I have foot molds - where to get orthotics?

My dog chewed my orthotics and my podiatrist charges absurd fees for replacements $400. I live in Los Angeles - any idea where I can get a new pair using my old molds?

Re: I have foot molds - where to get orthotics?

I tried calling around to several podiatrist and orthotist when I needed adjustments to orthotics I had made in a different state and was told by all of them that they would be happy to have me come in and have new molds taken and new orthodics made, but that they would not touch another physicians orthotics or use someone else's molds. Just sharing my experience, hopefully you will have a better experience or at least find the industry more helpful where you live.
