A risk evaluation at our clinic examines you for signs of damage to the blood vessels and the nerves to your feet which are the most major concerns. We also screen you  for foot deformity, poor function, origins of any prior foot ulcers or infections and footwear problems. The outcome will categorize your risk level, make specific recommendations to reduce any risk factors and administer a comprehensive treatment plan for any active problems
