  • What does a Podiatrist do?
    Podiatrists are specialists in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of lower limb and foot conditions.
  • Do I need a referral to see a Podiatrist?
    No, you do not need a referral to see a podiatrist. However, if you are having your costs covered by Workcover, the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) or through an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan, you will need to be referred to our clinic by your general practitioner.
  • Do you have HICAPS?
    Yes. We have a HICAPS terminal on site which allows you to claim your consultation on private health after your appointment. If you forget your private health card, we can email you a copy of your invoice and you can claim directly with your private health fund.
  • Do you provide orthotics?
    Yes we do. It is important to note that not everyone needs orthotics. Therefore, we will assess your need for orthotic therapy during your consultation. To read more on orthotics, head to https://watsoniapodiatry.com.au/sports-care/orthotics/
  • Is Podiatry bulk billed?
    If you have an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan from your GP, your podiatry consultation will be bulk billed. You are entitled to 5 visits covered on an EPC by Medicare for allied health services per calendar year. Your GP will determine whether you are eligible for this program. If you do not have an EPC, your consultation will not be bulk billed by Medicare.
  • Is there Parking and disabled access?
    Yes there is both. We have parking directly out the front of the clinic. There are no stairs into the clinic, therefore allowing for disabled access. We also have bathroom facilities on site that allow for disabled access.
  • Should I be seeing a podiatrist about my problem?
    Podiatrists are specialists in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of lower limb and foot conditions. If you are suffering from pain or discomfort in your feet and lower limbs, come and see us!
  • When Should I See a Podiatrist for a Sports Injury?
    Early intervention is always best, therefore you should see your podiatrist as soon as possible following a sporting injury. This will allow us to help diagnose the injury, reduce the injury and begin the rehab process as soon as possible. By delaying treatment, your injury may linger for a longer period of time or you may be susceptible to further injury.
  • What treatments are used by Podiatrists?
    Podiatrists use a variety of different treatment methods including:
    • Massage
    • Footwear Assessments & Advice
    • Shockwave Therapy
    • Moonboot Fittings
    • Orthotic Fittings & Assessments
    • Injury & Surgery Rehabilitation
    • Diabetic Foot Assessments
    • Foot Mobilisation
    • Dry Needling
    • Nail Surgery
    • General Foot Care
    • Sports Podiatry
  • Do podiatrists offer footwear advice?
    We absolutely do! Footwear is an extremely important component in foot health and inappropriate footwear may be the cause of your pain. A podiatrist can conduct a very thorough assessment of footwear to make sure that they are the right length, width and depth, whether they provide enough support for your feet and whether we can identify any potential issues. Podiatrist's also look at the sole of the shoes to check for abnormal wear patterns which can indicate issues with your gait (walking or running). It is important to also have the right shoe for the right purpose. For example, we wouldn't recommend using a runner instead of a footy boot when playing football!
