She is mostly experienced with older adults and related foot problems including nail and skin care, wound management, vascular and neurological problems, and orthotics use. She really believes that ‘prevention is better than cure’ since most of the above problems can be prevented if due care is given. Furthermore, most of her patients are individuals with diabetes mellitus. Unfortunately, most of these patients suffer from foot problems and it is a must for them to undergo a yearly foot examination.
