March Your Socks Off!

For the month of March, we are encouraging our patients to take off their socks when they visit their primary care doctor.

Your primary care doctor may sometimes miss looking at your feet when you are in their exam room. This is a missed opportunity to check for any problems with your feet. Especially if you are a diabetic, or at risk for diabetes.

If you are need of foot care, come see Dr. David Magnesen and Dr. Ryan Peterson for your foot care needs. Our doctors can offer both conservative and surgical options to help keep you healthy and moving!

So the next time you "March" into your doctors office take "your socks off", it might just save your feet!
