Unlike most podiatrists, we do not charge any consultation fees which can be as much as £250 per visit. We keep a record of all our successful and unsuccessful treatments, and we are pleased to have a success rate of over 92%. If however, you fall into the 8% where the orthotic we prescribed do not work, we are happy to change or modify them and continue to work with you to get a positive outcome all free of charge. If we still can’t achieve the outcome we want, we will gladly refund the total price paid. We only charge the re-moulding fee for children under the age of 16, but we offer a free exchange of their orthotics as they grow out of their existing ones.
