We are excited to announce that we will soon be offering manicures and pedicures in our office. We get the question daily, "where can I get a safe pedicure?" Now we have the answer! Our office will be using a pedicure station that has disposable liners so you will never share a foot tub with anyone else again. We will also be medically sterilizing all of our instruments. Perfect for current patients of ours or anyone who comes to Saint Thomas Hospital, works at the hospital, lives nearby, has a friend of family member at the hospital for a procedure or stay, and/or is just insistent on a good, clean pedicure.
Keep in touch and make your appointment soon!
