Yes the capitol is really too far. Santiago is the farthest that would work with occasional visits likely, but thanks.

Check with the Institute of Diabetes and Nutrition in POP (there are offices in both POP and Santiago). When I've gone there to purchase insulin, I've seen that one of the docs is usually treating patients with foot problems. I don't know what his specialty is. Although he is treating more severe problems like ulcerations and infections, he may be able to refer you to someone who does routine foot care if he doesn't do it himself. BTW, bring a translator if you are not fluent in Spanish.

Thanks for the replies. Still would like another name or two in Santiago area if possible possible at one of the bigger clinics/hospitals. Thanks
