Our centres provide the full scope of clinical podiatry including comprehensive foot assessments, various treatments and surgery.
Whatever your age, foot pain can drastically affect your quality of life. At My FootDr South Hobart — Ispahan (formerly Ispahan Podiatry and Footwear), we understand how important it is to keep you on your feet whether you’re a seasoned sports person, or just need to get from A to B.
We specialise in treating overuse injuries, sports injuries and biomechanical alignment problems that may also cause pain up the chain at the shin, knee, hip and back. We can also help treat common foot conditions from corns, calluses, ingrown toenails and skin conditions, to plantar fasciitis, bunions, tendonitis diabetic foot conditions and other lower limb pathologies
Our team of Podiatrists may prescribe orthotic therapy to correct alignment. Orthotics are custom-designed and fabricated in our on-site orthotic laboratory to suit your individual needs. We also use digital video gait analysis to aid in diagnosing the biomechanical causes of painful foot conditions.
About My FootDr Ispahan Podiatry Centre
Ispahan Podiatry was established by well-known Hobart Podiatrist Clive Browne in 1994. The practice takes its name from the building Ispahan, built in the 1930’s by Iranian doctor Tom Gaha.
Principal Podiatrist Chris Angel has been a practitioner at Ispahan since moving to Hobart in 2001. When former owner Clive retired in 2007, Chris took over the practice and continues to strive for excellence.
In 2017, Ispahan Podiatry entered a new era to become My FootDr Ispahan. In addition to full podiatry services, patients and customers now have access to our great comfort fashion and orthotic-friendly footwear range, conveniently situated at our practice.
Our friendly staff are trained to help you find the right shoes for your needs and ensure the correct fit.

Having our toes suddenly turn red can be alarming - especially when we can’t pinpoint a specific cause. Alongside the redness, you may also experience some pain, swelling, and wearing your regular work shoes or joggers may now feel uncomfortable. As the cause of the redness can range from problems with our skin and blood vessels to problems with our muscles and bones, our podiatry team has shared the top five causes of red toes that we see and treat here at My FootDr.
We all know and have experienced that uncomfortable prickling, tingling, numbing sensation that we call pins and needles countless times - but why do we get pins and needles? And what can we do to help make the feeling go away so we can get on with our day?
Today, the My FootDr team are sharing the causes, considerations and treatments for pins and needles in the feet, which we medically refer to as paraesthesia - and there may be a lot more to it than you think!
If you have flat feet, knowing which insoles are right for your feet can be difficult and confusing. There are so many types out there, which may leave you with a lot more questions than answers, like:
How do I tell the difference between the different types of insoles - they all look the same?
Which are the best insoles for me and my feet?
How do I know if the insoles I have now are right for me?
Is my foot or leg pain because of my flat feet?
Am I going to get foot problems because of my flat feet - and would insoles help?
These are great and valid questions, and our podiatrists have set out to answer them all by explaining what having flat feet really mean for you - and where insoles fit into the picture.
