Podiatrists are health care professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs.

I am a member of the British Chiropodist & Podiatrist Association and is Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. This means that I commit to continued professional development training and complete regular training to keep my skills and knowledge up to date from a medical and technological point of view.
I qualified as a Podiatrist in 2003 and have continued to study and now specialise in sport injuries, biomechanics and prescription made orthotics. I also qualified to perform nail surgery under local anaesthetic.
I opened my surgery in South Woodham Ferrers, in Essex, in April 2003. It has proven to be very successful and is still growing. I provide a friendly service in a caring environment.
I work with my patient’s references in mind, but also have expertise in holistic treatments, seeing peoples problems from wider preventative perspective, rather than simple curing ailments. I am always happy to discuss other issues and concerns that may be impacting on
the healing process.
Late-arriving or no-show patients may be asked to reschedule or charged a cancellation fee.
The first step is to record your details such as name, address, d.o.b and G.P.
You will be asked to share your medical history, details of any current medications you are on and also past injuries or operation you may have had. (If you are taken any medication, please bring your most recent prescription with you).
This will be followed by a discussion of your complaint and a full examination of the feet.
Pulses of the lower limb will be taken with a doppler to monitor the blood flow in your lower limb and to early detect and prevent vascular diseases or some heart disease. After your consent I will proceed with the treatment.
