Podiatrists at Stonnington Podiatry are specialists in the diagnostic and management of foot and ankle pathologies. We treat people of all ages and can accurately prescribe footwear and foot orthoses with our specialty computer gait analysis equipment and scanning technology. We are a well established clinic in the Stonnington region for over 15 years with strong affiliations with local sporting groups and communities.
Let's answer some questions.
- Why should I see a Podiatrist?
- Can I get rebates?
- How much does it cost?
- Do I need a GP referral?
- What should I bring to my appointment?
Yes, if you qualify for an Enhanced Care Plan from your general practitioner or if you have private health insurance. Private health funds can cover podiatry but it will depend on your level of cover as to whether you are eligible to claim for these services. You will need to contact your health fund to find out about your personal entitlements to podiatry fees. Our HICAPS facility allows us to directly claim from your private health fund at the time of your treatment.
Please contact our clinic on 03 9576 0467 for more information. Podiatry consultation costs depend on the service required and if you have any pensioner concessions. Please note we do not bulk bill or provide a concessional rate.
Not generally, however we do accept eligible Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) or Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) referrals from your specialist or GP. If you are attending under a TAC claim you will need a referral from your GP for the initial consultation. Please note we do not treat Work-cover patients.
Footwear is an important part of the consultation so please ensure you bring several pairs of casual, work or sporting footwear to your appointment along with any insoles or foot orthoses that you wear or have worn in the past.
