Parking + Access

Inkerman clinic:

Parking is available on-site (via Inkerman Street) as well as on surrounding streets.  Ramp access is available via the carpark.

How are Podiatrists different to other medical specialties?

Podiatrists are foot, ankle and lower limb specialists who can assess, treat and manage most foot and lower limb conditions. Podiatrists are University educated including extensive training in relevant medical subjects.


Podiatrists are able to refer for diagnostic imaging, treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries, perform minor surgical procedures, manage complex wounds and prescribe certain drugs and customised orthotics.


You can rest assured that our clinic operates under strict infection control and hygiene measures.

For the items and tools used during treatment that are not single-use, we clean, bag and use an autoclave to sterilise our tools at high temperature. 


For individuals whose Private Health Insurance cover includes Podiat​ry we offer private health insurance rebates on the spot with HICAPS. Please enquire with your health insurance provider to check your level of cover.


Visa, Mastercard, EFTPOS, cash and cheque are all accepted.
