| About Us
Centenary Foot Clinic is
located in The Scarborough
and Rouge Hospital commonly known as
"The Centenary Hospital". The clinic first
opened its doors in October of 2004. Since that day the
clinic's resident chiropodists (Doreen Lavoie Bird, D. Ch
and Sandra Barrett Kent, D. Ch) have helped a vast number of
patients ranging from children to senior citizens overcome
challenges due to injuries and disorders (including diabetes).
Many health care professionals have recognized the level of
expertise available at the clinic. This recognition has
resulted in numerous referrals. The fact that the clinic is
located in a busy Toronto hospital further validates the high
level of care offered by the clinic.
The clinic deals with painful
symptoms as well as preventative foot care. Although new
developments in foot care related products and treatment are constantly being announced the clinic's staff does not stray
from their main goal which is to address the needs of their
patients in a manner that is both medically sound and
affordable. Note: Although OHIP does not cover chiropody
services many health plans do.
What are the qualifications
of a Chiropodist?
Podiatric training begins with
a curriculum of the basic medical science courses.
These studies are combined with courses in:
- Podiatric medicine
- Physical therapy
- Local and regional anesthesia
- Soft Tissue surgery
Third year students may apply
for rotations in hospitals and private clinics across the
province. All Chiropodists must pass a provincial board
examination to practice in Ontario.
Chiropodists are licensed and
regulated by the College of Chiropodists of Ontario for your
