First, our med-tech specialist will evaluate your feet. If there is any medical problems, Dr. Pandit will evaluate and treat those first. This will include callus debridement if needed because this should only be done by a podiatric surgeon and not a "shaving device" at a salon. Since whirlpool salon tubs are notorious for festering infections, we will first soak your feet in a copper, jetless, fully sterilized tub with a dermatological organic soak using sterile warm water. As the pedicure continues, everything used will be luxurious organic products used by licensed dermatologists to pamper and soften your feet. All tools that can be reused are sterilized by a operating room autoclave and those that are not are only used once then thrown away. When it is time for polish, we use disposable cups and brushes to ensure that a brush is never in contact with anyone but yourself. You are left with beautiful sandal ready feet with a peace of mind for your safety.


How is it different than a salon pedicure? Salons vary greatly in hygiene and often re use products and re circulate water in the whirlpools. They reuse polish and base coats until they are empty. They cannot usually afford to use the level of hospital grade sanitation a doctor is required to have and be trained to use. Inspections vary greatly all over the country, where some states never have inspectors take a look at the infection control of a salon. They are not medically trained doctors who recognize infections or fungus and often still treat a person anyway thus effectively spreading infection. Dr. Pandit's "Rule of Toe": Just think, the person with green and black toenails and stinky feet went before you. Do you really feel safe going after them in the same tub, using the same nail polish?"


Feel thoroughly pampered and relaxed in our private suite for a one of a kind safe pedicure customized to your needs. No more unsafe whirlpools, instruments and lack of privacy. Enjoy a relaxing refreshment and leave with your feet feeling the best they ever have!
