Good foot health care is
relatively inexpensive. We know routine servicing of an automobile helps
prevent more costly major repairs. We know regular dental checkups help
prevent more costly extractions, caps, and fillings. So too can regular
examinations of your feet help prevent more costly surgical corrections
When such treatment is needed, the services provided by Doctors of Podiatric Medicine
(podiatrists) are a part of the benefit package under Blue Cross/Blue
Shield, Medicare, Medicaid, and most private health insurance programs.
Most policies allow for
podiatric treatment of injuries, such as lacerations, fractures, and
sprains; for corrective surgery including ingrown nails, bunions, and
hammer toes; for infections and diseases that affect the foot such as
arthritis, bursitis, and diabetic ulcers; and for x-rays, laboratory
tests and physical therapy.
The Doctor of Podiatric Medicine cares for feet as a specialty, not a sideline, and is trained
and experienced in treating all problems of the foot, ankle and lower
Our professional staff is committed to providing quality, affordable foot-care services
