Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do you participate with my insurance?

We participate with Medicare, BCBS PPO, BCBS Medicare PPO, and Tricare.  We accept patients with Aetna Medicare PPO, United Medicare PPO plans, and United, Cigna, and Aetna commercial plans.  We can run your benefits before your appointment and give you a estimated patient responsibility. 
As of 2022 we are unable to accept new patients with Humana Medicare PPO, United Medicare Dual complete plans, or QMB Medicare/Medicaid patients.

Do you accept Self Pay/Cash Pay patients?

Yes!  And our rates are extremely reasonable.  We can provide estimates based on initial complaints when your appointment is made.  We accept all credit cards, check, cash, and care credit.

Will I need surgery?

Most likely no!  The majority of foot and ankle conditions can be successfully managed with conservative care.  

If exhausting conservative fails surgical intervention can be considered. 


A good surgical candidate patient has adequate support at home, low risk of fall post op, good nutritional status, good blood flow to the feet, adequate immune system function, is a non-smoker, and has good control of systemic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.


If you are deemed a good surgical candidate Dr. Witfill will discuss the entire peri-operative course with you and answer all questions so that you fully understand the procedure and expected outcome and any potential adverse complications.  


Dr. Witfill has been in practice since 1999  has 20 + years of experience and is  board certified status by the American board of Podiatric surgery.

Can I get an appointment Today?

Sometimes yes!  If you are in extreme pain, are suffering from an acute injury or sudden condition causing pain and difficulty walking, have a severe infection, or are diabetic with any potential serious issue we will do our best to get you in that same day.  We do not see patients on Fridays however as that is surgery day.  In addition Dr. Witfill is the only physician in the practice and does take vacation so there may be times of the years where appointments can not be scheduled until a week out.  However Most other problems can be scheduled within a 1-4 day timeframe.
