Team at Hastings Podiatry Centre
Hastings Podiatry Centre is operated by Manveer (Manny) Dhillon, accredited podiatrist . Most of you will know Manny's friendly face since he joined Debbie Marks Podiatry permanently in 2013 after graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2012 with a Bachelor of Podiatry, having previously attained a Bachelor of Health Science from AUT University, New Zealand.
Debbie Marks has happily come to an arrangement for Manny to take over the business so that she can deservedly retire and Manny can continue the successful podiatry practice for many years to come. Debbie of course established the practice at our current premises in 1980 and there would hardly be anyone in Port Macquarie and surrounds that would not know Debbie. Many, many people directly benefited from Debbie's and Manny's professional caring treatment, so it was decided appropriate for Manny Dhillon and the same team to continue, now trading as Hastings Podiatry Centre.
Manny is available to provide you care and treatment in all spheres of podiatry care. You probably know Manny is known as having very soft and gentle hands.
Manny speaks English, Malay (Malaysian), Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian) and Hindi (Indian), but can you guess where Manny was born?!
As a dinkum Aussie Manny is keen golf player and has been in professional golf tournaments. Now there's a subject to talk about while you're sitting back like a queen (or king!) and he's taking care of your feet. Unless you rather discuss his hobby of remote control cars?

During 2011-2013 she worked full time in a busy private practice at Griffith, NSW including numerous surrounding rural communities including: Temora, Young, Narrandera, Leeton, Jerilderie, Berrigan, Hay and Lake Cargelligo. This opportunity allowed Skye to experience a broad range of podiatric practice, including general treatments, diabetic care, biomechanics and paediatrics. She had exposure to Aboriginal clinics in both Griffith and Hay.
Since 2014 Skye has been practicing on the NSW mid-north coast. She has a dedicated and professional approach to podiatry practice and a friendly manner.

Skye regularly enjoys attending different courses to broaden her knowledge. She is a current member of the Australian Podiatry Association.
