The “Docs” at Hoosier Foot and Ankle, as podiatric professionals believe that informed patients are happy patients who work with us toward their recovery goals. We all work together to overcome foot pain and discomfort for you.
Toward that belief, we have an increasing resource of information in text and video available on the Hoosier Foot and Ankle website plus special sites for laser toenail fungus treatment, IndianaLaserToenailFungus.com and EPAT® therapy, IndianaShockwave.com. We have an extensive library of videos on YouTube, PADEHEER. We have a Facebook page for you to join and learn more, plus a Twitter page that you are welcome to follow. Our newest effort to keep you informed and in contact with us is an email newsletter.
When you have some understanding of what is going on, you are in a better position to share information with us about other treatment you have received or medications you are taking. You can share family history more comfortably because it has some connection that you now understand.
In the past, the opportunity for patients to become informed about their conditions and treatment was limited to the way the doctor explained things and whatever complicated medical books the patients could find. Worst case for information was gossip from uninformed people with overactive imaginations.
We are so glad we are able to make information available to you for your own research. We want to assure you that we are available and that we want your questions when you call or have an appointment. One of the most valuable things you can bring to the appointment is a list of questions so we can cut the risk of forgetting something you wonder about.
You have a 24/7 opportunity to ask questions at the YouTube Channel (PADeHeer), on the message option at all of the websites, in the comment area of any of the blog posts, on our Facebook page and our Twitter page. You can subscribe to the newsletter on the Hoosier Foot and Ankle website or by texting FOOTDOCS to 42828. The information circle is completed by a notification email that we receive from all of these sources telling us someone has contacted us.
You’re invited to visit our online information. Call 317-660-2115 for an appointment to get relief for your foot conditions or you may use the online appointment option available 24/7 for your convenience.
