Sahil Emrith B.Sc.(Hons), D.Ch.

Registered Chiropodist

Growing up as a lifelong sports fan and having played multiple sports throughout high school, I recognized the importance of foot health. The ability to walk without pain or discomfort is something that most people take for granted. Once you lose that ability, your quality of life is diminished. I have made it my goal to improve my patient’s quality of life by providing them with exceptional foot care.

After completing my undergraduate studies and receiving my Honors Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto, I attended the Michener Institute of Applied Health Sciences and received my Advanced Diploma in Chiropody in 2022. While at the Michener Institute, I completed residencies in the public health sector where I worked with a severely at-risk population. I also completed a residency in the private health sector which I ultimately fell in love with and decided to pursue after completing my post-graduate studies.
