Happy Feet

  • WE TEST CIRCULATION AND NERVES IN YOUR FEET as part of our comprehensive care for the whole body, especially with diabetes, to minimize future problems of ulcers, amputations, etc.
  • To help find out those who need testing to identify such problems early on, we ask our diabetic and elderly patients to answer a few simple questions during the visit.
  • If the answers to these question suggest a need for testing, we will arrange for it.
