Having both studied Podiatry at the University of Adelaide and gained the
combined experience of treating a range of clients and conditions, Tom and
Georgina decided to establish a clinic in the hub of the eastern suburbs,
Bondi Junction in 2002.
Podiatry First was set up to provide the highest quality foot care to a
range of clients that include children, people experiencing foot and heel
pain, women who want to look better in sandals or feel better in
stilettos, and older people with specific health problems. Since 2002, Podiatry First has grown to become on of the most respected and busiest clinics in the area.
Georgina Jamieson (Barry)
Georgina treats clients at Podiatry First Bondi Junction and Miranda. Georgina knows the importance of healthy feet and good looking feet.
That's why Georgie's foot treatments are some of the most sought after in the Eastern Suburbs and Sutherland Shire. Clients include busy professionals, children and older people with specific ailments.
Georgie has bought with her to the Miranda clinic new advanced methods of casting and biomechanics with the introduction of the FAS weight baring casting system and Dart Fish video gait analysis, to help treat all foot injuries.
"I see so many clients - men and women alike - who come to the clinic with a foot problem, whether it's heel pain or a sore knee and they'll keep coming back for the treatments even after the problem has gone."
Tom treats clients at Podiatry First Bondi Junction and Mascot. Tom is always looking at new proven techniques to help his clients get the best from their feet.
As a keen runner, surfer and snow skier, Tom is particularly passionate about helping other sports enthusiasts to overcome foot, ankle or knee pain.
"People are surprised at how much the right shoe or support can do for the way you run, walk your way around the golf course or play tennis. It sounds like a small thing - but if you're into your sport, it can really make a difference"
