Codes and Frequencies
For persons who reported at least one foot problem during the past 12 months, who still have the problem, and who got medical care for the problem during the past 12 months, PODTROTRDRV indicates the number of times the person saw another kind of medical doctor, besides a podiatrist, an orthopedic specialist, an osteopath, or a physical therapist for such care.
PODTROTRDRV was introduced in 1990 as part of the NHIS Podiatry Supplement.
