Foot Infections Consultation
Specialty Physician Consultation – 1-hour examination and assessment with related review and treatment recommendations.
Infections of the foot typically follow a traumatic event or tissue loss with contamination by foreign materials and/or colonization by bacteria. When a healthy patient or one without the metabolic or peripheral vascular disease (PVD) presents with pedal infections a traumatic process usually is involved. The more common presentation is that of a patient whose health is compromised with a metabolic or peripheral vascular defect that complicates optimal successful infection treatment.
The foot infections consultation cost includes a one-hour consultation with a specialist. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
