The Foot Hub understands that some of our patients may not be able to come into our Sydney foot clinic for podiatry visits and as a result we offer home podiatry visits. Home podiatry visits allow patients to be seen in the comfort of their homes and can provide ease and convenience for many patients.
If you are a patient who needs to see a podiatrist in Sydney and finds it difficult to attend a podiatry clinic, home visits are a great option for you.
