Your patient journey...
Once you have booked your first consultation, I look forward to meeting you at one of my practice locations. At the first appointment, I will conduct a detailed history and clinical examination. Further investigations may be performed as needed. I would then explain the diagnosis and options of treatment. This may involve physiotherapy, modification of insoles or footwear, targeted injections or operation. The mutually agreeable management option would try and cater to your needs and expectation. We would then discuss the rehabilitation and prognosis. You shall then be empowered to make your management decision with me helping you all along the process.
