Do you or a loved one suffer from diabetes?
Diabetes can have a wide range of effects on the body. Ranging from eye problems, kidney problems to circulatory problems and nerve pain. It is very important to monitor your blood sugar and manage your diabetes properly to avoid complications.

The American Diabetes Association recommends an assessment every six months.

We offer a wide range of treatments for our diabetic patients, including diabetes management, neuropathy care, wound care and nail care.

Did you know that Medicare has special benefits for most diabetic patients?
For most diabetic patients, Medicare will cover nail trimming every nine weeks in our office.

Medicare will also cover one pair of diabetic shoes and personalized protective inserts per year. Fortunately, there are many stylish shoe options to choose from. Make sure to use your benefits before they expire.

If your loved one has diabetes, give us a call. Maricopa Foot and Ankle is open daily and we can often book same day appointments.
