Practice Profile

Starting out in 2010 as a sole-operated practice in a tiny space within a physiotherapy clinic in Mt. Dandenong, MR Podiatry was formed. Initially taking over the position from Rachel Crockart, who was going on maternity leave, Michael commenced working in the Dandenong Ranges.


After two years, the practice continued to grow and needed a larger premises to allow better service for our clients in the hills community. After The Hills Medical was given a significant refurbishment, we moved rooms to their practice in 2012.


Since then, we haven’t looked back. While continuing to service the local hills community, Michael was looking for another challenge. The opportunity to take over the existing practice of Michael Randles Foot Clinic was offered at the end of 2017. Thus in April 2018, MR Podiatry Mooroolbark and Olinda was born.

Michael strived to continue the great local work of the previous clinic under the new banner of MR Podiatry, whilst also looking forward to the challenge of new patients. Having achieved the goal to grow and become a part of the local community, including helping with local sports clubs, Michael again found himself searching for an additional challenge.


This presented a significant logistical challenge, as well as meaning there were now five podiatrists working under different banners.  The difficult decision was then made to sell the Olinda clinic to Summit Podiatry.  This has allowed the group of clinics to continue providing quality community based care, as was always intended.  However, this meant another name change was necessary.  The name change has streamlined our clinics, and includes all 5 podiatrists and admin staff under the same banner of Eastern Podiatry Group.  We continue to provide the same quality care, and community engagement we always have in Mooroolbark and Belgrave.Along with our wonderful staff, the future continues to look bright and full of energy for Eastern Podiatry Group.
