As a registered podiatrist in Quebec and as a registered chiropodist in Ontario, Antoun is in the very unique position to offer his expertise into two distinct provincial jurisdictions allowing two different scopes of practices to better serve your needs. In Ontario, registered chiropodists can prescribe oral antibiotics while, in Quebec, registered podiatrists are licensed to perform ultrasonic exams and ultrasonic guided injections, bleomycin wart injections and bone procedures to correct digital misalignment or deformity such as bunions and hammer toes.

Most importantly, Antoun is constantly aiming at offering you such a memorable patient care experience that you just can’t help but share with your family and friends.
