Michelle Davis D.Pod.M, M.C.Pod.
Michelle qualified from Brighton University in 1991 and has worked extensively in both the NHS and the private sector in Surrey.
Whilst working for the NHS, she has gained a wealth of experience in dealing with all groups of patients from those at the very high risk level of care, such as those suffering with Diabetes and its ongoing complications, to those who just need to be kept both comfortable and mobile.
During her time working for the NHS she was responsible for overseeing and delivering a verruca service. This has given her extensive knowledge of their effective treatment.
As well as working for the NHS Michelle has also worked for large household names such as John Lewis offering a visiting Podiatry service to their staff in both London and the Home Counties.
In addition to the above, Michelle enjoys working with patients with more challenging behaviours such as those with dementia, Alzheimer’s and more complex psychiatric conditions. She have been known to convince even the most reluctant patient that having their feet treated would be of great benefit!
Professional regulation of Podiatry
The College of Podiatry is the leading professional body for HCPC registered chiropodists and podiatrists in the UK. The Foot Health section of their website includes patient information on common foot problems. You can check Michelle and Valerie's details by using the Find A Podiatrist link.
The Health and Care Profession Council is the regulator for health and care professionals. Set up to protect the public, they keep a Register of health and care professionals who meet their standards for training, professional skills, behaviour and health. You can check Valerie and Michelle's registration using the "Check the Register" feature.
I've been twice now to the foot clinic; first time for a corn removal and second time to have a toe support made. Super service on both occasions. Podiatrist explains precisely what is going on as well as how long the result should last. A tad more pricey than other podiatrists, but well worth the few pounds extra.

After 10 years or more of suffering with both my feet having hard painful lumps on the soles which made it incredibly painful to walk barefoot without thick inner soles, inside comfy shoes and my GP telling me I had verrucas, I visited Valerie at St Johns Foot Clinic in Woking and she diagnosed several Corns all over the soles of my feet. There and then she cut them out and it’s the best feeling ever to be able to walk bear foot on hard surfaces without pain or discomfort. Visiting st Johns foot clinic was the best thing I’ve done all year. I only wish I had known about them sooner. Valerie was very informative about everything, professional, polite and courteous. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend St Johns Foot Clinic to anyone. 10 out of 10.

Regarding verruca needling treatment: A new year and a new foot! Unrecognisable from when we started so thank you very much! Am absolutely delighted and relieved to have got this sorted after six years!
Mr. C, January 2018
I had my verruca for 13 years and thought it was beyond help. You guys sorted it out. I reccomend you to others and can't fault either of you at all.

I approached the St. John's Foot Clinic to have treatment for an insistent verruca. I was treated by Valerie whom I found to be very friendly, welcoming and yet extremely professional. She explained very clearly what the problem was and how to treat it. The verruca was gone in two weeks and all the symptoms were exactly as described. I would not hesitate recommending the St. John's Foot Clinic to anyone with any aspects of footcare.

Regarding verruca treatment "... IT WORKED ..."
Mr. J, November 2016
My ingrowing toenail was treated in June and I was very impressed with the care and expertise with which it was done. The procedure was fully explained to me and I felt no pain at all as it was carried out. The level of after care that I received was excellent. I am so glad that I decided to have this done - I only wish I had had it treated sooner!
Mrs. F, July 2016
Went to this new clinic yesterday as I am due for a full knee replacement op next week and was told to get my feet and teeth checked out professionally (don't ask me, I don't know why - I just do as told) and my feet were, I thought, in excellent condition. Well, 45 minutes of tender care later and I walked out of the clinic as if on a carpet of feathers. They cleared out some tags in the corners of my big-toe nails which I could not do, removed some hard skin and bits (don't ask), cleaned out my nails and then and cut my nails (I can do that but hey, dogs and barking etc?), and gave my feet a massage whilst applying some antiseptic cream after the work done. Heaven! Really, I am sold on this Podiatry stuff. Walked the dog in the afternoon and no little jars of pain in the toes... OK, it costs, but it is SO worth it!
