Saint-Hyacinthe podiatry clinic

The Saint-Hyacinthe podiatry clinic was founded by Dr. Jean-François Rivard – a podiatry physician with an impressive professional background. A former clinical nurse, Dr. Rivard is a pioneer in the field of foot imaging and the production of plantar orthoses in Quebec. 

As part of his practice, Dr. Rivard has also founded a plantar orthoses laboratory, to let his patients benefit from the greatest precision and the highest standard in orthoses on the market. He has also previously occupied the post of president of the Quebec Association of Podiatrists.

The clinic also relies on the expertise of podiatrist Dr. Marc-Antoine Sylvestre – a local of Saint-Hyacinthe as well. Dr. Sylvestre’s practice has spanned several hospitals across Quebec, which has allowed him to greatly enrich his experience. Interested in biomechanics and sports podiatry, he also holds a certification in foot and ankle ultrasound.

The trio is completed by podiatrist Dr. Pierre-Alexandre Tellier. A young practitioner who graduated in 2019, Dr. Tellier is particularly interested in diabetic wound care and minor foot surgery. Himself an avid athlete, he fully understands the reality of active people and knows how to properly assess the mechanics of their movements. Invested and meticulous, he will treat you with great care and professionalism.
