Doctors

Have your patient assessed by experienced, competent and Certified Pedorthists.

A prescription is not necessary but very helpful with condition and previous treatments information provided. With prescription, your patient can access pedorthic services sometimes with government or private health insurance reimbursements.

Contact us for more information and how and where to book your patient an appointment with our Certified Pedorthists.

What our clients say about us

I would recommend BFS Pedorthics services to anyone who is experiencing feet problems

Not only is the craftsmanship of the boots to a very high standard but they also look and feel great!

I cannot express enough my gratitude for the end result, I now am able to walk, stand and move with confidence.

My BFS Pedorthics made boots provide a very stable platform and the design of the internal ankle brace allow me to go about my normal daily activities without extreme pain and fatigue caused by my injuries

I can walk, stand and move with confidence thanks to my custom made boots from BFS Pedorthics

The professional and extremely friendly attitude and service provided by yourself and shopfront team (Kirra) made dealing with BFS a pleasure

Ernie, I will refer more patients to you, thanks for your professional response

I have been a client of BFS Pedorthics since October 2008. Their service is professional and of a very high standard.

Without the help from BFS Pedorthics footwear walking for me would be very limited. I would highly recommend their services
