My appointment was for 9. 00am and I was called in to the podiatry Department exactly on time. The waiting room was extremely busy.
I was shown into the treatment room by a very efficient young lady who made me feel at ease right away. The young lady asked what my problems were with my feet. She then took details of all my medication and my current and previous illnesses. All this information was input on the computer.
When this was finished the young lady began to treat my feet, very gently but firmly and professionally.
Some years ago I had an embolism in my femeral artery in my left groin and sometimes my left foot is cold. This worried the young lady as she was finding it difficult to find a pulse in my foot, explaining she was going for some equipment to mechanically check my pulse and would be out of the room a few minutes she went. On her return she tested my pulse with the machine and to her relief and mine found my pulse.
After treating my feet and giving me some good advice I was given an appointment slip to make a further appointment 10 weeks hence.
I was then directed back to the waiting room.
I found my visit to the Podiatry department to be a very professional and pleasant experience. I never got the young lady's name but I would like to say thank you very much to her.
