You're so excited. You and your husband decide to escape Seattle's rain festival by going somewhere warm and sunny. You chose Yelapa, Mexico a small island just a boat's ride away from Puerto Vallarta. Laying on a warm, sandy beach and poking around a small village sounds heavenly.

To get prepared you start going through your shoe gear. You've got your hiking boots, your tennis shoes, and your flip flops. Just for fun you pull off your socks, slip on your flip flops, and stare down at your feet. Then it hits you. You still haven't done a thing about your ugly, fungal toenails.

In fact, you've been having the same argument with yourself for the past couple years. "Should I spend the money and get this treated? Or just go another year painting over the ugliness even though it seems to be getting worse."

Like you, many of our patients take awhile before they decide to act. It's easy to rationalize away the need to treat your toenails, but consider this:

  • most fungal nails get worse and become thick and distorted
  • become painful
  • become harder to treat.

Knowing this, making a decision becomes easy. Feel free to check out our Seattle Fungal Toenail Center to get more information about the process.

Call us today at 206-368-7000 for an appointment, often same day. You can also request an appointment online.
