Additional Information

Prescription Refills

Please contact us at least 48 hours before you need to have prescriptions refilled. We do not refill narcotic pain medication prescriptions on Fridays, with the exception of post-operative patients.

Appointment Policy

If you are unable to make your appointment, 24-hour advance notice is appreciated whenever possible. This allows us to open up that time for another patient needing care.


In an extreme emergency, such as loss of consciousness, chest pain, severe breathing problems, or major bleeding, call your emergency service number (usually 911) first. Do not delay emergency care by calling our office or the hospital. Afterward, if necessary, call your physician for further advice and coordination of your emergency care.

Sports Medicine Clinic

The medical practice offers a weekly morning sports medicine clinic on Thursdays starting at 8:45 a.m. for individuals of all ages who suffer from a sports-related injury. Clinicians include Dr. Thomas Pulling, a licensed physical therapist, and certified athletic trainer.

Our podiatrist, Dr. Zachary Blakeman is experienced in non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures and offers a comprehensive physical examination of your lower leg and foot. He evaluates your condition, reviews your medical history, determines your goals for recovery, and discusses treatment options with you.


Dr. Blakeman treats patients with a wide range of foot and ankle challenges. His services include:

  • Treatment of soft tissue and bony surgeries of the foot and ankle
  • Treatment of plantar fasciitis and related conditions
  • Bunion and hammertoe surgery
  • Foot and ankle reconstruction and revision surgery
  • Podiatric sports medicine;
  • Non-diabetic and diabetic foot care
  • Podiatric wound care
  • Cutting corns, calluses, or nails if you are unable to do so safely

You should see a podiatrist if you find any cuts or ingrown nails, or if you notice pain, loss of sensation, or a change in shape or color in your feet.


A podiatrist can also provide you with special shoes that can provide a safe and comfortable fit if your feet change shape.
