About Me
Talking About Podiatrists

Hi there, I’m Samantha Duggar. Welcome to my site. As a dancer, I have to keep my podiatrist on speed dial. Bunions, blisters and broken toes are the name of the game while dancing your heart out on stage. Since the adrenaline produced during the performance masks the pain, I often cause extensive damage before noticing the problem. My podiatrist helps me minimize the pain and heal quickly so I can return to the stage as soon as possible. Please use the information on my site to help keep your feet healthy with regular visits to your podiatrist. Thanks for visiting.
