Berkhamsted Foot Clinic has the perfect balance of professionalism and personality. I am always amazed how they can turn a routine appointment into an enjoyable experience through their welcoming approach.
I have been attending regular appointments with Debbie Herd for over eight years. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field - her advice on dealing with foot problems and how to avoid them in the first place, is excellent. Appointments are always enjoyable and my 64-year-old feet invariably feel wonderful afterwards. As well as being a true professional, Debbie is very caring and interested in people. Our feet are precious, they carry us through life, and I know that mine are in the best hands!
I have been a regular patient of Berkhamsted Foot Clinic for some years now and I have always found them to be very professional. The treatment I receive is always tailored to my needs and this can differ from appointment to appointment. I make it a priority to take care of my feet and I would not want to go anywhere else.
Aching feet - No more
I have been having problems with my feet for the longest time. I could hardly walk without pain due to years of wearing ill-fitting shoes. Debbie diagnosed my problem in a holistic way - got me the correct insoles as well as fixing my damaged toes. I now go on long walks all across the UK - miles of pain free bliss.
Thank you Debbie.
Thank you for all of your kindness, care and support throughout both of my son’s treatments. With very best wishes for the future.
“Thanks for everything, this treatment will allow me to achieve my goals. I don’t think I could have got this far without your support”
I would like to say what a Godsend finding the Berkhamsted Foot Clinic was for me! From the first session my feet improved beyond recognition. I had a pronounced limp owing to a problem with my big toe, which immediately became history. My feet and I continue to really look forward to our appointments! Thank you for your unerring kindness and consideration.
Debbie has been my podiatrist for the past 6 years. Her dedicated skill and excellent treatment have kept my feet and nails in tip top condition. I have an appointment every 5 weeks after which I feel I am 'walking on air'
