About Us

Roslyn Podiatry is conveniently located in the heart of Roslyn Village in the picturesque Old Fire Station Building only 3min drive from the Octagon.

The clinic was opened by Lauren Farnden in December 2008 in order to provide podiatry services to those many people living in the hill suburbs of Dunedin. The clinic is close to the town centre which suits those needing to get away from work for a quick appointment or those dropping in on the way home.

Roslyn Podiatry is less than 10min drive from 7 high schools plus many primary and intermediate schools and is open on Wednesdays until 7pm to suit those who need to come after school or work.
