We at the foot specialists understand how difficult it can be to take time away from the daily routine in order to take care of yourself and your feet. We make every effort to keep your time in the waiting room brief and attend to all your needs in an efficient manner.
We are often told by our patients that it's the little things that make the all the difference in how we provide care. One of the things they mention most often is the warm blankets and towels we provide for our patients. We all know how chilly it can get taking your shoes off in any doctor's office. The warm blankets and towels are provided to take the chill off and provide our patients with a comfortable environment.
