Meredith takes pride in providing gentle and thorough foot care. She is warm, caring and patient. She enjoys listening to the stories her patients tell, as long as they are willing to hear a few of her own (usually about her adorable cat).
She treats patients of all ages, from young children to patients in their nineties! Meredith especially enjoys treating people with pain from corns or ingrown toenails, because they are so happy to experience the immediate relief chiropody treatment can provide.
Meredith has completed training in different nail bracing techniques, which are non-invasive ways of treating ingrown toenails. These can be especially useful for patients who are not eligible for surgical procedures, such as some diabetic patients.
Custom-made foot orthotics are an important part of Meredith’s practice. These devices work to support patient’s feet and accommodate numerous foot issues.
Meredith performs a thorough biomechanical exam and gait analysis before prescribing orthotics. She uses the tried and tested method of plaster casting to make moulds of patients’ feet, which are then sent to a lab off site which specializes in the production of custom orthotics.
