There is no such thing as a pediatrist.

You may be right, Pedro. However Mr. Google has a definition for both.

 pediatrist - a specialist in the care of babies. baby doctor, paediatrician, pediatrician. medical specialist, specialist - practices one branch of medicine.

However A podiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating the feet. ... They are sometimes called podiatric physicians or, when qualified to perform surgery for such problems, foot and ankle surgeons.

Are you looking for a Podriatist, foot doctor, or Pediatrition, children doctor?

When correcting someone's spelling, it's a good idea to pay attention to your own 🙂

It's pediatrician, not pediatrition.

Gosh, Lakeside7. It looks like it had been full for 10 or more days. I just blindly deleted 25 of my 50 messages in my mailbox.  Apparently one is only allowed 50 messages saved in their message inbox. 

Thanks for letting me know so that I could delete 50% of the mail therein  :)

I went to Doctor George, a podiatry clinic last month and was pleasantly surprised.  I was dreading having an ingrown toenail taken care of and had been putting it off thinking I could take care of it myself.  The facilities were extremely clean, the therapist knowledgeable and gentle and effective.  I actually felt like it was a spa day....

There are no colleges of Podiatry medicine in Mexico, hence there are no Podiatrist in Mexico.  This according to my medical doctor. There are people, and some Orthopedic doctors who specialize in feet who can help you.

There is no medical doctor at Doctor George only technicians to mess with your feet.A slight step above what you would get at a saloon. Went there when they still had an office in Chapala. I could have gone to a saloon for what they did with my nails and scraping away some calluses  My wife has started having a foot pain problem so she went to Jorge Gonzales Orthopedic Surgeon who recommended a type of insert which she got at the med store on Degollado, Chapala and has had no pain walking since.

Did you also get a tequila shot at the "Saloon"? May be better to try a Salon next time, but I'd bet not as fun.😉
