“Dear Mr Franklin,

I would like to put down in writing my gratitude to you.

As you know back in November my GP referred me to A/E with a suspected torn Achilles-tendon which subsequently turned out to be a strained Achilles-tendon. However I was in excruciating pain and for about 6 weeks and had to wear an inflatable strapped boot with a raised heel which isolated and supported my lower leg.

Two weeks after the Consultant gave me the all clear the pain started to return and I was again unable to put much weight back onto my foot.

I was informed of your Clinic by my husband. I made an appointment and subsequently at my assessment you recommended and measured me for specialised shoe inserts. Having worn these for a short while the pain was relieved and has now gone completely. Your simple explanation that my choice of shoes added to the fact that I had been walking incorrectly for such a long time now makes sense to me.

Sincere thanks,

Mrs A.”

Dear Mr Franklin,

I wanted to write to thank you for the excellent care you have provided me since I started attending your podiatry clinic a few months ago. Not only are you clearly very compassionate and patient-centred, you always take the time to explain your assessment and treatment options. I never feel any appointment is rushed or that anything is too much trouble - even when you clearly have a full list such as the pre-Christmas period!

My recent visit only brought home your deft injection technique, your calm manner and your attention to detail. Your care of my diabetic feet has made a tangible positive improvement to my quality of life. I can see why your online reviews by other patients under your care speak so highly of you and the clinical care you provide.

I hope you find you and yours have a lovely Christmas and my feet and I look forward to my next appointment in the New Year.

Yours gratefully,

Dr T.

”I have had a 34 year problem with a very painful verruca which has previously been treated with varying degrees of success. Graeme’s treatment has been both effective and pain free, resulting in my feet feeling and looking better than they have in years. Thank you Graeme.”

Graeme Franklin is an excellent Podiatrist. Following my GP’s referral to the NHS Podiatry Clinic at the Shrublands Poditry Clinic with a debilitating “CORN” where treatment was minimal and totally ineffective. My walking activity became so painful- self amputation did briefly cross my mind.

Finding a good reputable Podiatrist in GORLESTON wasn’t as straightforward as may be assumed. “Oils 4 Life” on the Hefreys Industrial Estate is not the Most obvious location - but is in fact an excellent accessible location once you find it!

Graeme Franklin achieved exillerating pain relief on my “FIRST visit. Repeat appointments have continued to reduce the offending “Corn” to give complete walking confidence and really is “money well spent” !

Hi Graeme,

I am over the moon! I didn't think in my wildest dreams the verrucas would be this good after one operation.

My husband and I have completed foot treatment by Graeme at his Norwich Clinic. Both have been successful.

My husband had a long standing stubborn verruca, that defied various treatments elsewhere. It took a few visit to Graeme to rectify the issue. After many years of a very painful foot, he can now walk unheeded.

I had ingrowing toenail removal to both toes. This too has been successful and much less painful to have done than I thought. Now they have healed it's wonderful to be able to wear nice shoes again and be comfortable...

I would have no hesitation recommending Graeme for any aspect of foot care. He is meticulous in all that he does, and hygiene standards are first class...

I had struggled with my feet for 2 years before visiting Graeme. Having previously been given NHS insoles I saw little to no improvement in my walking and accompanied back pain.

I visited Graeme who offered the help I needed by making me some customised orthotics which, I can say have changed my life. I was unable to walk for any period of time without severe pain in my feet and back.

Since wearing my new orthotics I have no pain whatsoever, my posture is much better and the back pain gone! Thank you for a fantastic service!

Dear Graeme

I would like to thank you for your treatment of my legs and feet. For 3 years and more I was in discomfort and sheer pain and on my right leg sometimes I could hardly stand or put it to the ground I was in such pain. Before I came to see you I had seen my local GP and physiotherapist who didn’t have a clue what it was.

But you cured my problem in a week. Thank you again.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Graeme,

I wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my orthotics that you had made specifically for my golf shoes.

Before I had them, I continuously came off the golf course with tired, achy feet, in fact my feet were so bad that by half way round I had lost interest in my game.

However, from the first time I wore them they felt extremely comfortable and I completely forgot that I had foot problems.

I now wear them every time I play and can now concentrate on my game and not my feet.

No more problems, thanks to you and my orthotics.I would recommend them to anyone who plays sport with the emphasis on using their feet.

Charlotte Winder

My feet were in such a bad condition I was so scared of summer and getting my feet out. I had tried everything, and it was suggested by my Chiropodist to get dry needling done. I looked at a few places for quotes and Graeme responded straight away, answering all queries sometimes as late as 10pm! He reassured me ll along the way, but always giving me realistic expectations. I felt as relaxed as possible during the procedure and received excellent aftercare, and Graeme was always on the other end of the phone if I had any worries or concerns. 5 months later both feet are fully healed and I now have so much confidence! I cannot thank Graeme and his team enough, they really did improve my quality of life.

John Pettitt

I needed to have ingrowing toenails on both of my big toes sorted out. Years ago I had just one side of one toe done, the pain was excruciating from the injections therefore I dreaded going though it again. Graeme is my regular podiatrist and he suggested having the nails done and assured me that there would be no pain with the injections. I went ahead. What a joy to have all the work done pain free. I highly recommend Graeme, he is a professional and is very patient.

Response from the owner

Thank you for your kind comments John - especially pleased the injections were not as bad as your previous experiences.

We like to take our time with all patients and this is especially important with any injections and surgery to give the best experience possible.

Kind regards,

ingrowing nails

After suffering for most of my life with ingrowing nails on both sides of both my big toes I decided to get them surgically sorted. Graeme was recommended. He took immense care to check out my feet prior to agreeing to do the work as I am diabetic. The procedure was painless. I followed the aftercare instructions to the letter and again suffered no discomfort. Happy to have them sorted at last. Would recommend Graeme without reservation.

Highly recommended.

As I had an ingrown toenail for some years, I had been to a few chiropodists with only temporary relief, but then I was introduced to Graeme Franklin. A very nice man! As I did not want the whole toenail removed, he suggested a partial removal instead. I was very nervous on the day but Graeme put me at ease. Apart from the pain killing injection, I never felt a thing. I can now wear my closed shoes and boots with no pain and with my toenails painted, you’d never know. I would highly recommend him.

Karen Williamson

Believe me - you will not find a better podiatrist than Graeme. I'd had an ingrowing toe nail problem for years, and two previous unsuccessful attempts by others to cure the problem led me to contact Graeme. He recommended part removal of the offending nail, which was soon carried out with great care. His follow- up care was brilliant, and I've had no further problems. He has continued to care for my feet ever since. Don't

delay in contacting Graeme if you have a problem with your feet.

“Graeme was recommended to me by a Chiropodist. I had a chronic longstanding corn to the ball of my foot and this had caused me significant pain for the past twenty years. I wish I had seen Graeme much earlier. He knew immediately how to treat the corn and I have been walking on air ever since ! Graeme is very professional and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs professional Podiatric advice and treatment.

Review for Injection Therapy

I went to see Graeme Franklin on a friend’s advice back in his time at the Church Road clinic. I had a couple of ingrowing toenails, not serious but I couldn’t cope with them myself. I have been visiting him regularly since that time and I have never received less than 101% service. Graeme is friendly and extremely professional and I would not fail to recommend his podiatry clinic to anyone who needed just run-of-the-mill or more serious help with their foot problems.

painful foot

Dawn

I am so glad I went to see Graeme I had had foot pain for some time making it difficult to carry out daily tasks My GP hadn’t been able to offer much in the way of help. Graeme was able give a diagnosis of the problem, and a possible solution, I was offered an injection in the foot to try and help reduce inflammation and relieve the pain he was very honest and admitted this does not always work, but thankfully in my case it did. The treatment was carried out in a very painless and skilful way.

Antonia

Excellent results from my treatment with Graeme. I had gone to my GP many times in very made pain in my foot. I was told I had athletes foot. I had tried all the products on the market to get find of the issues with my foot. After 2 years of pain and no luck resolving the issues, I went and saw Graeme. On the first appointment he diagnosis the problem as a soft corn. Now after repeat treatments I am finally pain free and no more sleepless nights. Graeme is very professional and wealth of knowledge. I would highly recommend you go and see him if you have foot pain.

Saved My Holiday Trip !!

Len Coote

I had been to a Nurse Practioner and two Chiropodists with an extremely painful toe. None of the above could help or diagnose the problem….although the last one referred me to Graeme. I was so lucky to get an appointment with Graeme just before my holiday….which involved a lot of walking. He quickly diagnosed ‘Morton’s Nuroma’ and recommended Steroid injections plus Orthotic Inserts. As he is one of a very few Podiatrists licensed to give Steroid injections, he was able to give this straight away. After 2 to 3 days I was completely pain free, and this ‘saved’ our very expensive holiday ! The relief was amazing. This was followed up with custom Orthotics for the condition and I have had no problems since. Can’t praise Graeme too highly; he is extremely professional and knowledgeable.
