1) What will my first consultation be like?

At your first consultation, we will be looking to get to know as much as we can about you so we can serve you best.

First, you will fill out a medical history form, as well as the necessary policy and consent forms. Then, you’ll meet with the Chiropodist who will review these forms with you.

Next, the Chiropodist will do a complete foot and ankle examination, address your foot concerns and discuss your treatment and therapy options.

Once a treatment plan is agreed upon, treatment will be administered or scheduled for a later date.

Once we start treatment, we always follow-up with you to see how you’re doing.

2. Do I need to book an appointment?

We highly recommend booking an appointment to allow enough time for assessment and treatment. However, we can often accommodate same-day appointments and walk-ins.

Give us a call or book an appointment online.

3. Do I need to be referred to see the Chiropodist?

5. What is a Chiropodist?

A Chiropodist is a healthcare professional that assess, treats and prevents injury specifically dealing with feet. They treat patients with needs around orthotics, skin and nail care, as well as soft tissue procedures with local anesthetic.

6. What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?

Many people are confused about the meaning of these two titles. Both are regulated by the College of Chiropodists of Ontario, and both are primary health care providers who can assess and treat foot and ankle problems, prescribe drugs and orthotics and perform soft tissue surgery.

The main difference between these two titles is based on when and where the practitioner graduated. Any practitioner who uses the title podiatrist in Ontario graduated from an American school of Podiatry and began practising in Ontario before 1993. Any podiatrists who graduated and moved to Ontario after 1993 are registered as chiropodists.


7. Are Chiropody services covered by OHIP?

OHIP does not cover Chiropody treatment, however Chiropody services are covered by many employer health insurance plans.

8. Are Chiropody services covered by my health insurance?

Every insurance plan is different so we highly recommend that you check with your insurance provider to see if you have coverage for Chiropody services. We also strongly suggest that you inquire about whether you have coverage for orthotics or orthopedic shoes.

9. What type of payment do you accept?

Payment for your consultation and treatment can be made with debit, cash, and most major credit cards.

10. Can you bill my insurance company directly?

We require that you pay in full for your consultation, treatment and products and then submit your claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
