Welcome to Instep Podiatry!

Instep Podiatry hopes that all of you are healthy. We want you to know that in these difficult times, we are here for you. We are taking steps to insure that our patients are safe. We established call back lists for those patients who are high risk. For those patients coming to the office, we are seeing patients one at a time, with no one in the waiting room. We are also sanitizing rooms between patients. We also offer Tele-medicine for certain cases. Call 630-462-1470 for more information.
