Foot Doctors: A Better Option than the Emergency Room for Foot and Ankle Injuries

If you’ve injured your foot or ankle, your best option is to visit a podiatrist immediately. Often times, people choose to visit the emergency room or urgent care center first, only to find out they should have visited an urgent care foot and ankle doctor instead. Urgent care injuries such as sprains, smashed toes, fractures, and pain in the feet or ankles can be treated onsite by one of our skilled podiatrists the same day. When your injury is in need of urgent or immediate care, we can consult and often treat  you the same day - walk ins are welcome. We can, many times, get you in much sooner than the emergency room or urgent care center could.

  • Save time by visiting a podiatrist first, skipping the wait of an ER or Urgent Care clinic
  • Onsite local x-ray and surgery center ensures we can diagnose and treat your condition promptly and correctly the first time
  • Durable medical equipment available, saving a separate trip to a medical supplier
  • Save money by skipping the costly emergency room

If you’ve injured your foot or ankle on the job, we can help with your worker’s compensation injury. Our staff is trained to diagnose your work related foot injury, and provide treatment to get you back and healthy as soon as possible. Worker's compensation injuries to the foot and ankle require immediate attention, are our staff and facilities are ready to provide diagnosis and treatment right away.

Here at Dr. Jeffrey J. Betman and Associates, we can take in-office x-rays that can be produced and interpreted by the doctor immediately. At the ER you would most likely have a long wait, and often times, will need a second set of x rays once you visit a specialist. We can treat your pain symptoms immediately, and begin diagnosis on your injury.

We also offer diagnostic ultrasound, fluoroscopy, and have a Joint Commission Accredited Surgical Facility on-site at our Belmont location. We are able to provide you with foot and ankle durable medical equipment, such as walking boots, surgical shoes, crutches, and braces onsite, saving you a trip to an orthopedic medical supplier.

Lastly, trips to the ER can be very costly - save yourself time and money by visiting an urgent care foot and ankle doctor. Here at Dr. Jeffrey J. Betman and Associates we are equipped to handle your emergency and urgent care foot and ankle injuries and needs. Give us a call at one of our 3 locations, and we will be more than happy to get you in, with minimal wait time, during our normal business hours. Our 24-hour answering service is available to receive any inquiries you may have.
