I’ve been having problems with my feet following a broken leg a while ago. Since then it’s been difficult for me to bend down and trim my toe nails. I had previously had this taken care of at the Geraldton Health Campus but it seems there is no longer a podiatrist there. I was asked to call my doctor to get an appointment. My dr referred me to a podiatrist who trimmed my nails, but did not seem to undertake a full foot examination and then charged me $65 which I felt was a lot for a very quick appointment that to me wasn’t thorough and I hadn’t expected to pay.
With an increase in the heat my feet are becoming sore underneath again and I looked and saw my nails were over growing again. I checked the My Aged Care but was unable to find a service. I didn’t want to go back to my dr to be referred to a podiatrist again. I was walking past following a dental appointment and saw a nail clinic, I asked them if they did feet. They trimmed my nails, cleaned my feet and checked them over for cracks and made me feel very comfortable. All for $45 which I feel was an excellent service. It’s a shame no one knows about it.
