No, however we do accept eligible Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) or Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) referrals.
Some children suffer foot ailments and development problems and if they are identified early, many conditions can be successfully treated. These young development years for children’s feet will directly affect their strength and mobility in later years. Below are common reasons why your child would benefit from seeing a podiatrist:

  • If your child is complaining of foot or leg pain
  • A family history of foot and leg pain
  • If you notice any abnormal walking or running patterns
  • Abnormal skin or nails
  • Footwear advice
  • Uneven shoe wear
New patients are encouraged to bring the below items to their appointment:

  • Current footwear
  • Any current/previous orthotics
  • Appropriate images/scans pertinent to your feet
  • Any further correspondence you’ve received from other clinicians that you feel may help your podiatrist
  • Any EPC/DVA referrals to be claimed at the time of your appointment
  • Private health insurance membership card
Our podiatrists need to be able to ideally see and have accessibility to move and assess your feet, knees and hips. Please bring along sports shorts or tights if you’re unsure. Please remember to bring a few pairs of shoes you commonly wear to your consultation.
Yes, Private health funds can cover podiatry but it will depend on your level of cover as to whether you are eligible to claim for these services. You will need to contact your health fund to find out about your personal entitlements to podiatry fees. Our HICAPS facility allows us to directly claim from your private health fund at the time of your treatment.
