The corner-stone for the success of our patients is embedded in five pillars of philosophy that underpin everything we do at SA Podiatry Centre.
Your long-term health depends on the initial diagnosis. We take the time to diagnose your problem, so that we can prescribe the best and most evidence-based treatment for your problem. We also ensure we take the time to explain the diagnosis, the reasons for it and provide the opportunity for our patients to ask the questions they need to fully understand the problems they have.
The patient journey at SA Podiatry Centre is a long-term one. One that is designed to help them live a healthy and active life. We educate our patients as to the cause of their problem. We work with them to address the barriers impacting their health. We empower them to make the changes required. We provide state-of-the-art resources and facilities for our patients to use. And most importantly, we provide them the personal support they need to achieve the best possible outcome.
We take a team approach to our patient’s health. As your podiatrist, we work with you and your wider health team at every stage of your journey. Should you need additional care or advice, we collaborate with experts in every area of health to ensure our patients have the very best advice at hand. This results in the best outcome.
We think long-term. Our focus is not just on addressing the current problem, but what is required to prevent both the problem returning, or any new problems occurring in the future. This is what we call the foundation of good health. And with a good foundation, our patients live long and active lives.
Open, honest and transparent communication is required to achieve the best possible outcome. We take the time to ensure both our patients, as well as their wider health team, understand what their treatment plan involves, why we have prescribed it and what we are hoping to achieve. We regularly update the wider health team on our patient’s progress, ensuring that all stakeholders are aware of the pathway forward.
