Diabetics are typically at high risk for foot problems. Diabetics will frequently suffer poor circulation, nerve problems, and foot deformities due to muscle weakness. Accordingly, we offer a comprehensive evaluation and maintenance program. Depending on your particular status, the diabetic patient will be seen every 2 months, 6 months or yearly.
