Stride Orthopaedics and Footwear


On your first visit

What to expect on your first visit with us

Your appointment will usually last 30-45 minutes.
Bring your referral prescription, as well as a few pair of your usual footwear choices.
* Wear something you can slip off like socks or short nylons; you will have to go bare feet for a while.
* OHIP does not cover the cost of custom foot orthoses. It's your responsibility to cover the cost and investigate any extended coverage you may have. We will provide you with the necessary documentation for extended health care claims.
* If we will be proceeding with custom made foot orthoses, payment in full is required prior to manufacture.  We accept cash, cheques, direct withdrawals, VISA, MasterCard and American Express. Should you decide not to proceed with custom foot orthoses, or your assessment determines that it is not warranted, an assessment fee will be charged at the end of the appointment.
* You will need to book a dispensing appointment with your treating Pedorthist to fit your orthoses and re-assess your gait. The dispensing appointment is within two weeks of your assessment, unless a third party funding agency is involved. Rush delivery is available for an extra cost.
