Our mission is to provide quality affordable foot care house calls in Montgomery and surrounding counties. Dr. Hylinski is a recently retired (2014) podiatrist and foot surgeon who is returning to practice to fill the need for quality affordable foot care at home.
This is accomplished by combining almost 40 years of foot care experience; surgical sterility and affordable pricing. We are able to do this by eliminating the middleman – the insurance companies. We accept no insurances (even Medicare) and our fees are payable in only cash, check or credit card. Our goal was to be able to charge less than $100. per house call (it is now $85). Our target audience is not only the patients who are unable to care for their feet and can’t get into the office but also the sons, daughters, nieces and nephews who would have to take a 1/2 day or full day off from work just to bring your loved ones in the office.
When I was in full time practice I had to stop making house calls, even for those who needed it, due to time considerations. Actually, foot & nail care is not covered by most insurances companies unless you have diabetes, peripheral neuropathy (pain or numbness) or peripheral vascular disease (poor circulation).
If you are able to get in to see your foot doctor and use your insurance by all means go in and use it, but if the convenience of staying in your home is important and you need foot care – we are for you.
