FAQs

 

Do I need a referral to see a podiatrist?

There is generally no referral required to see any of our podiatrists.

How long are appointments?

General appointment slots are typically 30 minutes in length, although minor surgeries such as those on ingrown toenails can take up to an hour.

Can I get a same-day appointment?

Usually we're booked about a week ahead of time, but cancellation appointments may become available at short notice.

Do you do home visits?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer home visits at this point in time.

Can I book an appointment online?

Due to the varied nature of appointment type and length relative to the issue, all bookings are currently to be made over the phone or in person at the reception desk.

What's the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?

There isn't a difference other than to indicate the period in time when the qualification was obtained. The term Chiropodist has not been used in New Zealand for around 40 years;  Chiropody became a regulated profession in NZ in 1969 and the professional title was changed to Podiatrist shortly after.
