At Pride Plus we recognise that our feet are the unique foundation on which we build our busy lives. When things go awry and we develop aches, pain and other complications in our feet, ankle, knees and back our mood, health, and the sanity of those around us starts to suffer. Our mission is to keep people as active, healthy and happy as possible.
At Pride Podiatry we use the latest technology as well as established evidence based practice to provide the highest level of care to meet all your needs. We take great pride in you achieving your goals and maximising your overall health.

Tanya understands the importance of having happy feet that are forgiving of life’s strenuous activities – from navigating the uneven cobblestoned streets of Europe, to trekking with the dog through the rugged local bush tracks of Emerald and surrounds. She values a holistic approach to foot care and enjoys encompassing all areas of Podiatry in her work, such as general podiatry care, diabetic foot management and prevention, ingrown toenails, sports injuries and paediatrics. She also values the role of footwear and having the right fit, and encourages footwear assessments as part of developing a comprehensive treatment plan.
