About Valentine Podiatry
Podiatry involves the diagnosis and management of disorders of the lower limb. Commonly this involves the following key areas-
Nail and skin care
General treatments, diabetic foot checks, fungal nails, verruca (wart) treatments and removing ingrowing nails, corns, and callous.
Assessment and management of any injury of the lower limb. We commonly see heel pain, shin splints, or burning in the foot.
Comprehensive examination of the structure, alignment and function of the feet and legs while standing, walking and running.
No referral is needed to see a podiatrist. Patients with a Chronic Disease Management plan (EPC) provided by their GP will be bulk billed for general treatments. HICAPS is also available for private health insurance claims.
The Valentine Podiatry Team
Valentine Podiatry is owned by Courtney and Andrew Crofts.
Courtney has over eight years experience working as a podiatrist in private clinics in Sydney and Newcastle. As a Type 1 Diabetic, Courtney has a great understanding of the need for diabetic foot care and management.
Andrew initially completed a degree in Exercise and Sports Science and was employed in injury management before going on to study Podiatry. Andrew enjoys all aspects of Podiatry; however, his extensive study has led to a keen interest in anatomy and injury management.
Courtney and Andrew both grew up in the area and now love living locally with their son, Charlie, and their Golden Retriever, Bailey.
