This letter is to notify our patients that Alicia & Colin McQuistan will no longer be treating patients on a day-to-day basis at our clinic. They will continue to be the owners of McQuistan Chiropody, but will operate from a management role, mainly overseeing operations.
Our clinic will continue to operate as usual with our support staff Kate, Selena, and Chantel. We also have two other chiropodists Benjamin Wilkinson and Sahil Emrith, who will be treating all patient concerns. You can read more about them on the following page!
If you are a previous patient and would like to continue at our clinic, Benjamin or Sahil who would be happy to see you. If you would like to see either of these chiropodists you do not need to book a new assessment for $75.00. If you have been here in the last two years, you can simply book in for a follow-up and pay the standard follow-up fee.
On the following page, please find a personalized letter from both Colin and Alicia expressing their gratitude to their patients over the years at McQuistan Chiropody.
Dear Valued Friends,
We have come to a very difficult decision to step away from our Hamilton chiropody practice and the incredible City of Hamilton. We have enjoyed treating all of you, and in some cases, we have treated three generations of families. It is very hard to say goodbye. We have opportunities and family obligations that need our attention in London, ON. Therefore, we will be withdrawing from our practice in the Hamilton office as of November 1st, 2022 for Alicia and December 1st, 2022 for Colin.
To maintain the continuing care of our patients, we feel very fortunate to be able to have Sahil Emrith and Ben Wilkinson, both Registered Chiropodists, to continue to provide care for your foot care needs. Their goal is to continue the quality of care for which you have shown us your loyalty over these many years. Our amazing support staff; Chantel, Kate, and Selena will continue on at McQuistan Chiropody.
Sahil’s understanding of foot health began with his own personal journey, as an avid sports fan and having suffered multiple ankle sprains in his life. Sahil understands the importance of being able to walk without pain or discomfort and makes it his mission to help patients walk with ease. After completing his undergraduate studies and receiving his Honors Bachelors of Science from the University of Toronto, Sahil attended the Michener Institute of Applied Health Sciences and received his Advanced Diploma in Chiropody in 2022. While at the Michener Institute, Sahil completed residencies in the public health sector where he worked with high-risk populations in the Mississauga area. He also completed a residency in the private health sector at our clinic! You may have seen him shadowing Alicia, Colin, or Ben over the past year. In his spare time, he enjoys jogging, watching sports, and taking his car out! Sahil is currently available Monday-Thursday from 9am-5pm for appointments.
Benjamin has been working with McQuistan Chiropody Professionals since November 2021. After graduating high school in his hometown of Simcoe, Ontario, Benjamin completed his training at The University of Northampton, UK where he received a Bachelor of Science in Podiatry with Honours. Benjamin has since returned to Ontario to register with the College of Chiropodists of Ontario. Benjamin is a member of both the Ontario Society of Chiropodists and Canadian Federation of Podiatric Medicine. He has completed further training in injection techniques, and medication prescription. Benjamin is passionate about all aspects of Chiropody including diabetic foot care, ingrown nail treatment, and biomechanical foot pain management.
We are confident you will be cared for and pleased with the attention to detail and caring practice of both Ben and Sahil. We encourage you to give them feedback during the transition to ensure they are meeting all your foot care needs.
We appreciate all your support and friendship over the last several years. We certainly wish you all the best in the future.
Alicia & Colin McQuistan
