What can people expect from you/ your services?
As no two issues are the same, every patient and pathology is evaluated, assessed and treated individually in a caring and compassionate manner. APVI believes that communication and patient education are key factors in understanding and treating ailments of the lower extremities, and we will work with you to the best of our ability in finding and eliminating the sources of your issues.
As an integrated podiatric and vascular institution, we proudly specialize in and focus on preventative treatment and limb salvage for at-risk populations, including the elderly and those with diabetes and cardiovascular disease. We are uniquely positioned to provide extensive vascular testing on-site, including ABI and PVR measurements, as well as arterial and venous ultrasounds, allowing us to cut down on time to treatment for patients that may require arterial or vascular intervention. If we are unable to provide a particular service, we will work with you to find an alternative provider.
What are the common processes you follow?
We provide a focused examination surrounding the presenting complaint, followed by a carefully thought and individually-based treatment plan. If it is indicated, we will evaluate the need for preventative treatment and vascular testing. Patients may elect to have vascular tests performed on the day of their visit, or may reschedule to have the exam at a later date, separate from visits related to their foot and ankle problems. The vascular tests may take anywhere from 20 minutes up to an hour.
What problems do you solve for people?
We provide patient evaluation, education and treatment for common to complex pathologies in order to eliminate acute and chronic causes of pain in the foot and ankle. Problems that may present in the office include but are not limited to pain related to forefoot or rearfoot deformities, fungal infections of the skin and nails, diabetic neuropathy and vascular pathology, sports injuries, and arthritis.
