Professional Nail Care

What is Professional Nail Care?

Dr. David C. Scherer, D.P.M., P.A. first exams the patient’s nails to determine the best course of action. If the toenails are too long, he will trim them down to a safe and satisfactory length. He may also thin out any excessive thickness to the nails. Professional nail care also includes the removal of corns and calluses. If the doctor notices any fungus on the nail, he may provide the patient with our in-house anti-fungus oil.

How often should I schedule nail care?

Every 8 weeks or based on the need of the patient. 

Why is it necessary?

In many cases, as a result of the aging process, we find bending to reach our toes a difficult task. The nails begin to grow out of control and may even curl under the toes. Unfortunately, this limits our ability to walk and be mobile. If this were to happen, the best solution is to see a trained medical professional who can safely trim your nails.

Will my insurance cover the visit?

Professional Nail Care is typically covered by most insurances. Please call our office to learn if you accept your insurance.
