Medical Footcare has been providing high-quality podiatry services at The Elms since March 2012 and is available on Monday and Tuesday.
Dr Gerard Zammit (PhD) is the principal podiatrist and has a particular interest in the management of foot and ankle pain, children's foot problems, diabetes-related podiatry treatment, insole fitting and all general podiatry care. He has completed a Bachelor of Podiatry with Honours, as well as a Doctor of Philosophy, both through La Trobe University, and his research interests include osteoarthritis of the feet, the use of orthoses, and degenerative foot conditions.
Assisting is Mr Nicholas Squillari, who has completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry), and like Gerard, is a Member of the Australian Podiatry Association.
Gerard and Nick may be consulted privately (no Medicare rebate although a rebate may apply if you have appropriate private health insurance) or through your doctor via a Team Care Arrangement (TCA) as part of a General Practice Management Plan (GPMP) for patients with qualifying chronic complex medical conditions, such as diabetes. Please discuss with your doctor regarding whether you are eligible for Medicare-rebated podiatry services.
