IN ONTARIO NEITHER A PODIATRIST OR A CHIROPODIST IS A 'DOCTOR'.

 

 

IN ONTARIO WE HAVE AN UNIQUE SITUATION WHERE THERE ARE 2 CLASSES OF FOOT CARE SPECIALISTS GOVERNED BY THE SAME COLLEGE AND EACH CLASS HAS DIFFERENT RULES.  THIS FREQUENTLY LEADS TO CONFUSION WITHIN THE GENERAL POPULATION.

NEITHER ONTARIO PODIATRISTS OR ONTARIO CHIROPODISTS ARE LEGALLY ALLOWED TO BE CALLED A DOCTOR ALTHOUGH THEY CAN BOTH PERFORM SURGERY AND PRESCRIBE MEDICATIONS. MOST POEPLE THINK THAT THEY ARE DOCTORS DUE TO THIS FACT.

NOT BEING A DOCTOR HAS NOT INHIBITED OUR SUCCESS ONE BIT.  THE 6 CHIROPODIATS THAT I EMPLOY ALSO COULD CARE LESS THAT THEY ARE NOT PODIATRISTS AS WE ARE ULTRASUCCESSFUL WITH A WAITING LIST FOR MANY WEEKS DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE ARE OPEN 7DAYS A WEEK, EARLY TO LATE. THE REASON FOR OUR INCREDIBLE SUCCESS IS OUR UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE AND OUR PATIENTS.
