Chelsea Williams (B.Pod)
Chelsea’s passion for podiatry started with her keen interest in health and the human body which led her to pursue a career in Podiatry. Chelsea graduated from the University of Newcastle and is a member of The Australian Podiatry Association. Chelsea is interested in all aspects of podiatry and offers experience in all facets of podiatric care, ranging from general podiatry, high risk diabetic foot care, sports and biomechanics and child gait related problems. Chelsea loves educating her patients about their feet and puts a strong emphasis on explaining and communicating about any problems they may have. This enables her to deliver excellent outcomes for all her patients.
What Do Podiatrists Do?
We often neglect to look after our feet yet they are our mode of transport. We will walk more than 128,000 km in our lifetime – equivalent to three times around the world! Podiatrists are highly-skilled health professionals trained to prevent, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
Podiatrists commonly treat:
- Foot and leg pain
- Ingrown toenails or fungal nails
- Skin problems such as corns, callus and warts
- Assess foot health for conditions such as diabetes
Bulk Billing Available for All EPC and DVA Patients
Bulk billing is available for all patients with an Enhanced Primary Care plan (EPC) or Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) patients. An EPC is a referral from your doctor for people with chronic health conditions that affect that persons ability to care for their feet. Examples of this may be someone with diabetes or with back pain or problems. Please feel free to give us a call if you would like more information about these referrals, or make an appointment with your doctor to see if you may be eligible.
We are a Newcastle and Lake Macquarie based podiatry practice providing excellent foot care for all ages. Focused on providing a holistic approach, and always striving to maintain a friendly and caring approach to foot health. Whether its basic foot care, or foot and leg pain that is holding you back, we can help get you back on your feet, and back to doing what you like to do.
