The mission of Foot Comfort Center is to provide diabetic patients with properly fitted footwear, as well as to educate diabetic patients on foot health. Unlike any “shoe store” you have ever experienced, your feet will be placed ‘in the hands’ of trained professionals. Foot Comfort Center is a leader in providing solutions that can offer immediate relief from painful foot conditions. People with diabetes might be eligible to receive therapeutic-diabetic shoes and inserts at NO COST*. Proper documentation from the doctor is required.
Foot Comfort Center first opened for business in April 2001, in the Northeast section of Philadelphia. What started out as a small local business has become a growing company with 8 centers spanning all across Philadelphia and Bucks County.
Foot Comfort Center is managed by a Board Certified Orthopedist, Sofya Tamarkin who is trained in both foot anatomy and shoe construction. Ms. Tamarkin is trained to utilize shoes, inserts, modification, etc., to solve problems related to feet. These skills can make a profound difference in the quality of people’s daily lives. Diabetics are at a higher risk for ulcers and amputation, due to a problem with circulation and/or sensation in their feet. Properly fitted diabetic shoes with molded inserts provide protection and may decrease chances of diabetic foot complications.
The goal of Foot Comfort Center is to provide diabetic patients with properly fitted footwear, as well as to educate its patients.
We recognize that there is a need for patients to be educated, understood and assisted in their native tongue. Many of our employees are bi- lingual, able to speak English, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian.
Each of our locations has a wide variety of shoes and sneakers to choose from. Our selection includes shoes in many different widths, colors, styles, and brands.
