Having Podiatric Issues Over the Weekend or After Hours? Call Us First!

The main reason so many emergency room visits are for non-urgent care is that ERs are required by federal law to provide care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Since they can’t be turned away, patients without insurance often utilize emergency rooms as their main health care provider, even though they're the most costly place to receive care. This puts tremendous strain on ERs and limits their ability to attend quickly to health emergencies.

This is where our physicians come in—all three of our podiatrists are here to help you by offering an on-call service for issues that arise after-hours and on the weekends.

So before you head to the Emergency Room or Urgent Care for a sprain, strain, fracture, or infection, call our office first at (248)348-5300. If our office is closed, press option 2 to be transferred to the on-call physician. Often we’re able to get you in immediately for a consult with one of our podiatrists or advise you on how to properly care for your injury until you’re able to come in for an appointment.

Our goal is always to provide top-of-the-line podiatric care to all our patients and since our specialty is the foot and ankle, we’re hoping to save our patients time and money by cutting out the middleman and treating the issue first-hand.
