Frequently Asked Questions

Facts_And_Questions

What are your office hours?

Our office is open Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm.

What type of insurance do you take?

Barrett Podiatry happily accepts assignments of benefits from all major insurance carriers including BCBS, Aetna, UHC, Humana, Tricare and Medicare, as well as Medicare Advantage Plans PFFS and workers’ compensation. In order to serve more patients’ needs, we also provide care through managed care plans including HMOs (health maintenance organizations) and PPOs (preferred provider organizations) with the appropriate referral. Normally, we receive HMO referrals through patients’ primary care physicians. Self referrals are generally permitted for PPO participants. However, because POS (point of service) plans are a modified PPO, they may require a referral from your physician.

Stop taking it. If the reaction is that severe, go to the ER. If not, contact the office for a possible change in medication or instructions.

How do I care for my surgical site until I follow up with my doctor?

Keep clean and dry. Do not scrub, rub, or scratch your incision. Do not disturb your surgical bandage unless given specific instructions by your doctor.

When will I get my prescriptions for pain medicine or anti–biotics?

Post–op prescriptions are given by your doctor either before or the day of surgery.

When will I get time confirmation for time of arrival for surgery?

Office staff will call a couple of days prior to surgery to let you know when you should arrive for your procedure.

Why do I need to bring my previous x–rays to my first visit?

Previous films are needed so the physician can see your injury immediately after it happened, and so the doctor can compare the images to the new images if needed.

What does MRI show?

It will show high quality images of the inside of the human body.
