Treatment for Toenail Fungus
Fungal infection of toenails is a common foot health problem. A majority of victims don’t seek treatment; maybe don’t even recognize the existence of a problem. Studies estimate that it afflicts 3 to 5% of the population but chiropodists think the incidence is much higher. Learn more about how we treat toenail fungus >

Are you uncertain about whether you should choose a chiropodist vs. podiatrist? Chiropodists and podiatrists provide the same care. There are 600 registered chiropodists in Ontario and only 60 podiatrists. The College of Chiropodists of Ontario stopped using the name podiatrist in Ontario in 1993, over 26 years ago — but the name is still used in other provinces in Canada, also USA and UK.
Chiropodists today must complete 7 years of post-secondary education. We do complete case management of foot problems, assessing and treating the entire foot and its complications.
