Oh my Heart!

With a new little one, the tests, forms and information are abundant. Family Practice with Obstetrics Physician Dr. Shawn Richmond knows this all too well! One test that all of his little patients receive is a pulse oximetry to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. Sounds big but it’s actually quite small. The test uses little sticky monitors (think of a band-aid), that are applied to a baby’s foot and hand. Don’t worry, this test is totally painless, but provides insight on their health, often before any signs and symptoms could be noticed. Pretty neat huh?

Podiatry

podiatry

Podiatry is the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. What happens if you break your toe Beacon? Have you been suffering from an ingrown toenail in Eddyville? Fractured your foot in Fremont? Or, perhaps you‘re experiencing diabetes-related neuropathy right here in Oskaloosa. In fact, podiatrists can even detect early signs of diabetes. If you’re at risk of developing diabetes, consider scheduling a checkup for your feet with Dr. Mark Beers, DPM.

After 20 years of private practice in Oskaloosa, Dr. Beers joined the MHP Medical Group in 2011. Dr. Beers focuses on providing comprehensive foot care for his patients. With the location of his practice within MHP, he is able to closely monitor patients and partner with existing services such as Wound Ostomy Care and Diabetes Education.

Dr. Beers is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Society and the Iowa Podiatric Medical Society.
