Job Description for Podiatrist

Simply put, a podiatrist is a foot doctor. He or she specializes in examining, diagnosing, and treating problems related to the feet of his or her patients. These can include problems like breaks and sprains, but they are more likely to be related to comfort issues, such as bunions, corns, and blistering. A podiatrist will typically examine a patient's problem, administer testing, and treat the problem. In some situations, the podiatrist may also refer a patient to an orthopedist for more extensive care.
