FAQ

Who are podiatrists?

Podiatrists are health professionals who are university graduates. Podiatrists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Agency. Podiatrists are qualified in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot, lower limb and hip ailments.

What can you expect on your first consultation?

In your first consultation, our podiatrists will take your medical history and perform non-invasive tests to check your blood circulation, the feeling in your feet, the way you walk and your range of motion. Once a diagnosis is determined with or without the need for further imaging, we will treat your ailments. Our consultations are roughly 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the service but most importantly, they are pain free!
