In brief: Why not ask them?

For the most part, i believe they will defer to a podiatrist.
It is hard for a primary care doc to keep instruments for every type of scenerio. This is why we have specialists.

Podiatrists do it more often, though, so if you're able to, see the specialist.

However, a podiatrist does this day and day out.
I would highly recommend you see a podiatrist.
