You may have heard that The Foot & Ankle Center is expanding! I’m sitting here in our brand new, beautiful, medical-grade nail spa.

The new spa is twice the size of our old spa. We’ve doubled the number of pedicure chairs, to four, which will make it much easier to get an appointment in our spa, which has been very busy.

Just like our previous spa, this new spa is medical grade, following the same rigorous sterilization practices as a hospital. Our cleanliness is what makes us different.

The truth is, most nail spas are notorious for being places where you can pick up germs or fungal infections. But, our medical-grade spa is so clean that doctors over at the hospital often refer patients to us who are diabetic or undergoing chemotherapy, because for them preventing infection is especially important.

If you liked our previous spa, we think you’re going to LOVE the new spa. Our nail technicians cannot wait to show it to you in person. If you’d like to make an appointment, give us a call at 804-320-FOOT, request an appointment online or contact us.

It may look like a mess right now, but soon this construction site will be our new, expanded clinic. This space is next door to our existing clinic, and we’re in the process of renovating it to double our space. What that means to our patients is:

  • We’ll have a larger, more comfortable lobby.
  • More patient exam rooms.
  • Lots more space for our custom shoe fitting area, where we also make custom orthotics or shoe inserts, and custom bracing.
  • We’ll also have a larger medical grade nail spa, with four pedicure chairs instead of two, so you’ll be able to come with a couple of friends and we’ll have room for all of you.

So, look for a whole new Foot & Ankle Center to open up this fall. With our enhanced patient services, there really will be nothing else like this in the Richmond area. Meanwhile, if you’ve got a foot problem or a question, give us a call at 804-320-FOOT, request an appointment or contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.

You may have heard that The Foot & Ankle Center is expanding! We're almost finished renovating the space next door to our clinic, which will give us a lot more room for enhanced patient services.

Part of this expansion includes a new, larger medical spa. We’ll be doubling the number of pedicure chairs, to four, and adding more nail techs. This will make it much easier to get an appointment in our spa, which has been very busy.

Just like our current spa, our new spa will be medical grade, following the same rigorous sterilization practices as a hospital. Our cleanliness is what makes us different. The truth is, most nail spas are notorious for being places where people pick up germs or fungal infections. But, our medical-grade spa is so clean that doctors over at the hospital often refer patients to us who are diabetic or undergoing chemotherapy, because for them preventing infection is especially important.

We’re looking forward to welcoming more clients to our new, expanded spa, which will be opening soon. In the mean time, if you’d like to make an appointment, give us a call at 804-320-FOOT, request an appointment online or contact us.
