Mission + Community

It takes more than a degree to run a successful health care practice that will provide opportunities for the enrichment of life, family, and community. Here are the guiding principles that we believe in, practice each day, and encourage others to share.

“We are committed to providing exceptional foot care to people of all ages in order to serve the growing and diverse needs of our community.”

Mission
The four cornerstone values of Werkman, Boven & Associates | Chiropodist:
  1. Each patient is treated with dignity and respect
  2. Each patient is educated in order to understand their diagnosis and treatment options
  3. Each patient truly believes they have received exceptional value along with exceptional footcare
  4. Each patient feels they are understood

We were the first Ontario Chiropodist to implement a Chartless Patient System with Tracker in 2009.
