Let Us Help Relieve Your Heel Pain!
Your Local Keysborough Podiatrist since 1998
I've had a great experience with the Footcare Clinic - Ruby is a great podiatrist, she's friendly, thorough and very knowledgeable. The staff here are lovely and the clinic itself is conveniently located. The whole team did a fantastic job during COVID, managing patients and keeping the workplace and waiting rooms clean and safe. Would highly recommend!
Was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and heel pain by my gp and told that shock therapy would help. After googling shock therapy, the Footcare clinic was the closest to me. Went online, made an appointment and met with Ruby Howard. It took quite a few treatments but have now been pain free for several weeks. I work in retail and used to struggle to get through my shift but after seeing Ruby, I'm now breezing through work and then going for walks everyday as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ruby and the Footcare clinic.
I googled this business and saw their ad which I was instantly drawn to. Professional website, easy to follow and book appointments, fast communication and personal communication from the podiatrist herself. Highly recommended!

Our Podiatrists are very popular so we can’t guarantee an appointment on the same day but we’ll do our best to make it happen if you contact us by phone.
We allow 40 mins for all initial consultations. This extended time will allow our Podiatrists to meet you, assess you and give you a management plan and treatment. Our subsequent appointments are generally 20 mins in duration.
Yes, Podiatrists can refer for x-rays, ultrasounds and MRIs.
We accept all private health funds. With our HICAPS terminal, you’ll be able to claim on the spot!
