David has been practicing as a Podiatrist since graduating from University of South Australia in 1995. Since then David has worked in Queensland, where he ran his own Podiatry practice for 17 years. After a sojourn of several months travel, both in Australia and overseas, David and his wife Victoria, were ready for a tree change, and what better place than the earthy atmosphere of Tasmania, so he joined Daniel Lewis Podiatry in early 2017.
Over the years David has developed many Podiatry skills and has really enjoyed the opportunity to help others with their feet. During his career David has treated many conditions. It is common for people who can’t reach their feet to have a Podiatrist attend their nails. But the nails can develop unpleasant conditions such as fungal infections and in-grown toe nails, which require professional care. Skin conditions such as corns, calluses, and cracked heels are also common conditions that Podiatrists attend to. ‘We treat these conditions everyday and with skill and the right instrument we can alleviate the problem quickly and effortlessly’. David also helps people suffering from foot conditions related to Diabetes and other medical conditions. Education and awareness are key factors to help people learn to cope with Diabetes. A change in footwear and soft Orthotics can also make a difference. Podiatrists aren’t just limited to these common conditions but have become experts in diagnosing and treating aliments manifesting with symptoms of foot, heel or knee pain. Alignment and biomechanical issues can be the underlying cause associated with painful symptoms. With experience, knowledge, and a comprehensive assessment, a great treatment plan can be implemented to ensure the best outcome.
David’s professional skills include a background in Aged Care, Massage and Holistic medicine, including reflexology, and acupuncture. He has also developed an interest in the welfare of others less fortunate and was instrumental in organising a ‘Footcare project’ in Peru in 2010, and again in 2015.
David also has personal interests in bush walking, photography and travel. He is outgoing, friendly and embraces his new community in Hobart and the surrounding areas.
Tracy McMenamin is a qualified podiatrist with more than 30 years’ experience in the industry. She completed her podiatric studies at the Central Institute of Technology (CIT) in Wellington, New Zealand.
Before moving to Tasmania in 1988, Tracy plied her trade at a private practice in Melbourne. Since then, she has worked within the public health system, geriatric mental health, and cared for people with disabilities.
For Tracy, podiatry isn’t just work; it’s about the relationships, and being able to see the positive impact good footcare health has on patient’s lives.
“For me, it has always been about the connection with people. Everyone has a story to tell and I feel humbled that I get to listen, to share and to give back to them as much as they give to me.”
With her wealth of knowledge, Tracy specialises in routine podiatry, diabetic foot care, and aged care.
“I particularly enjoy working with older people,” said Tracy.
“Providing relief from foot discomfort helps my patients to be more comfortable, which in turn assists them to remain mobile as long as possible.
As complex structures of bones, muscles and ligaments which carry us around, our feet are well used daily. We only get one pair of feet, and they do an amazing job over the years. If you have trouble looking after your feet yourself or if you have foot pain, then see a podiatrist. It could change your life.”
Tracy offers a range of Podiatry services including;
Corn and Callus Removal
Diabetic Foot Assessment
Maree has the honour of being the first podiatrist to employ Daniel when he graduated, and she loves how life often goes full circle, now working with Daniel in his practice and the brilliant Podiatry team. She is a senior, highly experienced Podiatrist, graduating in Queensland, with a distinction in Podiatry whilst also attaining additional qualifications in Remedial Massage and Body Therapies along the way.
Maree genuinely cares about her patients and will always treat you with respect, readily discussing all your foot and lower limb care options. Her goal is to educate and work with patients on both the complaint and the treatment possibilities. This enables working together to implement a treatment program that addresses patient goals and needs. The longer consultations, that Kingston Beach Health Centre offers, facilitate the comprehensive assessment that underlies Maree’s method.
Outside of the clinic, Maree loves to travel, bushwalks, mountain bikes, belly dances+, dances, gyms, paddleboards, and enjoys yoga. She is also known to undertake the odd renovation job. She is passionate about continuing professional education, believing it is an absolute must in delivering the best possible outcomes for you. She has a special interest in healthy aging, maintaining mobility as people age, and diabetes. Her own recreational pursuits and experience provide a personal knowledge base on how to use these activities to maintain your mobility.
Maree looks forward to working with you. She takes pride in always providing her best.
