Have painful feet made you less active? As a doctor of podiatric medicine Cary Collis treats common foot problems, helping to relieve pain and lead a more active lifestyle. Located near the Coxwell Subway Station in Toronto, we treat people's feet from across the Greater Toronto Area.
If you have foot pain, we can help you rediscover your lost mobility by treating foot conditions such as:
