Anyone interested in diabetic shoes must schedule a shoe fitting appointment with our Certified Pedorthist. You must have a letter from your primary care physician stating that you are currently being treated for diabetes. You must also have a prescription from a physician for the diabetic shoes.  During this appointment, our Certified Pedorthist will evaluate your foot type and shoe needs and help you choose the best shoe for you. Often, you will be able to take the shoes home with you that day.  For some, shoes may have to be ordered and often arrive in a just a few days.

If you are not diabetic, but need help finding the right shoe, we suggest making an appointment with our staff for a more personal shoe fitting. Appointments are recommended. Please feel free to stop by and browse our selections.

Business Team

Welcome to the Business Team at Foot and Ankle Associates of North Texas. Our appointment schedulers and billing department work in tandem to assist you and your family during your FAANT experience.
Our scheduling team will complete a short appointment questionnaire that will allow us the opportunity to contact your plan prior to your visit. We will find out what type of Podiatry benefits you should expect, including your coverage limits, which we will then review with you before you are seen.
If you are a new patient, we ask that you complete our online patient forms. We also update paperwork for established patients at least once a year or upon any changes. Having the most accurate information on you and your family will help us better treat your medical conditions, and it will also allow us to process your insurance claims more efficiently.
Thank you for helping us to be more prepared for your visit. Please download our online patient forms and fax them to our confidential fax at least 48 hours prior to your visit at 817-886-3612. We ask that you arrive 20 minutes prior to your visit with your insurance and identification cards; we will scan each card to validate your electronic health record. Please allow for ample time to check in with our team in order to help prevent your appointment being delayed or even rescheduled.
We invite you to bring your socks and athletic/dress shoes along with a list of prepared questions.
