Fantastic service and very pleasant inside. Reena is a brilliant podiatrist - she immediately spotted what was causing my pain on the soles of each foot. She patiently sorted it out with her instruments (no pain) and I walked out completely satisfied.

I came for the first time to feet by pody and Shaho really welcomed me in, made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He found the problem and explained the science behind where a corn comes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone with feet problems. I feel like a new man 5 star 👍👍👍

I cannot recommend Feet by Pody enough! They successfully treated and got rid of a longstanding and persistent verruca that I had had for >5 years. The cryotherapy treatment I had was painless and the prices for appointments/ treatments are very reasonable given the high level of care you receive. Huge thanks to Reena Patel who was the chiropodist I have been seeing most recently. She was super professional, efficient and clearly knows her stuff! Thank you again!

Very helpful, informative and kind service. Varsha laid out the treatment options, explained the procedure and aftercare fully, and above all was very kind throughout. Would highly recommend!

The treatment was smooth and effective. Varsha was really kind and patient despite my hearing issues. She was also very reassuring during the sessions. It was a relief to hear that my toes are looking a lot better during the assessment visit. I would definitely recommend her! Thank you again for the help 🙂

Exceptional care AND (very importantly) excellent aftercare! Basically I can say they were absolutely impeccable in their professionalism and care. I absolutely recommend them. I called on a Tuesday to ask for an emergency appointment. I received a call back immediately by the podiatrist (not an assistant). The podiatrist took great care with the prior history, and offered an urgent appointment on Wednesday. We decided to remove the nail. The surgery was painless, and the aftercare support brilliant. - I was given a What’sUp number to reach the podiatrist for any concerns. I sent her some photos and received immediate responses. I was very impressed, very impressed indeed. - The price included only one after-surgery appointment but they gave me two and did not flinch about it.
