Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the questions we receive the most. If we missed anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.
1. Is a GP referral necessary for an appointment?
No, there’s no need for a referral to attend an appointment in our clinic. Simply contact us to book in for your consultation.
2. Does an initial consultation include treatment?
Yes, your initial consultation will include a full assessment and treatment. In some cases, you may need to return for a check-up appointment depending the required treatment, but this can only be decided when our practitioner has assessed the issue.
3. Do I need to prepare my feet before my appointment?
No, there’s nothing you need to do to prepare your feet before an appointment. There is also no need to be embarrassed about any issue you may be suffering with or the condition of your feet. Foot ailments are very common for all ages.
4. Do you offer pain relief?
If needed, our chiropodist/podiatrist can offer the application of a cold analgesic spray to alleviate pain during treatment. Local anaesthetic requires a prescription from your doctor.
6. How often should I visit a chiropodist?
This is different for everyone. Once you’ve been to a chiropodist/podiatrist you will be better equipped to decide when you need to come back, if at all. Some clients attend every 6-8 weeks, others once a year.
7. Is chiropody covered by medical card or health insurance?
Chiropody/podiatry is covered by health insurance with most policies. You would need to consult your health insurance provider. Unfortunately, there is no support for medical cards to cover chiropody appointments in the southeast of Ireland.
8. Do you offer orthotics?
Yes, we offer a wide range of orthotics from off the shelf to semi-customised to prescription. We also offer a GaitScan service which provides a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation for each patient and helps us to manufacture insoles specifically tailored to the patient’s individual condition.
9. Is there a cancellation fee?
Yes, if you need to cancel your appointment, we respectfully request at least 24-hour notice. Your advanced notice will allow another client access to that appointment time. A first time missed appointment will incur a fee equal to 50% of a standard appointment. Thereafter, a fee equal to that of a standard appointment will be incurred.
