Foot and Nail Care
Foot and Nail Care services meet both routine and advanced foot care needs of patients in Burnett and neighboring counties.
A patient's first session will last one hour, and returning appointments, typically scheduled every 8 weeks will last 45 minutes. At each visit, patients can receive a foot soak; clipping and debriding of nails; care of thick nails, calluses, and corns; and a moisturizing treatment.
During the appointment, if more serious issues are identified requiring further attention, such as ingrown toenails, ulcerations, or infection in the nails or feet, patients can be referred to one of the Podiatry Specialists from Maplewood Podiatry who visit BMC every Friday, or one of BMC's Family Practice Providers. "We are delighted BMC is offering this service to patients," said Dr. Vincent Simone, visiting Podiatrist. "We look forward to the opportunity to offer our expertise in addressing more advanced foot care issues that may arise." With a full team of foot care experts, BMC is excited to provide this important service to our community."
Foot and nail care services are provided by Ann Nelson, RN, and Nancy Severson-Dickinson, LPN. The services are offered Monday afternoons, Friday mornings, and all day Wednesday at BMC for a fee of $25 per session. Insurance will not be billed for services; payment by cash, check, or credit card will be due at the time of service.
