Foot pain linked to age and lifestyle

Feet have a tough job. On average, every mile a person walks places about 60 tons of stress on each foot.

COVID-19 Patient Information

Limited Operations Due to COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, we are limiting our operations to essential and emergent appointments only, and we hope to resume full operations in the next few weeks.

COVID-19 is causing things to change rapidly and our operations can vary because of this. We ask for your understanding and that you check our website for the latest information on operational hours and services.

Patient/Visitor Guideline Update

In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and provide a safer environment and promote social distancing which is recommended by the CDC, we are asking that patients limit the number of people accompanying them to an appointment to no more than one person. Additionally, we are respectfully asking that children not accompany any adult patients, unless there is a medical necessity. Thank you for understanding our need to do so and for helping us keep you and our greater community healthy.

We are also asking any patients with a cough, shortness of breath or fever to please wear a mask before entering our facilities. Hand washing, social distancing, and self-isolation are still the best ways to prevent this virus from spreading more widely. We are committed to providing the best care to you and will continue to give you the best guidance we can.
