PacMed Podiatry – First Hill
The human foot contains one fourth of all the bones in your body, so it can take a beating over time. Patients visit our podiatry team for treatment of conditions ranging from fractures to deformities. Those suffering from pain caused by arthritis, tendonitis, and diabetic foot wounds are also good candidates for podiatry.
Patient education is our strong focus, which may involve instruction on orthotics, braces, supportive shoes and foot care, and even surgery if needed. We also offer diabetic foot exams.

CHECK YOUR COVERAGE
To avoid financial surprises, we recommend calling your insurance before your visit to check your coverage for:
- Pacific Medical Centers
- The provider you’re seeing

It’s good to ask your insurance whether our clinic and provider are in network and what your financial responsibility might be.
