Your first visit establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During your first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, your medical history, and a podiatric history. Following a physical examination, Dr. Mussett will develop a treatment plan and answer your questions.
At The Ankle & Foot Clinic of Erie, we believe our patients deserve to have the information needed to make good choices about their foot and ankle care. Our goal is to educate each patient and begin a relevant treatment program with the highest quality of care available. As you navigate through our website you will find practical information that you will need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies, and our first visit procedures. Whatever your foot and ankle trouble, we’ll work together to find the answers that will comfort you and bring you relief.
Preparing for Your First Visit
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that Dr. Mussett has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care. Please bring knowledge of your past medical, surgical, and family histories, current lists of medications you take, and the doctors you currently see.
All new patients are asked to complete medical history and patient registration forms. A current driver’s license and insurance card will also be required. We ask that all new patients arrive a minimum of 20 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment in order to complete the registration process. Patients who have already completed the registration forms (by accessing them through our website or by picking them up at our office) need only arrive 10 minutes prior to their scheduled time. We look forward to meeting you on your first visit.
To save time at patient check in, you may print and fill out the patient forms below prior to your initial visit.
Foot problems can be caused by disease, injury or poorly fitting shoes. When you have foot pain, recognizing the cause and knowing some simple self-help techniques can ease discomfort and prevent further problems.
