Taking care of your feet is very important. Your feet have taken a lot of abuse over the years, and add in a diagnosis of diabetes, poor circulation, or improper nail care and you could end up with serious problems. Having your feet checked regularly will address any issues that may be present. This may not be easy for all people to go to a podiatrist regularly, so our nurses have the tools and training to come to you.
Our nurses have been specifically trained to provide foot care and will assess your feet for any problems and care that is needed. They will work with you to address your concerns and develop an on-going plan to keep your feet healthy.
