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.

It’s Australian Tradies National Health Month and to help support tradie health and encourage a healthy workplace through injury prevention management, our podiatrists are talking about your work boots!
The shoes you wear every day become the ground you walk on and can influence your risk of injury and pain. We’ve put together this safety boot fitting guide to help you use your work boots to not only protect your feet from hazards - but also keep you moving well and feeling great on your feet.
Tradies - you feel exhausted at the end of your workday, and we get it. Many of you spend a large portion of your day on your feet, moving around, climbing stairs or ladders, operating machinery and generally tiring your body.
Every step you take can result in significant forces passing through your feet and legs - like a load of up to three times your body weight on your knees. So, it’s no surprise that there are approximately 190 serious workers’ compensation claims made every day - an incidence rate of three times higher than any other occupation.
