Foot Care Clinic

Our Foot Care Clinic has Registered Nurses who specialize in preventive foot care. Our nurses perform routine foot assessments involving foot inspection and nail trimming. During the foot inspection the nurses are looking for color changes, foot/ankle swelling, temperature changes, decreased sensation, cracks in the skin, bone formations, calluses, ulcers and ingrown toenails. We work collaboratively with  your primary care provider.

Learn more about Foot Care from one of our nurses in our Diabetes & Foot Care presentation (Powerpoint file).
