Do You Have Painful Cracked Heels?
We can fix thick, painful cracked heels and skin in just ONE session in a hygienic environment using sterile instruments.
I was experiencing pain to my left heel for a while when walking and it was gradually getting worse. I attended The Footcare Clinic & saw Will. He advised & gave me a course of laser therapy together with taping of my foot. I now have had less pain over the course of treatment & feel that this treatment has been very effective. Walking is now enjoyable again. I would highly recommend this Podiatry Clinc to others.

The Footcare Clinic in Keysborough has been fantastic. The service of both the podiatrists and admin staff has been smooth, efficient, easy to work with, and creates a helpful, welcoming atmosphere so you know you're being looked after. After an injury in my teenage years, I've been bouncing between podiatrist clinics for over a decade and have received everything from high quality orthotics to very basic "get the job done" types. In that time, I've also been treated by a number of podiatrists and their way of operating. So it is with a certain degree of experience and a very high degree of confidence that I can say this: if you need a podiatrist, there is no better place to look than The Footcare Clinic. I am extremely happy with my orthotics, the level of input and care from my podiatrist and the attention to detail throughout the process. They were respectful of my needs, thorough all throughout the process of designing my orthotic inserts and provided comprehensive information on the shoes that would be best for me. They were available whenever I needed input on if a certain shape of sole is okay for me, if I would be receiving enough support from the structure of this particular shoe, and other questions I ran into it. Very easy to get in touch with. If anything was wrong with the shoes I'd purchased once my podiatrist and I spoke about them, I had all the information I needed to find the right alternative to suit my individual needs. I can't praise this clinic highly enough, so if you need orthotics, whether for substantial or minor problems, or even if you just have some back pain and want to see if your feet are making it worse, definitely give The Footcare Clinic a look!

Warm, friendly and receptive service all round. Impressive & detailed foot scanning technology, and articulate and easy to understand explanation of feet issues... Kim was fantastic and really took her time with me. Have been to a few podiatrists, and these guys are the best for sure!
