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.”

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.”

Gill Morrell, Skidby

“Pleased as punch with the outcome after 4 treatments to remove a verruca using the Swift technology used at Footfriend in Wednesday Market in Beverley. I had been in some discomfort with a persistent verruca for a considerable time and had tried other treatments without success. Having been assessed as a suitable patient by Damian, the lead podiatrist , I was delighted to proceed with the treatment. The treatment consisted of using a probe applied to the skin and although there existed some minor discomfort and a stinging sensation this ended almost immediately after the treatment terminated. I would not hesitate to recommend Damian and his team at Footfriend as the first port of call to assess suitability for this microwave therapy. My only regret is that I had not started the treatment earlier to remove my unwanted lesion! Thanks again for your professionalism.”

blackened toenail

Listen up Walkers and Runners – ‘Black Toenails’ are Preventable!

At the end of a long walk or run, you may notice that a toenail has turned black, blue, or dark red and is getting painful. This change of colour and pain is due to bleeding under your nail, which is also known as a “subungual hematoma”. This can also happen if you drop something heavy on your toe or kick/stub your toe against something hard.

Summer’s Ending… Now is the time to talk about chilblains!

Chilblains are a very common condition affecting the old and young alike and they have no quick fix, but the good news is that with some preparation they can be prevented in many (not all) people. If you are a regular sufferer following the advice below may not totally prevent you getting chilblains but I’m certain it will reduce the severity and number of chilblains you get.
