What to Eat Wednesday: Raising Awareness

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

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.

Diabetic friendly dinners can be healthy AND delicious!Welcome to American Diabetes awareness month! As a Houston podiatrist, I’ve seen first hand the toll this disease can take on your feet, and I’ve made it my mission to help people stay on top of their diabetic health through regular foot exams and healthy eating.

Throughout November, in addition to weekly diabetic recipes, I’ll also be sharing important diabetes information you need to know to stay healthy. To kick things off, let’s all try this delicious Roasted Chicken recipe from the American Diabetes Association. Enjoy!
