Have you seen the new reality show on TLC called “My Feet are Killing Me?”

They chronicle the story of three patients with significant foot problems as they find solutions and relief.

A recent episode showed a gal with six toes who was having pain from her shoes rubbing, a gal with a severe scar on the bottom of her foot, and a guy with diabetes who had several problems from neglecting his feet.

This is truly REALITY television.

We see conditions like these often (well, maybe not six toes too often).

What’s unfortunate is that many people consult with doctors and other healthcare providers before finally seeing specialists like us.

We remain puzzled by this.

Because here’s the thing…

Feet are so unique that seeing anyone other than a specialist is like taking the long road to a destination.

We often hear our patients say, “I should have come to you in the first place.”

As a guest of our practice, you likely already know this.

If you want to help a friend or coworker avoid unnecessary long-term suffering from a foot concern, let them know how important it is to see a specialist.

We don’t want one of them ending up on a reality TV show.

Also, don’t let a foot pain of your own go unchecked for too long.

We are here to serve you and your friends. Thank you for placing your trust in us.

To Healthy Feet,
Dr. Betschart
