    Q:Do you go to the hospital" R.I.H" or Ponderosa Lodge?

    A:Currently NO; due to 3 pages of consent,paperwork and getting a Doctor's order for footcare while under their care.

    Also, there is a much higher risk for infection in hospital/lodge due to clients being "not well enough to go home"  focusing on the " not well enough"

    Q:Why does it take a while to get a return call back?

    A:Currently I am the only person, so I have to wear all the hats (booking,scheduling,ordering,footcare, invoices/receipts, autoclaving/cleaning, and ........) I need to end my day at some point, that is why emailing me is a quicker way to connect with me.
