Dr. A. K. Randhawa, podiatrist, was
born in Burnaby and raised in East Vancouver. She went to McBride
Elementary and then Gladstone Secondary School before enrolling at The University of British Columbia
where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biology degree.
Dr. Randhawa always had a passion for helping people and from an early age knew she enjoyed working with her hands. Considering this it became clear that podiatry was a perfect fit for her!
While she wanted to stay in Canada she knew there was no school in Canada and would have to go to the USA to further her education. It quickly became apparent to her that the most respected of all podiatry school's was Temple University. A large university in Philadelphia Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine was Dr. Randhawa's home for 4 years as she worked to earn her Doctor Of Podiatric Medicine Degree.
Following graduation in 2008 Dr. Randhawa was honored to be accepted to a 3 year residency program in foot and ankle surgery based out of Los Angeles, California. Dr. Randhawa experienced some of the best podiatry training in the world over the course of these 3 years. She spent 17 months at Kaiser Permanente - a leading hospital organization in the USA well known for training some of the best doctor's in the world. She was also fortunate to be able to spend time at the Veterans Administration
Hospital in Loma Linda where she had extensive training in wound care as well as further surgical and medical training. Fortunately Dr. Randhawa's residency training was very well rounded and included time spent in the offices of some highly successful and well
trained podiatrists throughout the Southland area.
Upon the completion of her residency training Dr. Randhawa was invited to join a premier private practice in Los Angeles. Though she enjoyed her time in LA, she constantly missed Vancouver and in December 2012 made the move back home.
Since returning to Vancouver Dr. Randhawa has established Metro Vancouver Podiatry and quickly become very active in the community. She writes a weekly article called Focus on Feet which is published in the English language newspaper The Indo-Canadian Voice. She regularly appears on radio stations such as RJ1200 and RedFM to discuss the basics of foot and ankle care. In April of 2013 Dr. Randhawa was elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the BC Podiatric Medical Association and has become a Clinical Director of the Fit Feet Special Olympics program. Most importantly Dr. Randhawa has been focused on heeling feet all over the Metro Vancouver area!
