We can also offer HICAPS and Medicare claiming on the spot, saving you valuable time. And, just in case you ever forget an appointment, we can arrange SMS reminders. Here at Dapto Podiatry Clinic, we do everything we can to make solving your foot and lower limb problems as easy as possible.
My introduction to Podiatry came when I was 13 and playing netball several times a week. I suffered greatly from plantar fasciitis and ended up seeing a podiatrist who fitted me with orthotics. Since then my feet have been pain free… as long as I still wear my orthotics. But, that sparked an interest in foot health that continues today.
I have worked in both private practice and for the Illawarra Health Service since beginning work in 1992. I have also worked as a clinical supervisor in the Podiatry faculty at the University of Western Sydney.
I opened Dapto Podiatry Clinic in 1993 and we moved to our current location in 1995. I enjoy all aspects of working as a podiatrist in a team environment, but I have a particular interest in nail surgery and ingrown toenails, adolescent health and preventative foot care.
