Dr. John Monk

Podiatrist - Mt. Pearl

I am always asked how I became interested in Podiatry as a career. Growing up in Arnold’s Cove, I don’t think I could have told you what a Podiatrist was (or even that the field of Podiatry existed), yet here I am.

I first became interested in Podiatry about a year before graduating from Memorial University with my Bachelor of Kinesiology. My mother, who has been diabetic since I was five years old, was told by her family doctor to see a Podiatrist. Her family doctor told her that foot health was everything for a diabetic – without healthy feet, it would likey result in the loss of her mobility and her independence.

That comment from her family doctor stuck with me. After graduating from Memorial University I continued my education in Ontario with stops in Toronto and Ottawa before returning to my home province to start my career as a Podiatrist.

As a Podiatrist, I spent my first 3 years in Clarenville, and the last 4 years with my amazing colleagues at The Podiatry Associates where I get to assist my clients in maintaining a healthy lifestyle by ensuring they have healthy feet.

I currently live in Conception Bay South (where the weather is always better!) with my girlfriend and our 2.5 year old rescue dog Phoebe and passionately cheer on my beloved Montreal Canadiens.
