  • What do I have to pay when I come in for my appointment?

    We collect all copays and outstanding deductibles at the time of service for patients with insurance. *(With the exception of Medicare patients with no secondary insurance.  We will collect 20% of all services.)  All cash pay patients are expected to pay in full at the time of service.  Any non-covered insurance services or products are also due at the time of service in full.

  • I’m an athlete, isn’t it normal to have pain after a workout?

    I’m an athlete, isn’t it normal to have pain after a workout?

    No pain should be considered “normal.”  A podiatrist can help you learn how to treat soreness, inflammation and clicking joints in order to prevent serious debilitation or joint replacement later in life.   

  • Why do people with diabetes need to see a podiatrist?
    People with diabetes have a weaker immune system and have a higher risk for developing infections. Fungal nails and foot infections can be easy to overlook, especially if the patient has neuropathy as a result of their diabetes. Neuropathy is a condition that causes burning, tingling or numbness in the feet. In this case, problems mild or severe can be completely undetected by a patient.
  • I have some minor pain, but I’m not sure if it’s a serious problem. Should I still make an appointment?
    Yes! Dr. Wawrzynek is happy to treat symptoms minor and severe alike. Coming in before pain becomes severe can only result in peace of mind or early detection.
