Qualified Podiatrist 

Lachlan Smith

Welcome to our practice! My name is Lachlan Smith, and I am delighted to introduce myself to you. Born and raised in Auckland, with a special connection to the west Auckland community. It’s an honor to have attended all my schooling here, including university, which has shaped my dedication to serving the people of this region.
My passion lies in providing patients with the utmost care, expert treatment, and invaluable advice concerning their lower limbs. As a podiatrist, I am driven by a genuine thirst for knowledge, constantly seeking to expand my expertise to benefit each and every patient. I firmly believe that a well-informed patient is better equipped to understand their condition and actively participate in their treatment journey.
The decision to pursue Podiatry was driven by my desire to specialize in a niche area where I could make a significant impact. The community’s need for skilled Podiatrists, particularly in the care of diabetic patients. Moreover, I am passionate about giving back to my Māori heritage by bridging the gap in lower limb management knowledge within the community.
I have a strong love for working on cars and motorcycles, finding joy in the intricacies of mechanical craftsmanship. Spending quality time with my dogs and loved ones is truly invaluable to me, as is basking in the warmth of the sun, embracing the beauty of life.
