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).

Some insurances cover nail trimming. We recommend you check with your insurance company for more information. If your insurance does not cover this service, you may still receive the service for an out-of-pocket fee.
You need to schedule an appointment to visit the Foot Care Clinic. Once established with the clinic and you choose to return, you will be scheduled every 8-12 weeks for routine care.
