Helping patients put their best foot forward!
Many chronic diseases have long-term effects on the patient’s feet and ankles that require the services of a specialist. MVHC has a podiatrist on staff that is able to provide health care specifically for the foot and ankle. Our podiatrist treats a variety of persistent or sudden onset problems involving the foot, ankle, and leg abnormalities and conditions that may be unresponsive to treatment from a primary care provider.
These include problems such as:
- Plantar warts
- Ingrown toenails
- Heel pain
In addition, our podiatrist works with the primary care team to provide education and treatment for chronic conditions such as diabetes, that requires specialized foot care in order to prevent possible infections from even the most minor procedure such as clipping their nails.
