About Irving Luftig B.Sc., DPM

After graduating from University of Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Science in 1976 , I went on to obtain my Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine / Case Western Reserve University in 1980. I then returned to Toronto for a residency-preceptor program , working with Dr Hamilton Hall MD (orthopedics) , as well as Dr Ricky Schachter MD (chief of Dermatology) , and Dr Glenn Copeland (chief of Podiatric Medicine) at Womens College Hospital , University Health Network in Toronto . I started my private practice in Hamilton in 1981 , and then formed a second office in Mississauga at Credit Valley Hospital with Dr Steve Rosenfeld MD (orthopedic surgery ) . I try to stay active and still love playing ice hockey and tennis 3 or 4 times every week. Although I have been practising for 43 years , I still enjoy coming into the office every day , helping my patients with their foot problems.
