We’re here to help you with any questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
We are only in network for regular Medicare (not Medicare Advantage etc.) We are out of network for all other insurance networks. That means if you are a medicare patietn we do not accept any insurance for the 20% copay which must be paid our of pocket on the day the service is rendered.
We recommend that you talk to your employer or tax advisor for more information about this.
We will bill Medicare for the cost of your medical care. However you will be responsible for paying:
We provide medical care through our affiliated company, Complete pain Care, LLC. The provider that manages all of our Morton’s patients is not contracted with any health insurance company except Medicare and so is considered out of network.

Note: The Center for Morton’s Neuroma works together with Complete Pain Care to provide patients with specialized medical services for Morton’s Neuroma. The above forms that reference medical care are provided by Complete Pain Care.
Yes, we can organize a video or phone consultation for you and one of our staff doctors before you see her. However, it will cost $375 for a 45 minute consultation (either video or phone). We do not accept any insurance or third party payment for a consultation and this fee will need to be paid up front.
We do this because we generally discourage these types of consultations. We discourage consultations before coming in to see us for the following reasons:
If you still want a consultation with our one of our doctors before seeing us, please contact [email protected] with your request and we will contact you to organize it. It can be a video or phone consultation.
Yes, you are welcome to fax or post in your test results such as MRI or Ultrasound reports and your past medical history including the procedure notes from any past procedures that you may have had.
However, we will not look at any of these unless you are a current patient. The reasons for this are as follows:
You may want to tell us your history or share you tests with us in the hope that we will say: “Yes we can help you.” However, we are dealing with the human body and we cannot predict your outcome. If we prove that you have a Morton’s neuroma or Plantar Fasciitis, it is most likely that we can help you as we help the vast majority of our patients, but we cannot be sure of it and we cannot guarantee any outcome. Sharing your past tests or past medical history will not make us more likely to definitively say that we can help you.
As part of our medical service all patients are seen and treated by one of our doctors. If you send us your test results or past medical history, we will hold them for you and have them ready to use as part of ourdoctor’s full clinical assessment of you and your pain.
New patients must come in for an initial assessment. Based on the clinical findings and our physician’s assessment, a treatment plan is created together with the patient. In nearly all cases we perform a diagnostic injection to exclude Baxter’s Entrapment with the initial visit. Generally your Plantar Fasciitis procedure can then be performed the next day and you can travel (except flying) the same day as the procedure.
If the patient is known to us, we can do the procedure the same day without an initial assessment.
Most patients can travel the same day as our procedure and they usually can return to work the next day, if there work does not involve a lot of standing and walking.
We suggest mild activity for the first few days. Don’t try anything vigorous such as running or longer jogs for at least a couple of weeks. After that, depending on how your foot feels, you can ease back into it. Although rare, some people may experience soreness for up to 4-6 weeks.
Most podiatrists are trained in treating Plantar fasciitis. Some do cortisone injections (mostly without ultrasound guidance) and some may do other procedures.
We do not know of any podiatrist or any place that uses ultrasound guidance routinely to exclude Baxter’s entrapment and also offers such a wide range of treatments for plantar fasciitis, from simple ultrasound guided corticosteroid injections to shock wave treatment and ultrasound guided platelet rich plasma treatments.
We specialize in the treatment of Morton’s neuroma and Plantar Fasciitis.
