Ischemic foot is inadequate arterial blood flow from the heart to the foot that can occur from arterial blockages, arterial spasms, and injury to the artery. Since blood flow is restricted to the foot, symptoms include cold feet, purplish or discolored toes, muscle cramping, and pain. Ulcers and gangrene can result from the lack of blood to the area. Treatment for ischemic foot involves exercises that increase blood flow to the feet, such as walking; orthotics and protective shoes can protect the affected skin from damage caused by rubbing or irritation. Medications may be prescribed to improve blood flow (always consult with a doctor before taking any medication).
Wonderful care. Great staff, helpful and efficient. Dr. Stevens got me healed up and back to work.
No matter what day or time of my appointment, I find the entire staff, pleasant, cordial and helpful — also, there are no long waits for appointments — usually quite prompt from the time of the appointment to the time I am brought to the examining room.
I especially appreciate the friendly, respectful reception by the staff and the on-time care and attention to small (and big) problems provided by Dr. Stevens.
Very friendly doctor and office staff, they go out of their way to help schedule an appointment with you.
Very nice and polite!!! They make sure that you’re treated the right way.
