We now offer Telemedicine!
Home Foot Care, Inc. is excited to announce that we are now offering tele-health services to our patients! Having a “virtual” visit from the comfort of your home is the best way to assess the need for treatment and keep your feet safe. Our foot doctors will do a consultation via your smartphone, tablet or PC. We can provide valuable information, feedback and care for many common foot and ankle conditions. If our doctors determine that your condition requires an in-person treatment, we will be happy to schedule a mobile foot doctor to visit your home. Please contact our office if you would like to schedule a tele-health visit, have questions, or would like to verify if your insurance covers telemedicine. For those who do not have insurance, or coverage for telemedicine, the price is $75 per 15 minutes.
