  • Couldn't be more thankful for the quick and friendly service. I needed help fast (I couldn't wait 2-3 months for nail surgery on the NHS) and Jonathan sorted me out just three days after I phoned to enquire. I felt very confident and relaxed in Health First. Thank you all!

  • I was recommended to go and see Jonathan from an excellent local pilates instructor who I trust implicitly, so I knew that the recommendation didn't come lightly. I was not disappointed. Jonathan has been attentive, professional, knowledgeable and provided a very considered solution to my plantar fasciitis. His team are always friendly and helpful - even when I got stuck in traffic and missed my appointment! Highly recommend!

    I wouldn't trust anyone else with my foot-care. With severe circulation issues, my feet are comprised - Health First have treated me for 15 years and I highly recommend them.

  • Excellent service. The clinic was efficient enough that Jonathan was able to undertake toe surgery on the same day of my first appointment (just minutes after the problem was diagnosed!). The staff were very friendly and informative, and kept me very much at ease during the entire process. I was very appreciative and will be returning if I have any similar problems in the future. Highly recommended!

    positive review  After running a long-distance ultra marathon, my feet were in poor shape! They got some much-needed TLC (and more sympathy than from my GP!!). Jonathan sorted out a blister that was hidden under another blister and got my feet on the way to healing 😀

  • positive review  100% recommendation. I walked in with significant foot pain and walked out strapped up and reasonably pain free. The initial consultation was delivered with expert knowledge, professionalism and clearly explained diagnosis and treatment plan. I had attended another foot clinic for a diagnosis but my instinct told me to walk away and consider their treatment proposal and seek another opinion. I felt disappointed that I had no immediate temporary solution to reduce constant foot pain.. I was then recommended to contact Jonathan and the rest is history. His manner and professionalism exceeds, not only am I working towards pain free walking I know I have the confidence in approaching a clear expert. Thank you Jonathan and your team. I have already recommended.

From start to finish my experience was great. highly recommend Jonathan and his staff all very friendly.

  • positive review  As an owner of 3 dogs I’m pretty much on my feet the whole time. However, walking became very painful because of my feet. The culprits were seed corns and awful cracked heels on both feet. Jonathan was excellent at carrying out very effective treatment and advising on an aftercare/maintenance routine. My feet now look and feel so much better and I’m pain free!

    positive review  I was suffering with quite a complicated situation, both plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendon insertion and they required different treatment. Johnathon expertly explained how he was going to deal with the problem and glad to say that after an intensive course of treatment things have improved.

  • positive review  I have had persistent pain with my toenails for years, but did not know the cause of the problem. Previous visits to a different podiatrist left me with no answers! After researching local podiatrists I found that Health First came highly recommended. Mr Small quickly found out the cause of my problem and recommended the best treatment options. The staff were all very friendly and made me feel welcome. All very professional. I cannot recommend them enough to anyone! Will be going back for my follow up treatment in the new year.

    positive review  It was nice to be greeted by pleasant and friendly reception/admin staff. Johnathan (the podiatrist) was very professional and he was very willing to share his knowledge. The pain in my foot was laser treated and on the last treatment it was manipulated which was amazing. I would highly recommend Johnathan. Ann

    positive review  Jonathan is an inspirational Podiatrist. Having attended several courses that have been run by Jonathan and having been lucky enough to have heard him speak at multiple professional events, my knowledge has increased dramatically, as has my love for Podiatry. A true gentleman and a fabulous educator.

Foot Health for the Whole Family at Health First Southam Foot & Gait Clinic

Are your feet being properly looked after? Foot pain, heel pain, even knee pain and back pain can be improved through biomechanical intervention, surgery or other treatments.

In an average lifetime our feet carry us the equivalent of five times around the world. It's not surprising that they need some first aid from time to time. You only get one pair so look after your feet!
