Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CHIROPODIST AND PODIATRIST?

A Chiropodist is only allowed to cut toenails and remove hard skin.  A Podiatrist is a lower limb and foot specialist.  This means that their scope of practice extends to dealing with high risk diabetic patients, rheumatology, kids and nail surgery.  A Podiatrist will also be trained to complete a full biomechanical assessment of the lower limb and foot allowing for further assessment and diagnosis of chronic pain.

MY FEET ARE SUCH A MESS!! I AM SO EMBARRASSED TO SHOW THEM TO ANYBODY..

Everybody thinks they have really bad feet! However rest assure that the Podiatrist will have seen somebody with much worse feet than yourself, so please just relax and don’t worry!  Additionally remember we love feet, its what we do all day everyday!!

I WORK 5 DAYS A WEEK SO WHEN CAN YOU SEE ME?

For your convenience we run a walk in clinic every Saturday between the hours of 10am to 6pm.  Please note the walk in clinic also runs every Monday and Wednesday.  If you are restricted on time and cannot wait then feel free to call up and we can book you an appointment.  We appreciate your time is precious.

I CANNOT LEAVE THE HOUSE, IS IT STILL POSSIBLE TO GET SOME TREATMENT?

We can offer you the same treatment in the comfort of your own home.  Please contact us for further information.

CAN I PAY BY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD?

In the clinic you can pay by card or cash.  However we only accept cash when carrying out house visits. Unfortunately we no longer accept cheques.

I WANT TO BE SEEN BY THE SAME PODIATRIST ALL THE TIME. I HATE SEEING DIFFERENT PEOPLE!

This is not a problem.  We also  believe continuity of care is better if the patient sees the same Podiatrist each time they come as both will be aware of the existing treatment plan that is in place.
