As a diabetic, it is important to be evaluated by your doctor to see if you would benefit from diabetic shoes. After that first step, Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic doctors will write a prescription for you to go to a certified pedorthist.  This helps to make sure that the shoes we prescribe will actually perform its intended purpose: to prevent diabetic foot sores and complications in foot.  If the shoe doesn't fit well,  it may cause undue rubbing or irritation and may cause discomfort or even a sore.  Each foot will be sized separately with a Brannock device that will also determine your foot width.  Sometimes patients are surprised when they find that after they are measured, they have actually been wearing a size or two smaller and narrower than they should.  No wonder it's so hard to find comfortable shoes! Make an appointment with our doctors and we can start the process to help you as a patient benefit from this service.
