NB: The term “podiatrist” posted in the CONTACT INFORMATION section of the Google Page of OttawaFootPractice may be misleading. Please note that ”podiatrist” is the only title Google offers to health professionals practicing podiatric medicine. As Google does not take into consideration our College regulations in Ontario, it limits its professional category designations in this field to “podiatrist” and does not allow the selection of the professional title “chiropodist”. On October 13th, 2015, OttawaFootPractice made a written request to Google to offer the aforementioned option and to keep us posted.
