Should I visit an urgent care near me for foot pain?
When it comes to nearly every kind of foot or ankle problem, it is always better to see a specialist who can diagnose the problem from an expert’s perspective. Doctors at urgent care centers are generalists, meaning they are a jack of all trades, master of none – you generally will not find an expert in any one field when it comes to urgent care.
Why should I see a specialist?
When you receive podiatric care from a general urgent care doctor there are many associated risks. Misdiagnosis can lead to an unfavorable healing outcome and possibly cause permanent damage that could have otherwise been avoided under specialized care. An urgent care doctor will also unlikely be able to identify the root cause of the problem, meaning they will treat the symptom but not the cause.

Foot pain tips while you wait for your appointment
It’s likely that you’re searching for an urgent care location based on the immediate pain associated with a foot or ankle problem or injury. Due to the complicated and delicate nature of podiatric care, we highly recommend waiting until you can visit us at our Corona location. Here are some tips on caring for the problem area before you visit us:
- Ice the problem area or injury to reduce swelling while you wait. Leave ice on the affected area no longer than 20 minutes.
- Elevate the area.
- Take over-the-counter medicine that you would normally use for a headache as recommended by your physician. ***If you are unable to take over the counter pain medication due to an underlying health condition then skip this step.
