Clients at most risk can also be seen by the Thousand Island /Rideau Tay High Risk Chiropody Initiative. This initiative is specially designed to provide Chiropody care to individuals who have chronic illness (diabetes, vascular disease) and advanced foot problems and those who are most at risk for foot issues. Eligible clients are those who do not have any health insurance coverage or who have exhausted their insurance coverage for Chiropody services. You can ask to be seen at a location that is closer for you.
