BAY AREA FOOT & LASER PODIATRY GROUP
Sometimes, patients who see us for the first time walk in with new X-rays. This may happen if a referring doctor is unaware of our services and sends a patient to an imaging center instead. Knowing that we provide in-office X-ray services saves you time and the inconvenience of making an extra trip to get them done elsewhere.
Why X-rays are Important
X-rays can help us find the cause of your symptoms. We use them to diagnose things like arthritis, broken bones, deformities, dislocated joints, and cancer.
Here’s a good example. In this urgent trauma case, Dr. Jonathan Huey was able to examine the X-ray of a patient’s fourth toe and therefore, determine the extent of the injury. These side-by-side images compare the toe before and after the bone was reset by Dr. Huey.
