"Dont reply"

Was referred by GP for diagnosis of mystery foot pain. Had 3 appoints at the Podiatry Centre with 3 different podiatrists all of whom were friendly/ polite/ professional but started from the ground up repeating all the history/ symptom questions and examinations that the prior ones had already conducted. Each said they werent sure what the cause of the problem was but came up with different possibilities from each other.

Getting in contact with them is next to impossible. No publicly listed number or email address for the centre itself only a call centre. The call centre emailed the centre three times for me to ask them to phone me but no call ever received.

As the Podiatry Centre couldn’t diagnose the problem GP referred to Orthopaedic Surgeon who diagnosed what he believes the issue is and referred me to a different podiatrist for treatment.
