Why You Should Visit A Podiatrist Regularly
Podiatry should be treated as a necessity rather than a luxury, especially if you have diabetic feet. Having regular check-ups means that you are taking preventative measures to reduce severe complications that often lead to amputation.
Our caring podiatrists will assess the level of risk to determine the frequency of your visits. Recommended visits of high-risk patients are usually every 3-6 months whereas low-risk patients are at least once a year.
