When to Seek Medical Care
It is important to see a doctor if you think you may have broken a bone in your foot. Go to an emergency department or urgent care center where X-rays can be performed.
For less severe injuries, your doctor may want to see you in the office. If you think you have broken your foot, and your doctor is not available by phone or is not calling you back, go to the emergency department to be examined.
Have someone bring you to the doctor or emergency department. Do not attempt to drive with a broken foot.
Go immediately to the nearest emergency department or call 911 if these conditions develop with a suspected broken foot:
