Orthotic Clinic; the first and only full time Chiropody clinic in the Southern Georgian Bay area. The clinic was first located on King Street in Midland for over ten years. In July  2014 Erin had the great pleasure of opening the doors at her new location of 263 Midland Ave right in the beautiful downtown core of Midland. 

A typical day will find Erin performing nail care and callus removal, prescribing and dispensing orthotics, providing 

diabetic foot care and performing nail procedures to remove ingrown toenails. Her main goal is to provide the highest 

quality foot care and foot education to the Southern Georgian Bay area.

Settling in this area was always the goal of the Fairbanks family. Erin and her husband Mike moved to the area in 

2002 anticipating a long and prosperous relationship with the community. Since their arrival in 2002, Erin and Mike 

have two beautiful children, Ethan and Lindsay. They are all excited about the opportunities and friendships to come.
