Quality of Care

Podiatry plays a vital role in the care continuum and involves the treatment of all conditions affecting patients below the knee. Proactive follow up exams for the lower extremities improves the health and mobility of residents in assisted living, to include reducing the risk of in-home falls and acquired infections.

Improve the quality of life

Remove the burden of appointments and the cost of transporting patients

While regular podiatry exams are necessary for seniors to maintain a high quality of life, those in long-term care often have difficulty traveling to regular appointments. To answer this challenge, KG Health Partners’ physicians schedule weekly and biweekly appointments at the patient’s facility. During every appointment, our physicians will:

  • Provide necessary treatment for preventing wounds and infections.
  • Offer personalized, expert recommendations for maintaining optimum health.
  • Treat infections or wounds that may become infected.
  • Work to build and maintain the trust of every patient.
