Dr. Comfort™ Therapeutic Shoes for Diabetes Patients

If you have diabetes, then you probably already know how important proper foot care is. People with diabetes have an increased risk of serious foot complications (such as ulcers and sores) that are often caused by shoes that don't fit properly. In some cases, these kinds of foot problems can cause infection and lead to possible amputation. In fact, they are the most common diabetes complications requiring hospitalization. You can reduce the risk of foot complications with professionally fitted shoes made specifically for persons with diabetes.

At Independent Drug, our staff is trained to perform in-store fittings for Dr. Comfort therapeutic shoes. These shoes are an important preventive measure you can take to help avoid foot complications, so you can maintain a more independent, active lifestyle. Dr. Comfort therapeutic shoes and insoles are a great step toward better foot health. One pair of therapeutic shoes and three pairs of personally molded orthotic shoe inserts (to be charged throughout the year) are usually covered by Medicare A and B. You will likely have no out-of-pocket expense, if you have Medicare A and B primary and Medigap or supplemental Medicare insurance. We can also take care of all the billing paperwork for you. Learn more by calling us at (410) 687-1115.


NEW! EZ-Pack Convenience Pill Packaging System

No more wondering whether you took your pills! Our EZ-Pack pill storage system organizes all your daily medications into an easy-to-use weekly or monthly package. It is sealed at the pharmacy to ensure that your medications do not spill out or get mixed up. Ask about it in the store, or give us a call!
