About Leon

Leon Kozliner was the previous owner and manager of Hunt Club Foot Care since 2001, now called Ottawa Custom Orthotics.  Leon decided to retired in July 2018.

From Leon: Nothing satisfies me more than watching a patient walk out the door free of pain – and then return a month later for their follow-up appointment and have great news to share about their improved quality of life.
To help you get there, I provide one-stop foot care – including evaluating your feet, manufacturing and dispensing your orthotics, fitting and adjusting your orthotics as necessary and ensuring you have proper footwear.
Excellence in customer service has always been paramount and when people come to me with concerns about pain and questions about orthotics and shoes, I am always keen to help. I design solutions to make people’s feet comfortable and in so doing, put a smile on their face.
As a pedorthist, I have helped people from the ages of 12 to 80 who have suffered from chronic pain in their feet, ankles, legs, knees, hip, and lower back that was aggravated by physical activity.
If you need orthotics and are suffering, come on in and see me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become as pain free as possible!
