What will happen on my visits for Anodyne Treatment with New Age Foot & Ankle Surgery?
Once you have been in the office for an exam and evaluation with one of our doctors, David Sappington, DPM, Asif Shah, DPM or Aerial Avery, DPM and Anodyne Therapy is the treatment of choice, you will come to the office 2-3 times per week for treatments that last 30 minutes each. The assistant will strap the Infra Red pads to the location pre-determined by the doctor & you sit there for the treatment. We have TV’s with DVD players in every room for your enjoyment as well as reading a magazine, a book or we can turn off the lights and you can take a nap, it’s all up to you.
Each month you will have one exam by the doctor to determine the success level and re-evaluate your progress. Depending on the treatment plan, you may be doing this for 3-4 months, sometime during these months you may be eligible for a home unit. What is the cost for Anodyne Therapy? All patients will have a $10 payment at time services are rendered in the office and when an exam is scheduled, you will have the $10 for treatment & your regular copay & co-insurance amount for the exam. Home units are sold by the Anodyne Company & New Age Foot & Ankle Surgery , LLC is not associated with this company nor do we profit in anyway on the sale of a unit. We will give you all the information needed to contact them and purchase the home unit. Home units are not covered by any insurance company at this time.
