Speight's Podiatry clinic opens and simultaneously goes on line, 8th April 2002

Auckland's newest podiatry clinic opened today, aiming to service the feel of local clientele, which includes people who work and live in the Central Auckland region.

"...I was visiting from Australia and I hadn't been to my Podiatrist recently, so I came here with very bad ingrowing toe nails and they were fixed in a very short phase of time. The treatment provided a lot of relief and it's probably the best Podiatry visit I ever had which made me come here again for my next appointment."
"...I have seen Simon for many years. I am very happy with the service and when I leave I feel as I am walking on air and not only that - we have wonderful conversations."
"...The result has been toes which don't feel tender. I am able to walk as much as I want every day and don't suffer painful toes. I would recommend Simon to anyone who needs podiatry treatment. He is easy to talk to and shares his knowledge."
"...What a difference, visiting a doctor and walking out feeling better. I've always had trouble with my feet and now after a treatment my feet feel and look good to go again!"
"...I have ingrown toe nails and see Simon regularly for treatment. I find him to be a skillful podiatrist removing the offending nails thus reducing the pain I experience. His easy-going nature puts one at ease. His downtown location and early morning appointments are very convenient. I recommend Simon to others with ingrown toe nail issues."
