We care about your experience. Here at ZW Clinics we are always trying to improve our services. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent service that you will remember. Let us know what you think.

Excellent treatment and a great cup of coffee, too! Zoe offered a range of exercises alongside treatment that has dramatically reduced the pain I was experiencing in my heel from a running-related injury. I'd highly recommend the friendly, welcoming and supportive treatment offered at the Kirkby Lonsdale clinic. Many thanks!

Very professional service from start to finish and- crucially, after 5 visits Zoe successfully cured my very painful plantar fasciitis. I am back running after only 4 weeks treatment-yay!! Zoe quickly diagnosed my problem using ultrasound and then provided me with an exercise programme to do at home (e-mailed to me with videos of each exercise). I then had 4,sessions of shock wave therapy which definitely paid off. I wanted the best and needed to get back on my feet quickly so was prepared to pay. The team at ZWF&A are super friendly and caring too. Thankyou!

Cannot recommend Zoe and her friendly team at ZW foot and ankle enough. I have hyper mobility so have always had a lot of pain in my feet, especially working in hospitality standing up constantly. Prices are so reasonable considering this is a specialist service! Thank you Zoe! Can’t wait to return and continue my treatment.

Zoe and her team are very professional and efficient and above all friendly and easy to chat with to discuss lower limb problems. Zoe explains her diagnosis very clearly I would definitely recommend.

I have used these angels on a couple of occasions now and they are amazing! Professional and precise they have managed to treat my feet and it really is miraculous. I don’t know how they do it because what seems like a big problem to me they sort out with ease! I can’t recommend ZW Clinics highly enough, they can deal with anything!
Mark Butterworth
Without doubt, the best podiatrist in the country. Zoe was excellent and managed to fix my feet that I had been suffering with for a decade. After four wasted trips to other local podiatrists that proved a usless waist of money, she expertly diagnosed and looked after me. I could not recommend highly enough Zoe and her team.
