A Message from the Director
As a Podiatrist I see patients presenting to my clinics with avoidable conditions, often a result of poor hygiene at local salons. Time and time again I see people taking risks to have pedicures and then present to our clinic to treat the after effects when something goes wrong. This is why I decided that Medical Pedicure was the way forward and it was designed with you and your safety and health in mind.
At Medical Pedicure we are qualified Podiatrists who use only autoclaved and sanitary instruments. It is here that you will get the best advice for all your foot related matters. Why risk your health and your feet?
-Melissa Biedak, Podiatrist and Director Medical Pedicure
