Abbott Foot and Ankle Clinic has been a pillar of the Collingwood community since its move to the area in July 1995. The journey of the clinic, led by dedicated Chiropodist Tony Abbott, is a testament to hard work, perseverance, and a commitment to providing top-notch foot and ankle care.

Tony began his professional journey in Collingwood at the local hospital, where he dedicated eight years to serving patients. Starting with just one small treatment room, he gained invaluable experience and built a solid foundation for his future endeavors.
In August 2003,Tony took a significant step forward by opening his own practice at the Medical building on Erie Street. This new venture began with just two treatment rooms, reflecting his modest but ambitious start in private practice. As his reputation for excellent patient care grew, so did his need for more space.
Five years later, in response to an increasing patient load, Tony purchased a house on St Marie Street, expanding his practice to three treatment rooms. This move marked another milestone in the clinic’s growth, but it was clear that even more space would soon be necessary to serve the people of Collingwood and Georgian Bay.

Recognizing the need for a facility that could accommodate further expansion, Tony made a bold decision to move to his current location. The new clinic was a blank slate, allowing for a professionally designed space that catered to the clinic’s needs and anticipated future growth. This foresight has paid off immensely over the years.
In the summer of 2023, always looking to innovate and improve patient care, Tony invested in the advanced Cryos Orthotic system. This state-of-the-art technology has enhanced the clinic’s ability to provide specialized custom 3D orthotic solutions, further cementing its reputation for cutting-edge treatment. Additionally, in 2022, the clinic introduced an online booking system, streamlining appointment scheduling and improving overall patient convenience.

Now, after 13 years in this well-designed and expansive location, Abbott Foot and Ankle Clinic boasts five treatment rooms and an onsite lab to repair and modify foot orthotics. This growth has enabled Chiropodist Tony Abbott and his skilled team to efficiently offer the best available treatments to an ever-increasing number of patients each year. To Tony’s surprise, the practice continues to grow month over month and year over year, thanks to the outpouring of support from the community. Tony is immensely thankful for this support, which has been instrumental in the clinic’s success.
The success of Abbott Foot and Ankle Clinic and its team is a shining example of how dedication to patient care and continuous improvement can lead to remarkable growth and sustained excellence. As the clinic continues to evolve, it remains committed to its mission of providing the highest standard of foot and ankle care to the Collingwood community, Georgian Bay, and beyond.
