Isn’t it time you treated your feet?

“I have been a client with Damian for a number of years. I am a Type 2 Diabetic and visit every eight weeks, Damian takes very good care of my feet, and keeps me up to date with information on the care of my feet, including ill fitting shoes. I would recommend him to all of my friends.”

K. Johnson, Hull

“My feet always feel smooth as silk after visiting Footfriend”

Mrs Hatfield of Leconfield

“Very experienced. Will definitely be going back.”

Diane Ayre

“Toes all fine! Thank for a first class job.”

Mr.Hazell of Shiptonthorpe

“That feels lovely, it’s like walking on air.”

Mrs Cooper of South Cave

“I have been visiting Footfriend now for over 12 years . During this time, I have found the standard of care and service to be first class . As I get older , I find visiting a professional very superior to trying to care for my feet and toes myself.”

John Bullock, Beverley

“Since childhood I have suffered from foot problems and have been to several chiropodists with varying degrees of success. When my last chiropodist retired he recommended Damian Johns in Beverley. My wife and I have now been patients of Damian for over 10 years and we are very pleased with him. His practice provides a wide range of foot care including excellent footwear, foot supports and referrals for further specialized foot treatment. The reception staff are very welcoming and are able to offer appointments to suit patients lifestyle. I would recommend anyone with foot concerns to consult Damian for help and advice.”

B. Precious, Cottingham

“Can I just thank you & Vicky for being so nice today at my Mother's appointment. She was 'over the moon' with the service she received & even went shopping in Beverley & bought some new shoes! Thanks again, we will be back.”

Trudy Sinclair

“Damian and Vicky are fantastic and sorted out my very painful foot. I've used their services for quite some time and they never disappoint. The ladies at Reception are fab too and we always have a laugh. Highly recommended.”

Maria Bertocco

“I just wanted to say thank you for the competent and friendly treatment I received on Thursday last week. My feet haven't felt so comfortable in ages and the squidgy thing for between my toes is really very comfortable and will hopefully keep the corns at bay. It shouldn't be a surprise but it's amazing how much happier I feel with less painful and uncomfortable feet! Thanks once again.”
