Special interest in dermatology/dermoscopy
‘The orthotics you have made for me have given me my life back. I have no more pain in my feet, can go out walking again for pleasure and I cannot bear not to wear them. The last thing I do before leaving the house is check that my orthotics are in my shoes! Thank you so much’
‘I hobbled into the surgery, now I feel like I am walking out on air!’
‘I can’t believe that all the terrible pain I used to have from my ingrown toenail has finally gone. I wish I had been to see you and had the operation years ago. I can even wear my high heels again (sorry, shouldn’t say that to my podiatrist!). Thank you, thank you, thank you!’
‘I was too embarressed to show my feet to anyone for years, I thought they were so ugly. You reassured me and made me feel comfortable throughout my treatment and now they look so much better!’
‘I limped into the surgery four weeks ago with such pain in my bunions I could barely walk but after four weeks of marigold therapy, I have no pain at all and I completed a three mile walk at the weekend. I’m going to dance out!’
‘It’s so nice that you can come and see me at my flat, I really look forward to your visits’
