we encourage you to support a local clinic while getting expert foot and ankle care from our staff and physicians.
