I am the medical professional who will be treating the foot problems that plague people suffering from diabetes or those who are showing indications of pre-diabetes.
I am dedicated to caring for feet — that includes counseling patients to observe the recommended lifestyle changes and following the directions of their medical professionals who deal with the diabetes issues. And encouraging them to consult with these physicians about new or different treatment options.
