We accept prescriptions from both military and civilian providers. Patients are required to bring the prescription and their medical records to obtain treatment. Most care is provided on a walk-in basis with minimal waiting time. Some specialty items such as custom-made arch supports require a prescription from either a podiatrist or orthopaedic surgeon. We are also happy to schedule patients for appointments. To schedule appointments or ask questions, please call (210) 292-5388 or 292-5387.
