Diabetic Foot Care is Essential!

Diabetic Foot Care is important and should not be neglected during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Diabetic foot care should not be neglected or put off at any time, especially now.

Any changes in the color of the toes, nails or feet should be evaluated as soon as possible. 

If you have any concerns, see your podiatrist as soon as possible. Dr. Saphire at Parkway Podiatry is available. Visit our website, or you can call for an appointment at 718-236-5253.
