Diabetic/Therapeutic Footwear

Part of comprehensive diabetic care is taking care of your feet. Often times diabetic patients have decreased circulation and can be prone to potential foot problems that can lead to more serious complications. Our staff at Haag Pharmacy understand this concern and are dedicated to helping ensure you have happy and healthy feet!

We carry a full line of footwear and auxiliary supplies including diabetic socks and hosiery. Our pharmacy is equipped with a spacious private shoe fitting room to allow our staff to be 100% focused on you. Shoe fittings are done by appointment only so we may give your our uninterrupted time and attention.

Many times diabetic footwear and the appropriate insoles are covered by insurance including Medicare Part B. A prescription from your physician is required and certain medical qualifications may apply. Our staff can provide you with this information so you can visit with your physician about getting diabetic footwear at your next doctor’s appointment.

Debra Madsen is our certified fitter of therapeutic shoes as well as one of our certified pharmacy technicians. She is here to help you and can answer any of your footwear questions. Call her today to schedule your one-on-one private consultation and shoe fitting at (620) 342-1242 or email at dmadsen@haagpharmacy.com.
