About the Job


We are looking for a highly motivated, skilled podiatrist with a passion for seeing patients leave their clinic happier than how they walked in. Clinical excellence is vital, however we are also looking for someone that can get along with others well and enjoy working in a team environment. You will see a wide range of patients with conditions including musculoskeletal injuries and nail and skin conditions. Our previous podiatrist is moving cities to be closer to family and we want to hand over the clinic to someone who will take good care of our current patients and reach more patients with exceptional podiatry care.
