Meet the team:
Joanne Makarus BSc Podiatry MChSI
Having gained her degree in Podiatry from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh in 2002, Joanne went on to specialise in Diabetes, nail surgery, Biomechanics and Rheumatology with the NHS.
She enjoys every aspect of her clinical caseload from routine footcare, and woundcare and has a special interest in dermatology of the foot and lower leg.
"I have a passion for my incredible profession, and feel honoured, on a daily basis, to play a role in helping my patients maintain an active, independant, and healthy lifestyle.
Emma Scroope BSc (Hons) Podiatric Medicine
Emma qualified in Podiatric Medicine from NUIG and has volunteered twice since then in Tanzania, specifically in the area of wound care and education. She has recently returned to university to study Medicine and so works with us when she can as our Lead Foot Health Practitioner as she journeys towards her very bright future!
She is a wonderful member of the team, and is superb with every age of patient, treating everything from routine foot issues to the high-risk foot.
Brendan has a long career dealing with the public, both in his current role at the heart of our clinic - at reception - and in his previous role as an insurance broker for over 55 years!
You will not find a better phone manner, or warmer welcome in the land - an invaluable asset to the clinic and all that enter into it and we're very grateful to have him!
