Continuing his learning and enhancing his skills are key focuses in his development as a Podiatrist where he commits to participate in further continual professional development. Gary enjoys working with the public to provide a friendly and professional service. This is very important to him, and he describes this as the key elements of where his treatment comes from – evidence based practice.
