Q: Where in Macquarie Centre are you located?
A: We are located on the lower level (Level 1), if you head towards Macquarie Ice Rink you are on the right track!
Q: Where should I park to be closest to your clinic?
A: Enter the centre from Herring Road and turn right towards the ice rink. The silver level car park, which is one level down from where you enter, is the closest to our clinic. We are located near Macquarie Ice Rink, Macquarie Medical Centre, MMI, Bupa and Medibank.
Q: Do I need a referral?
A: No, you do not need a referral to visit a Podiatrist
Q: Are you covered by Medicare?
A: In certain circumstances, you may be able to receive your Podiatry treatment under Medicare. Your GP will need to refer you to a Podiatrist for you to receive a Medicare rebate.
Q: Can I use my Private Health Insurance for Podiatry?
A: Yes. If you have Private Health Insurance, bring your membership card along with you for your consultation. If you are covered for Podiatry, you will receive some money towards your consultation. Please note, we require your card at the time of consultation to process your payment through your health fund.
Q: Do you accept Department of Veteran’s Affairs referrals?
A: Yes, we do. We just require a referral from your GP that you bring with you at your first appointment.
Q: Should I bring my X-Rays?
A: If you have any X-Rays or other reports that are relevant to your condition, please bring them to your appointment so your Podiatrist is best able to diagnose and treat your foot pain.
Q: What clothing should I wear?
A: If you are coming for a Biomechanical Assessment, it is best if you can wear shorts or loose clothing so we can see your legs!
Q: Can I have nail polish on my nails for my appointment?
A: Your Podiatrist will most likely want to see your nails to ensure they are healthy. We recommend that you remove your nail polish prior to your appointment. Some nail polish (Shellac, for example) is unable to be removed by your Podiatrist and will limit their ability to assess and treat your feet.
Q: Should I bring my sports shoes?
A: Yes, please bring shoes that you wear regularly, or any other shoe that is causing you a problem. Your Podiatrist will be able to assess the wear patterns in the shoe and offer advice on footwear to help your foot pain.
Q: Are you open late nights or on Saturdays?
A: Yes, we are open later on Thursdays and also open from 8am – 1pm on Saturdays.
Q: How do you clean your instruments?
A: Foot Right Podiatry complies with the Australian Standards for sterilisation of surgical and non-surgical instruments. All our instrument packs are sterilised within individual packages which are logged and tracked according to strict guidelines.
