We treat a variety of fungal infections affecting both the skin of the feet and toenails. Fungal infections are notoriously persistent and difficult to fully treat with at-home remedies – especially toenail fungus.
This is because our shoes and socks create a dark, moist environment, ideal for fungi growth. With toenail fungus, the toenail further serves as a barrier that prevents anti-fungal medication from directly penetrating the source of the fungal infection.
Fortunately, our chiropodists have methods that can circumvent these obstacles. We provide the following treatment for foot and toenail fungal infections:
In addition to the treatment services provided by our chiropodist, our foot clinic also sells various products to supplement your treatment and prevent future infections. These include:
Our foot specialists and knowledgeable staff will help you find the right footwear and foot care solutions to reduce your risk for developing or aggravating foot and toenail fungus.
At your assessment, the chiropodist will take a medical history and examine the fungal infection. Testing may be done to verify whether or not it is a fungal infection. Afterwards, the chiropodist will discuss a treatment plan with you.
Fungal infections are very persistent and it will likely take multiple appointments to fully treat and eradicate.
Treatment and procedures by a chiropodist are covered – in full or in part – by most private extended health benefit plans. Each insurance company has their own stipulations about what and how much they will cover. Please note: chiropodist services are NOT covered by OHIP.
If you are unsure about your benefits and coverage for chiropodist services, you can contact your insurance company directly, go to your online benefits portal, or check with your employer’s HR department to receive a breakdown of your policy.
We strongly recommend that you contact your insurance company directly to verify your coverage prior to your appointment.
Non-prescription over-the-counter products are not covered by insurance.
