Dr. Patricia Schultz DPM aids a variety of foot conditions; your first visit establishes a key part in our relationship with you. Upon entry, we obtain the relevant background information and medical history. Once evaluated, the patient may be offered a whirlpool bath as a component of care, there is no extra charge. This time-honored care boosts hygiene, and softens hardened skin and nails. Corrective foot devices are implemented as needed including custom-designed/custom-made functional foot orthoses, pre-fabricated shoe inserts, a variety of arch supports, splints, and shoe modifications. Digital X-Rays are taken as necessary to check for any breaks in the bone, fractures, or misalignments.
