"Some families travel from afar to see us. Sometimes it's a few hours in the car, other times it's from across the border. Time is precious. If we can save families one extra trip, or a few hours in their day... that's what we'll try to do."

Family Man

Doting father to one teen and one nearly-teen, Jason is renowned for his fabulous rapport with children. Jason works closely with his wife, and fellow podiatrist, Sophie, to create a relaxed, and comfortable environment for the children to be in.

"... you have to connect with the child... find a way to make them comfortable. Once you've met that challenge, the rest is easy."
