Our Podiatrists

John Osborne

John is an experienced podiatrist, having worked in sports and general podiatry. He is currently at La Trobe University completing postgraduate research in heel pain (plantar fasciitis) and considering the role foot strength and rehabilitation plays with the condition.

He has a particular interest in injuries such as heel pain, shin splints, sesamoiditis, patellofemoral pain, and tendinopathies of the foot and ankle. However, John also has experience managing patients with rheumatological conditions (e.g., arthritis), blisters, ingrown toenails, general foot care, and chronic disease management such as diabetes.

Tomos Miller

Tomos is passionate and enthusiastic about all aspects of foot health with experience across a wide range of fields including the diabetic foot, in-grown toenails and toenail surgeries, sports injuries and orthotics. He graduated with a Masters of Podiatric Practice in 2018 and has had further training in dry needling and soft tissue manipulation. 

As a practitioner, Tomos understands the impact foot health can have on your quality of life and the importance of keeping you healthy, active and on your feet. Tomos is particularly good at managing conditions such as in-grown toenails, heel pain, shin splints, stress fractures and tendon pathologies.

Ingrown Toenails

We love ingrown toenails! You may not, but we do. The biggest reason is you can often get such quick resolution and satisfaction. You can walk out after the first visit feeling much improved.

In fact, we love ingrown toenails so much we have established dedicated resources to managing them. Making painful toes better is a dedicated topic of interest for the clinic.

Ingrown toenails are often chronic and difficult to manage. People are often afraid of getting them treated, or just hack away at home needlessly over and over again. Fear often exists because people think that treating it is more painful than ‘putting up with it’. It doesn’t have to be.

At Mulgrave Podiatry, we go through all the available ways of managing your painful toe and discuss your options first. And, not all of it involves surgery.

What if it is really bad?!

That is ok. If nail surgery is required then we can walk you through that process too.

We have a dedicated theatre, nursing staff and general practitioners available to cover every potential scenario.

Do I need antibiotics?

Fortunately, if you do need antibiotics then we can organise a script for you at your appointment and those details can be discussed at length with you on the day.
