    Hi, I'm a Physiotherapy resident. I'd like to give my honest review. I recently stumbled upon Michigan foot Doctors … More channel-hands down! it is one of the best that I found on YouTube! This channel is extremely informative and they drill deep into the causes and every possible management you can seek for a condition. If you don't want to miss a thing about your foot/ankle conditions and weigh between remedial options, you should definitely check them out!
    *Cheers

    This channel gives the best detailed info without the fluffy carry on- they get straight to each topic. The specifics are … More covered with authority. This is probably the best library of short and well detailed vids on topics covered in that they don't waste your time. I'm certainly a fan. Listen well because pretty much %100 of details are worth considering. I'd attend if I lived in their country. Cheers from Australia PS by the way my foot pain problems are improving even though I'm not as diligent as I should be because what they suggest actually is working. I just need to keep up the good work. Thanks Michigan Foot Doctors 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

    I have struggled with this excruciating pain on the absolute outside of my left foot for months. If only I'd have been … More in MICHIGAN a few months ago. Hmmmmm. I just saw this video last night, rolled my foot on a green plastic ball with the little spikes on it while watching these videos and then iced my foot.
    I woke up up this morning a new person! OMG! I'm mobile again and 10% pain now, which I really should say tenderness, because I pressed that ball deep in that meaty area you spoke of and I could feel the release of the tension. It felt like I had broken glass in my foot! Miracle.
    I will not be going back to my foot doctor. If I need one I will drive the 7 or 8 hours to Michigan.
    THANK YOU DOC!!!!

Frequently Asked Podiatrist Questions?

Q: What is a podiatrist?

A: Podiatrists are Doctors of Podiatric Medicine, DPM. Podiatrists are also known as podiatric physicians, foot doctors, or podiatric surgeons. Podiatrists often diagnose and treat the foot, ankle, and other related structures of the leg.

Podiatrists receive similar training that other doctors complete. They complete four years of training in a podiatric medical school and three years of hospital residency training.

The podiatrists at Prime Foot & Ankle Specialists have received extra training such as fellowships beyond residency and board certifications by the board of foot and ankle surgery and the board of podiatric medicine.

Q: Do podiatrists accept insurance?

Yes, podiatrists do except insurance. We set most major insurance plans as podiatrists and foot doctors. This includes Medicare, Medicare plus blue, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health, Aetna health. Humana, Blue Care Network, Oscar Health.

Q: Is podiatrist toenail trimming covered by insurance?

Yes, this service may be covered for people with help issues that cannot help themselves. If your foot is in pain or has a health issue, a podiatrist is recommended to evaluate you, and this is a covered option.

If you have foot pain, please call our office and schedule a no-obligation consultation with our podiatrists to assess your eligibility for foot care.

Q: Are podiatrist ingrown toenail removals covered by insurance?

Yes, ingrown toenails are covered by insurance. Don’t wait to come in if you have a toe infection or a foot infection. Let us help!

Q: What parts of the body do podiatrists treat?

A: Podiatrists in Michigan are licensed to treat the foot, ankle, and lower leg below the knee.

At Prime Foot & Ankle Specialists, we specialize in toenail problems, toe problems, foot problems, heel problems, ankle problems, minimally invasive surgery, advanced diagnostic techniques, and advanced treatment options. We pride ourselves on being your choice for all foot and ankle problems!

Q: When should I call a podiatrist for an appointment?

A: Pain is never normal, especially if it has been going on for longer than one week. This means that most insurance plans will cover a visit if you feel you have a problem developing with your feet.

The longer you wait, the more serious the pain may become. This can potentially lead to hospitalization or further foot problems.

It would help if you had it evaluated and treated to avoid long-term problems.

Q: Can podiatrists perform corn removal and callus removal?

A: Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin. Development of corn and callouses occur when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure.

The most common areas of development are on your feet and toes. If corns and calluses are causing you discomfort, you should seek treatment. We provide treatment for these somewhat unsightly painful conditions. Don’t hesitate to contact us today.

Q: Does insurance cover the podiatrist treatment of corns and calluses:

If you feel you have a foot problem that you cannot take care of on your own, and evaluation and diagnosis are covered. We provide a no-obligation consultation to let you know if this is the case for you. In general, foot pain and a painful lesion for the foot have covered the visit.

Q: What is a hammertoe?

A: A Hammertoe is a contracture (bending) of one or both joints of the second, third, fourth, or fifth toes.

We provide advanced imaging such as ultrasound and digital X-rays to diagnose immediately in the office. 

This abnormal bending can put pressure on the toe when wearing shoes, causing painful problems.

Conservative and surgical treatment options are available for the treatment of Hammertoes.

Q: What causes heel pain?

A: Typically, heel pain is not caused by one single incident or injury. The most common cause is plantar fasciitis, which can lead to long-term pain that may one day require surgical treatment if not corrected.

Repetitive stress/pounding of the heel can cause heel pain.

Other common causes can include inflammation of the plantar fascia, inflammation of the back of the heel, inflammation of the heel pad, progressive degeneration of the Achilles tendon, or a stress fracture caused by repetitive stress to the heel.

Q: What are orthotics or insoles?

A: Orthotics or insoles are custom foot supports that replace the over-the-counter supports that come in shoes you buy off the shelf at the store. These are designed to hug your foot more efficiently than over-the-counter products to significantly aid in balancing the biomechanical inadequacies of your feet and legs.

Q: How can you tell if you have an infected ingrown toenail?

A: You may have an infected ingrown toenail if there are any signs of redness, swelling, pain, and drainage, such as puss coming from the area.

  • If you notice any of these symptoms, contact your podiatric physician immediately.
  • If you have toenail pain, then this may be a sign as well. It is never normal to have toenail pain.
  • If you have toenail redness or toenail swelling, then this is never normal.

Q: What is plantar fasciitis?

A: The plantar fascia is the thick connective tissue on the bottom of the foot.

  • This tissue connects the heel bone to the toes. It is responsible for creating the arch in your foot.
  • Plantar Fascitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia.

Q: Does Medicare pay for diabetic shoes and custom orthotics?

A: Medicare will cover diabetic shoes and inserts with some patients.

  • Patients must meet and have specific qualifying conditions that must be verified by the Physician managing their diabetes.
  • If you have diabetes, you should have an annual foot evaluation performed by a foot doctor or podiatrist to determine if you are eligible for this benefit through Medicare and/or other insurance carriers.
