It is our goal with this blog to bring you the latest information about a variety of foot conditions.  We want to be your resource so that when you go to a Podiatrist, you are ready to be a partner in your healthcare.  This is not meant as a place to find a diagnosis for your foot problems.  This is just a guide – it could never replace a visit to your local Podiatrist. 
We want to hear from you also!  If you have questions, we will try our best to help you.  Please either post your questions below or ask on Facebook (don’t forget to “like” us!) or on Twitter at #EVPodiatric. 
We have decided to end each post with a trivia question – just for you to play along.  So enjoy and have a great day.
Trivia Question:  Q: What is the name of the process by which green plants convert the energy of sunlight into chemical energy?
Find the answer on our Facebook page – Evanston Podiatric Surgeons – on Friday, August 3.  While you’re there, please take a moment to “like” us.

Follow us on twitter – EvPodiatric and the answer will be tweeted on Friday morning.
