What is the Referrer Portal?

Our Referral Portal is your online source for foot and leg injury Clinical Treatment Guides (CTGs), including treatment protocols and tests, demonstration videos, and clinical resource downloads. We want to share our expertise in treating the most common foot and leg conditions that you will see in your clinics, to empower you to make the best decisions for your patients.

Zoe Porter - Podiatrist

Zoe is a Queensland University of Technology graduate with a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry). Her clinical expertise is in diagnosing and fixing foot and leg pain. Zoe combines a caring and personalised patient care approach with the latest research and clinical advances, and this makes her a valuable part of the Pioneer Podiatry team and an asset to our patients and local referrers.

Zoe is trained in providing unique and specialised treatments, including Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (an advanced treatment modality for tendon injuries). She is also a firm advocate of multi-disciplinary team based care, and has a keen interest and expertise in sports medicine.

Zoe grew up in Moranbah, making her very familiar to Mackay and surrounds. Some experience earlier in life working in mining has also given her an appreciation of the stress that type of work can place on your feet.

In her spare time she enjoys the outdoors, from camping alongside the amazing local coastline, to water-skiing with friends.
