  • DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC TREATS THE CAUSE OF YOUR FOOT PROBLEMS, NOT JUST MASKS THE SYMPTOMS!

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS BEEN PRACTICING CONSERVATIVE AND PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SETS HIS TORONTO FOOT CLINIC APART FROM MANY OTHERS.  

WE ARE NOT CONCERNED WITH A PATIENTS' SYMPTOMS BUT RATHER THE CAUSE OT THEIR SYMPTOMS.  I ALWAYS TELL A PATIENT IF THEY ARE ONLY CONCERNED WITH MANAGING THEIR PAIN TO GO AND VISIT THEIR MEDICAL DOCTOR AND FOR ONLY A FEW DOLLARS CAN BE PRESCRIBED A POWERFUL PAIN MEDICATION WHICH WILL MASK THEIR PAIN SYMPTOMS BUT USUALLY DO NOTHING FOR WHAT IS CAUSING THEIR SYMPTOMS.  I DESCRIBE THIS AS THE BAND-AID APPROACH TO MEDICINE.  AS LONG AS YOU FEEL GOOD , EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT WHICH CAN ONLY BE THE FURTHEST THING FROM THE ACTUAL TRUTH.  SYMPTOMS ARE THE BODY'S WARNING SYSTEM OF SOME UNDERLYING PATHOLOGY.  OUR JOB IS TO FIND THE UNDERLYING PATHOLOGY AND TRY TO CORRECT IT AND THEN PREVENT IT FROM REOCCURRING.

 WE ALSO AVOID THE USE OF MEDICATIONS (DRUGS) AND SURGERY AT ALL COSTS AS THERE IS NO SURGICAL PROCEDURE OR MEDICATION THAT DOES NOT CARRY WITH IT RISKS DUE TO UNWANTED SIDE-EFFECTS, IN SOME CASES LIFE THREATENING.  NEVER, EVER WORTH THE RISK IF IT CAN BE AVOIDED.  

MY FOOT CLINIC WOULD NEVER SUGGEST A SURGICAL PROCEDURE FOR A PURELY COSMETIC PURPOSE.  WHY WOULD YOU EVER RISK DAMAGING AN ASYMPTOMATIC JOINT JUST TO IMPROVE IT'S APPEARANCE.  NEVER COMPROMISE FUNCTION FOR AESTHETICS AS THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED IN MOST MEDICAL CIRCLES AS BORDERING ON THE UNETHICAL.

ALL OF THE FOOT SPECIALISTS WHOM I EMPLOY TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN PROVIDING OUR BELOVED PATIENTS WITH EXCEPTIONAL ADVICE, FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  WE TRY AS HARD AS POSSIBLE TO MAKE EACH PATIENT VISIT A POSITIVE ONE AND WILL ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA MILE TO ENSURE PATIENT SATISFACTION.  IF MISTAKES ARE MADE WE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO CORRECT IT.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE TO EXPERIENCE THE 'DR. HARDY DIFFERENCE', PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737 FOR HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.
