  • DR. HARDY SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING HIS TORONTO FOOT CLINIC

DO I NEED A REFERRAL?

NO, CHIROPODISTS ARE PRIMARY CARE FOOT SPECIALISTS AND NO DOCTOR REFERRAL IS REQUIRED AND THEY ARE TREATED ON AN EQUAL BASIS AS PODIATRISTS AS FAR AS EXTENDED HEALTH INSURANCE BENEFITS ARE CONCERNED.

WHO VISITS A FOOT SPECIALIST?

PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND DIFFERENT STAGES OF LIFE BENEFIT FROM THE ADVICE AND TREATMENT PROVIDED BY A CHIROPODIST, AND IT IS GENERALLY NEVER TOO EARLY OR LATE TO SEEK HELP.  WITH CHILDREN, IT IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE PROBLEMS CHECKED EARLY, AS MANY FOOT CONDITIONS AFFECTING ADULTS MAY HAVE BEEN AVOIDED BY EARLY DETECTION AND TREATMENT.

WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF PRACTICE?

THE SCOPE OF PRACTICE BY CHIROPODISTS IS BROAD, RANGING FROM BASIC FOOT CARE NEEDS RIGHT THROUGH TO COMPLEX MUSCULOSKELETAL, ARTHRITIC NEUROLOGICAL FOOT CONDITIONS.  THEY ARE HIGHLY EDUCATED AND SKILLED AND STAY CURRENT WITH ONGOING EDUCATION IN THE VARIOUS FIELDS OF EXPERTISE.  THEY ARE LICENSED TO PRESCRIBE AND PERFORM SURGERY ALTHOUGH OUR PARTICULAR FOOT CLINIC PRACTICES CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
