WHAT WE OFFER
Medical Footcare Treatment
Initial Assessment & Treatment
The initial appointment includes a complete medical history, nursing assessments, footwear inspections (if required), nursing diagnosis and personalized plan of care. The initial appointment also includes the first treatment for your feet (antimicrobial foot soak, medical footcare treatment, diabetic footcare, ingrown toenail care, thick toenails, corns and callus removal etc.). The treatment will end with a light massage and a comforting warm towel. The nurse will treat anything she is able to in the time allotted for the appointment.
Follow Up Medical Footcare Treatment
At your initial assessment, we recommend a care plan for your specific foot problems (typically every 6-8 weeks to keep your feet healthy and free from complications). At your follow up treatment, any care required and able to be performed in the time allotted will be completed.
Fingernail Trim & File – Available for extra cost only in addition to a footcare treatment
*Please note – our nurses do not apply polish. Foot soak is only provided in home if the patient provides their own basin/supplies (for infection control)

– Sitting/standing long periods
– Swelling of the lower legs or feet

Onyfix ingrown Toenail Bracing
A revolutionary system to relieve and correct chronic ingrown nails. Non-invasive, pain free, and safe for even the highest risk population. Book an assessment today to learn if Onyfix would be a good option for you.
Laser Treatment for Plantar Warts
The FOX Laser is a revolutionary podiatry device that offers a modern alternative to traditional invasive methods. We are the only clinic in the area providing this amazingly successful treatment!
Traditional wart treatments are typically painful, require down time, and weeks upon weeks of treatment. The FOX laser treatment can often rid of warts within only a few treatments!
Laser treatment is a non-invasive technique that does not damage adjacent skin, is safe, and requires no downtime after treatment.
Pulsed laser radiation targets the blood vessels sustaining the wart. Upon intense laser irradiation, a wart should dry out and its entire capillary chains fully coagulated.
Coagulation is a non-ablative treatment, achieved by applying focused laser radiation that dry out the wart by coagulating its capillaries. Laser radiation eradicates the HPV virus since laser radiation causes intense heat at a sub dermis level.
*Results will vary from person to person as everyone reacts differently to all treatments.*

Insurance Information for Patients
Nursing Footcare Services are NOT covered by OHIP, but may be covered through some third party Insurance, Extended Health Insurance Plans, Veteran Affairs (Blue Cross), and/or may be used for medical income tax health deduction purposes.
Our clinic does not bill directly to insurance companies (except VA), but a receipt will be provided to you after payment to submit for reimbursement.
WHAT TO ASK YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY
If you are calling your insurance company to inquire about coverage, please ensure you state the service provided is “Footcare service provided by a Podortho Nurse” and ask whether you require a referral from your doctor.
Also ask them where to submit your claim under (e.g. Nursing Services, Podiatry, etc)
Please note: We are NOT Chiropodists or Podiatrists; however, sometimes our claims are submitted under Podiatry, depending on the insurance company and policy.
IF YOU ARE DENIED INSURANCE COVERAGE
The OPNA is constantly lobbying the insurance companies to promote Podortho Nurses and their scope of practice that should be considered for coverage. If you are denied for any reason, let us know in the clinic and we can give you a letter to submit to your insurance. If the letter is not effective, you may submit a complaint to the OmbudService for Life and Health Insurance (OHLI) at the link below.
Trust us, this is just as frustrating as it is for you, as we know how invaluable the services we provide are for our patients!
