When should I see a podiatrist?

A podiatrist is a doctor who is specially trained in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating conditions and injuries that affect the feet and ankles through both conservative and surgical means. Their specialized education and practical experience make them the only choice for dealing with foot and ankle problems, ranging from ankle sprains and heel pain to ingrown toenails, bunions, diabetic wound care, and more.

Foot pain is not normal, and many common foot conditions will not improve without treatment—they will only get worse and harder to deal with the longer you let them go. That’s why we strongly recommend you see a podiatrist as soon as you are able if you have any kind of persistent discomfort or problems with your feet. Timely intervention will save a lot of pain, a lot of trouble, and potentially a lot of money, too.

Jeffrie C. Leibovitz, D.P.M. has been practicing podiatry for more than 30 years, and his state-of-the-art Indianapolis office features the most modern diagnostic equipment. If you have any concerns at all about your feet or ankles, please make an appointment by calling (317) 545-0505.
