DO I NEED A DOCTOR'S REFERRAL TO VISIT A CHIROPODISTS OR PODIATRISTS CLINIC?

NO, CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS IN ONTARIO ARE PRIMARY CARE HEALTH PRACTITIONERS AND NO REFERRAL IS NECESSARY.

ARE MY TREATMENTS COVERED BY OHIP?

IF YOU SEE A PODIATRIST YOU HAVE PARTIAL COVERAGE FOR TREATMENT.  IT IS USUALLY LESS THAN 25% OF THE OVERALL COST AND MANY TIMES YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE WILL NOT COVER YOU IF YOUR PODIATRIST BILLS OHIP.  CHIROPODISTS ARE NOT COVERED BY OHIP, BUT YOU ARE USUALLY IN A BETTER POSITION IF YOU HAVE EXTENDED HEALTH BENEFITS TO HAVE YOUR TREATMENTS COVERED IF YOU CONSULT A CHIROPODIST RATHER THAN A PODIATRIST.  YOU SHOULD BE SURE TO CONTACT YOUR EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE PROVIDER BEFORE CONSULTING A PODIATRIST TO SEE IF YOU WILL BE REIMBURSED IF THEY USE PARTIAL OHIP COVERAGE FOR YOUR VISIT.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE LONG TO GET AN APPOINTMENT?

AS THERE ARE ONLY 60 PODIATRISTS IN THE WHOLE OF ONTARIO AND OVER 500 CHIROPODISTS, YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING AN EARLIER APPOINTMENT IF YOU CONSULT A CHIROPODIST IN ONTARIO.

WILL THE TREAMENTS BE THE SAME FROM A PODIATRIST AND A CHIROPODIST?

BOTH PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS ARE REGULATED UNDER THE SAME COLLEGE IN ONTARIO, THE ONTARIO COLLEGE OF CHIROPODISTS OF ONTARIO.  ONTARIO PODIATRISTS ARE ALLOWED TO PERFORM SURGERY TO THE BONE OF THE FOREFOOT.  CHIROPODISTS CAN PERFORM ALL SURGERIES AS A PODIATRIST, EXCEPT SURGERY TO THE FOREFOOT.  SURGERY TO THE SOFT TISSUES SUCH AS TENDONS, NAILS, MISCLES AND NERVES ARE DONE BY BOTH PROFESSIONS.  BOTH ARE LICENCED TO PRESCRIBE AND ADMINISTER MEDICATIONS AND DRUGS.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CONDITIONS TREATED BY CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS?

PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS TREAT DIABETES FOOT RELATED PROBLEMS, WARTS, INGROWN NAILS, GOUT, BUNIONS, HEEL PAIN, MORTON'S NEUROMA, FUNGAL INFECTIONS OF NAILS AND FEET, ULCERS, CORNS, PLANTAR FASCIITIS, ACHILLES TENDONITIS, SPRAINS, STRAINS, SOFT TISSUE INJURIES.  YOU NAME IT, IF IT AFFECTS THE FOOT, A PODIATRIST OR CHIROPODIST CAN TREAT IT.
