needs your doctor’s expertise

What to expect from your appointment

Your doctor may do one or all of the following:

  • Thoroughly inspect all your toenails for the signs of toenail fungus
  • Take nail clippings and a sample of the debris from under the nail so they can be tested for toenail fungus
  • In some cases, your doctor may refer you to a specialist, like a podiatrist, chiropodist, or footcare nurse for treatment
