An initial assessment includes discussion of your full medical history and a neurovascular review; where your pedal pulses will be checked with handheld Doppler ultrasound and nerves assessed using a monofilament. Typical problems treated include: - - long nails - thick (onychauxic) nails - fungal (onychomycotic) nails (incl. sample for you to take to your GP for microscopy & culture) - involuted and ingrowing (onychocryptosis) nails - hard skin (callus) - corns - dry skin (anhidrosis) - athlete's foot (tinea pedis) - assessment of skin rashes and odd 'lumps n bumps' A management plan will be discussed and all treatments are completed with the application of a moisturising nail oil and relaxing foot massage. Additional Costs All additional devices (e.g. Bland-Rose toe props, removable felt props, heel pads, insoles) and some medicaments (e.g. silver nitrate) will incur nominal further charges; please see Fees schedule on my website. Referrals letters will incur an additional £15 administration charge. NB: in certain circumstances a template letter can be issued on the day, for no additional charge. Template letters are the patient's responsibility to pass on to the appropriate person (e.g. your GP).
