I’ve recently been to a Podiatrist who had testimonials up on their site thinking that I would soon become one of those satisfied patients, but the Podiatrist wasn’t successful in treating my problem, what should I look for in a Podiatrist in future?
For a Podiatrist , advertising testimonials on a Podiatrist site or in any other medium is against the law. According to the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009 a person should not advertise a regulated health service, or a business that provides a regulated health service, in a way that – uses testimonials or purported testimonials about the service or business.
If you find a Podiatrist t that advertises Testimonials you can complain to the Australian Health Practioner Regulation Agency at www.ahpra.gov.au. Testimonials from a health professional can be misleading and not directly relevant to your individual problem.Podiatrist who do so are at risk of losing their registration, you should always seek personal physical diagnosis and treatment from a qualified Podiatrist.
