Footcraft Friday: Penguin Feet


At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

The perfect winter kid craft: a foot print penguin!As a Houston podiatrist, I commit, each and every year, to making sure that foot pain never keeps your kids’ growing feet  from the business of childhood: running, playing and having fun.

It's that goal that inspires me to share my weekly foot print craft with all of you: I love finding ways for you to capture those all-too-brief moments when our kids' little appendages are tiny. To cool off your summer and keep kids busy even if the heat is keeping you stuck inside, I'm sharing a perfect chilled-out craft this week that I found on Meet the Dubiens. If you try it out, please give us a glimpse of your sweet results on my Facebook page. Here's to a happy and calm end of summer vacation!
