I am a registered nurse certified as a foot care nurse through the American Foot Care Nurses Association (AFCNA). I fill the gap left by podiatrists by performing routine services or attending to homebound patients.
I work with a team of health care professionals such as primary care providers, podiatrists, pedorthists, etc. to help keep a person mobile and decrease their risk of developing foot ulcers.
I also have experience with spinal cord injuries and geriatric care, so feel free to discuss any specific concerns you or those you care for have.
Nurse Dianne, RN, CFCS
Certified Foot Care Specialist
American Foot Care Nurses Association
I have been a pedicurist for over 20 years before becoming a registered nurse. While I worked at the Carolina Medical Center (CMC) Main campus in Charlotte I tended to many patients who had had foot or toe amputations that could have been easily prevented. Since then, I have decided to specialize in foot care and start TheraTouch Foot Care.
As a foot care nurse, my mission is to help keep people mobile through providing routine foot care and education for uncomfortable, painful, and potentially dangerous foot and nail conditions. Anything from thick, misshaped nails to diabetic feet can benefit from this service.
