Get back to not thinking about your feet.
At the Merry Family Foot Clinic our Chiropodist Julia Merry provides assessment and treatment of the foot and ankle for all ages. Our objective is to aid in the prevention and provide treatment for the diseases and disorders of the foot and ankle by therapeutic, palliative, orthotic, or surgical means.
Since Chiropodists have prescribing rights, a Doctor's referral is not required. For appointments you can contact Hannah and we would be more than delighted to book you in at the earliest convenience.
Chiropodists are regulated health care professionals that can assess and manage a variety of foot complications including skin, nail disorders, structural disorders and and gait abnormalities. We offer a number of treatments for such conditions as ingrown nails (both surgical and conservative), warts , corns, callus, fungal nails, psorriatic nails, involuted and thickened nails. We also offer treatment solutions for heel pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and morton's neuroma, for example.
There also is a department where we can provide generic foot beds, heel lifts, appliances to aid bunions, toe deformities, as well as manufacturing custom moulded orthotics by our chiropodist.
Footwear is an important part of proper foot health. We carry a great selection of slippers, shoes, boots, and sandals for both men and women. Each shoe is ordered for each individual after measuring for accurate width and length. Most of the shoes are orthopaedic, offering a variety of features for the hard to fit foot.
Custom Moulded Orthotics
Custom moulded orthotics are manufactured here in Kingston on site at Julia’s orthotic lab. She manufactures each one individually with care and confidence.
Patients are booked a casting appointment and then casted in a sub-talar joint neutral position. Casts are then used for the manufacturing of a custom moulded orthotics.
Custom moulded orthotics are ready in approximately 2–3 weeks for pick up where a fitting is provided and patients are given the advice to break in slowly. Patients are then provided with a one month telephone review. If need be, patients are able to come back with any interruptions and have their custom moulded orthotics modified at no charge. This provides patients with a continuous care and relief that their custom moulded orthotics are not being sent away for production.
Custom moulded orthotics are not guaranteed to relieve patients of symptoms, but in most cases do so.
A prescription form is required for custom moulded orthotics by a physician with a diagnosis in order to get coverage through insurance companies. They may also require a biomechanical examination and gait analysis which Julia can provide on request.
Our services are covered by most insurance companies. We are a registered provider with Blue Cross, Green Shield, Great West Life, DVA, WSIB, and we are a Certified Civilian Health Practitioner for the Canadian Armed Forces. For those few without coverage we accept cash, Interac, Visa, MasterCard, and Apple Pay.
No Show Policy
Patients need to give 24 hours notice of any appointment changes. Failure to show for more than one appointment in a 12 month period may result in a No Show Fee. The Fee is equal to the cost of the missed appointment.
Late Arrival Policy
Due to an increase in late arrivals we have implemented a Late Arrival Policy. The time late will be taken from your scheduled appointment time. (For example, 5 minutes late for a 15 minute appointment leaves 10 minutes remaining.)
