Foot & Nail Problems
Most of the treatments we use to help you are pain-free. If you have a particularly sore or painful lesion we are able to use local anaesthetic to numb the area. This will help us to treat the sore area so that you can get back to your normal activity as quickly as possible.
Some of the conditions we commonly help people with are:
What to expect in your consult?
We know your time is valuable and true to our values of respecting everybody we strive to always run on time.
Prior to your appointment you will receive an email with a link to complete your client forms online. If you prefer to do it in person we would appreciate that you arrive 10 mins earlier to allow time for registration and to make things run smoothly.
On arrival, you’ll be welcomed with a smile! You’ll meet your podiatrist, who will listen to your history, work with you to perform a thorough assessment and begin treatment to get to the bottom of your concerns.
We’ll stay in touch by sending personal emails or SMS (not bulk spam), and also ask for feedback after your appointments so we can continue to improve our service to you.

No, you do not need a referral to see a Podiatrist. The only time you’ll need a referral is if you qualify for the Medicare funded Chronic Management Care Plan or if you’re a War Veteran with a Gold Card.
Our Podiatrists are very popular so we can’t guarantee an appointment on the same day but we’ll do our best to make it happen if you contact us by phone.
We allow 40 mins for all initial consultations. This extended time will allow our Podiatrists to meet you, assess you and give you a management plan and treatment. Our subsequent appointments are generally 20 mins in duration.
Yes, Podiatrists can refer for x-rays, ultrasounds and MRIs.
We accept all private health funds. With our HICAPS terminal, you’ll be able to claim on the spot!
No, however we are registered with Medicare who will contribute $52.95 towards your appointment fee if you have a GP referral under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan. You just pay the difference, that’s all. Your doctor (GP) can refer you for up to 5 sessions in a year for chronic conditions such as Diabetes.
