Podiatrists are University trained and qualified to diagnose and treat foot and lower limb complaints. In the UK, you will more commonly hear the term Chiropodist. We are the specialists when it comes to anything foot or lower limb related and we can often assist with knee, hip and back complaints too.
We enjoy seeing a great variety of patients at Footsense Podiatry. From young children to those more seasoned and everyone in between. We see children with developmental concerns, teenagers in growth spurts, sports people, pregnant women and those who are unable to reach their toes like they used to.
We are fully endorsed with Medicare and the Enhanced Primary Care Plan and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are very happy to take referrals for these services.
You do not need a referral from your GP to be seen as a private patient however we will liaise with your GP if you allow, to ensure a comprehensive service is provided. We are registered with HICAPS and can claim your benefit refund on the spot.
