Axis Foot & Ankle Clinic offers all types of treatment for the feet and ankles, including shockwave therapy, custom orthotics, laser therapy, and injections.
The clinic diagnoses and treats bunions, plantar warts, fungal infections, heel and foot pain, and helps manage arthritis, diabetic feet, flat feet, and other conditions.
Axis Foot & Ankle Clinic also has access to 3D technology to help orthotics patients get the best-fit support for their feet.
These services are made possible by Dr. Irvine, a podiatrist Kaufman Memorial Award for Orthopedic & Biomechanical proficiency. Dr. Irvine himself is an expert not only in minor surgeries involving toenails but also in complex reconstructive ones for the foot and ankle.
Aside from having a wide range of treatments, Axis Foot & Ankle offers virtual appointment options to make itself more accessible. It also has three convenient locations in Calgary.
However, you should know that its online appointments are much more expensive than its onsite appointments. Additionally, it only accepts patients on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Knowledgeable, effectively uses technology
“When I first came – over three years ago – I could barely walk, in spite of using orthotics prescribed by another podiatrist. After six months of using my new orthotics, my foot issues were completely resolved without surgery. I was amazed by the difference, and no longer resigned to accept foot pain as an inevitable attribute of aging. I am grateful to have my mobility back. Dr. Irvine is very knowledgeable and effectively uses his 3-D technology to prescribe solutions that address current problems and prevent future ones.”—Terri Harris
Follows up, through assessments, fast and efficient process
“I was very happy with the service I received at Axis Foot Clinic. Dr Andrew Irvine is extremely thorough in his assessment of your situation and very helpful and kind about fixing your problems. He had everything taken care of so fast and efficiently. The receptionist Janice was great in the follow up to make sure that I was doing well. I would recommend to anyone that if you have any foot issues that you would receive the most professional and friendly help at Axis Foot Clinic.”—Shauna Smith
2. Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic
|SERVICES||Custom orthotics, ingrown nail treatment, plantar wart treatment, shockwave therapy, laser therapy, surgery, sports injury treatment|
|ADDRESS||5005 Dalhousie Dr NW #287, Calgary, AB T3A 5R8|
|CONTACT DETAILS||(403) 247-1961 | [email protected]|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday, Wednesday: 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM|
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
If you need the best podiatrist in Calgary for your ingrown toenails, warts, or foot structure problems, then Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic should be among your top picks.
We say this because the clinic uses advanced technology for such conditions, including laser treatments and shockwave therapy. Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic also does surgery and custom orthotics for its clients.
What we find special about this clinic is that it offers routine foot care. So, clients who have conditions like diabetes, ingrown toenails, corns, and calluses can come here for regular check-ups and nail clipping.
The Dalhousie Station Foot Clinic is usually closed on weekends. But fortunately, it still entertains weekend appointments upon request.
However, we did find that several of its customers have complained about feeling rushed during their appointments.
Some also talk about wishing greater value from its services. The good side to this is that it remains transparent with its pricing to avoid any surprises.
Cheerful staff, kind, professional, and efficient doctor, transparent pricing
“Dr. Russell and his team are amazing! From my first visit, I was cheerfully greeted by the front desk staff who were also efficient in completing COVID screening, addressing questions, completing paperwork, and getting me into a treatment room. Dr. Russell is efficient, kind, and professional with all his treatment, communication, and bedside manner. All of my foot concerns were addressed and appropriate recommendations were made. During my visit, I was informed of treatment options and pricing throughout so there were no surprises upon final payment. I would highly recommend Dalhousie Foot Clinic for all your foot concerns!”—Kerri McLaughlin
Caring and friendly team, skillful surgeon
“I had a wonderful experience having my ingrown toe nail treated at the clinic. Dr. Russell and his staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and caring which made the experience a positive one. Dr. Russell is a skillful surgeon and the procedure was virtually painless. The price for the removal procedure might seem high at first, but when you factor in the included follow-up appointments, the guarantee of no future nail regrowth, and ability to call the doctor anytime after the procedure should complications arise then I think the price is very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone having the same problem to visit the clinic as soon as possible.”—Garry Tam
3. Feldman & Leavitt Foot & Ankle Specialists
|SERVICES||Podiatric surgery, HyProCure procedure, custom orthotics, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, laser therapy|
|ADDRESS||10601 Southport Rd SW Unit 300, Calgary, AB T2W 3M6|
|CONTACT DETAILS||(403) 719-9500|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday – Friday: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM|
With the belief in prompt diagnosis and early prevention, Feldman & Leavitt Foot & Ankle Specialists offers surgical as well as conservative treatments to its patients.
This clinic is home to Dr. Ziv Feldman and Dr. Darren Leavitt, certified podiatric surgeons who remain active in new technologies and practices in their field.
With their expertise, their clinic treats anyone with bunions, flat feet, athlete’s foot, diabetic foot, and other foot and ankle related conditions.
Feldman & Leavitt does so by providing custom orthotics, platelet-rich plasma therapy, laser therapy, HyProCure procedure, and of course, foot and ankle surgery.
But given that this clinic doesn’t have weekend hours and is sought out not only by those living in Calgary but also in nearby towns, it may be a bit more difficult to secure an appointment.
Its website even posts the respective waiting times of each doctor, showing up to 3 months of waiting time. So, if you want to be one of their top priorities, you can simply schedule an appointment online.
Knowledgeable, friendly, and compassionate team, generous with time
“I couldn’t be more grateful to have met Dr. Feldman and his team. In my experience his front receptionist is kind and helpful (always asking if I”m ok when booking appointments etc.) I found his nurse and assistant are accessible, knowledgeable, warm and friendly. Most importantly he himself is an incredible doc. He was generous with his time explaining all the risks and benefits, answering every one of my overly researched questions – drawing diagrams and explaining not only how the mechanics of why my foot was not functioning well – but also explained clearly how he could correct it. He was honest and accurate about the outcome and recovery time. I had been told by others to tolerate the incredible ongoing pain in my foot but Dr. Feldman held my foot with compassion and skill. In the end I am thrilled by the results and progress – I am able to dance and play with my kids again and am pain free (post op pain was fine as well!)”—F Kurji
Exceptional care, thorough aftercare
“Dr. Feldman performed bunion surgery on my left foot 7 months ago and I could not be happier with the result. I felt at ease at every step of the process due to the exceptional care provided by the office staff. The surgery was very successful and the aftercare was thorough. I would recommend Dr. Feldman to anyone experiencing foot/ankle issues.”—Michaela Melosky
4. Alpine Foot & Ankle Clinic
|SERVICES||Podiatric surgery, custom orthotics, sports treatment, shockwave therapy, diabetic foot care|

Tuesday – Wednesday: 8:00 AM – 7:00 PM

Saturday: 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Now, you can find the best podiatrist in Calgary with a wide range of treatments and flexible operating hours in Alpine Foot & Ankle Clinic. We say this because the clinic is open on Saturdays and closes as late as 7 PM on some weekdays.
Aside from having extended opening hours, Alpine Foot & Ankle Clinic also has a relatively large team of podiatric surgeons offering invasive and arthroscopic surgeries alike. These three doctors also have their availability posted on the clinic’s website.
Alpine’s patients can even specify their preferred schedule and podiatrist on its online forms.
With a large team, Alpine Foot & Ankle Clinic offers shockwave therapy, custom orthotics with 3D technology, sports medicine, and podiatric surgery. Moreover, this clinic offers diabetic foot care and examinations.
Alpine Foot & Ankle Clinic is also one of the few clinics in Calgary offering ToeFX, a form of light therapy for treating fungi.
Besides, all of its services also conform to Alberta Podiatry Association’s fee schedule. Given this, you’d need a referral to see Alpine’s podiatrists.
Amazing, accommodating, and professional doctor, satisfying results
“Amazing and very professional doctor and very accommodating reception staffs. I had a painful ingrown toe nail and some injury on my big toe nail in past, which made it look and grow in weird way. But it was taken care by Dr. Priya Anand. She is awesome. We tried different options, but later decided to go with procedure. And the results are very satisfying. Very happy with everything here.”—Bhushan Negi
Professional and friendly staff, reasonable appointment times, clear explanations
“I can’t thank the clinic enough for fitting me in last minute before a vacation this coming weekend, and Dr. Anand coming in early to do the needed surgery so I had maximum healing time before I leave. All the staff here are super – professional, and friendly. And, unlike my former podiatrist, I can get an appointment in a reasonable time frame instead of 6 weeks – if I was lucky. Dr. Anand explained everything clearly and completely, and I’ll be back for the followup in two weeks. Can’t recommend this clinic highly enough.”—Suzan McEvoy
5. Heritage Family Foot Clinic
|SERVICES||Foot and ankle surgery, custom orthotics, shockwave therapy|
|ADDRESS||8180 Macleod Trail SE #306, Calgary, AB T2H 2B8|
|CONTACT DETAILS||(403) 253-8693|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday – Friday: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM|
Dr. Tedman Donovan of Heritage Foot Clinic is a certified podiatric surgeon and a registered provider of NIHB MS&E. Thus, his clinic can do everything, from custom orthotics to foot and ankle surgery.
Additionally, Heritage Foot Clinic does shockwave therapy to treat heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, and many other foot and ankle problems. This clinic even offers diabetic foot care and athletic support for those who need better foot maintenance.
We also like that Heritage Foot Clinic does direct insurance billing to major insurance providers. Additionally, it accepts payment via cash, cheque, and various online payment options.
These services are helpful especially since Heritage Foot Clinic doesn’t need referrals and is thus not as conforming to Alberta Health Care’s podiatry fee schedule.
In addition to this minor disadvantage, you should also know that Heritage Foot Clinic only operates during the weekdays. Should you still choose this Calgary podiatric clinic, you need only schedule an appointment online.
Proficient treatment, respectful and compassionate doctor
“As a runner and very active tennis player, Dr. Donovan has treated my plantar fasciitis very proficiently over the past 5 years. Dr. Donovan prescribed a set of custom orthotics a few years ago and has regularly reviewed their construction to ensure their efficiency to be still acceptable. Dr. Donovan has also been treating our son’s chronic ingrown toe nail over the past few years in a very respectful and compassionate manner, given Scott is Autistic
I have recommended Dr..Donovan to a number of my friends over the years given his expertise in footcare.”—Andy Czechowskyj
Attentive and friendly staff, clean and accessible clinic, thorough doctor
“I connected with this clinic due to a very painful ingrown toenail which was causing me more pain than my recent double knee replacement! I found that Dr. Donovan provided me the relief I needed while ensuring that risk of infection was very low given my knee surgeries. The staff are attentive and very friendly. The clinic is very clean, the parking is more than ample and easily accessible. Through my procedure and follow up, it was apparent my comfort was first and foremost and the time taken with me was always attentive and not rushed. I am now summer ready, healed, and pain free. Thanks Dr. Donovan and staff! This is the place to go for your foot health needs!!”—Lisa Marie Wood
