Dr. Comfort Shoes are designed and manufactured to the highest standards of foot wellness, especially for people living with diabetes and other health conditions that affect their feet — including swelling, bunions, hammertoes and more.
Based on more than 25 years of footwear design experience and with input from board-certified podiatrists, Dr. Comfort shoes are made using only the finest quality materials — so they’re as fashionable as they are comfortable and healthy for your feet. Most styles are available in a full range of sizes and difficult-to-fit widths.
The Dr. Comfort Laboratory can also customize shoes to help manage many foot health conditions.

DR. COMFORT MEDICARE REIMBURSEMENT
Since 1993, Medicare Part B has provided partial reimbursement for extra-depth shoes and inserts for qualifying patients with diabetes. Medical experts agree that many amputations resulting from diabetes-related foot complications can be prevented by appropriate, properly fitting footwear.
The classic craftsmanship and sophisticated style of Dr. Comfort are desirable for anyone in search of the finest quality in a comfort shoe. Designed as a diabetic shoe, we also provide many protective and comfort features for all to love. Prescription diabetic footwear can help prevent more serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes. Medicare and supplemental insurance may reimburse for all or part of the cost of Dr. Comfort shoes and prescription inserts for diabetics who meet certain general criteria. A qualified health professional can determine if you are eligible. If you suffer from diabetes or any foot health concerns, we strongly encourage you to see a foot health professional to ensure all of your foot health needs are properly addressed.
If you prefer, Erickson Home Medical can also provide you with a brochure (below) you can take to your Primary Care Physician to see if you qualify and get your paperwork started. This brochure explains the process for both you and your doctor and includes simple 1-2-3 instructions, along with the forms your doctor will need to complete.
