Dr. Tarek H. El-Onsi has been in practice in Quebec since 2002. He pursued his undergraduate training in Biology at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario. In 1998, he began his medical training at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (TUSPM) in Philadelphia where he graduated in 2002. He started working in the field upon his arrival in Quebec, later opening his own private practice in 2003 in the heart of downtown Montreal.
In 2011, Dr. Tarek El-Onsi started also practicing in Pointe-Claire, and has since relocated his downtown practice to the West Island. He welcomes his patients from his downtown clinic to continue their foot care in the West Island location, and has opened convenient weekend hours with a location right off highway 40 with ample free parking. Dr El-Onsi offers all his patients this convenience of appointments on Saturdays because he understands that sometimes it’s not easy to take time off work.
A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, also known as a Podiatric physician or Podiatrist, is a physician who specializes in the care of the foot and its related disorders. A podiatrist is concerned with the examination, diagnosis and prevention of foot ailments and their treatment by mechanical, physical, and surgical means. He is also concerned in the diagnosis of problems affecting the musculo-skeletal system of the feet; in other words, problems of posture, alignment, deformities and bone deviations located in the foot structure which in turn influences the upper articulations(knees, hips, back).
