Patient Testimonials - July 2014

I am delighted with the results and doing really well. I was particularly impressed by the way you made yourself available by text it gave me great reassurance. I’ve already recommended you to several people who have been very sceptical about foot surgery, it’s really very funny to see people taking off their socks and shoes to compare their feet to mine. D.M. Gilford.  June 2014

Hi Claire, I'm back in heels and thrilled with the results of my bunion surgery! A.C. Dublin August 2013

Dear Claire , Again many thanks for the wonderful job you did on my foot, it has been on display so many times as everybody keeps asking to see your good work - you may have a lot of ladies calling to see you. A.D. Dublin Dec 2013

Your caring friendly manner made the whole procedure easier to get through. I'm now looking forward to some retail shoe therapy. E.L. Belfast May 2013

Many thanks for all your kindness to me. I.G. Dublin July 13

Since the middle of October I have been able to wear high heels again and for the first time in my life I am looking forward to the summer so that I can at last wear sandals, so let the shoe fest begin. V.C. Dublin November 2010

And from the staff and specialists who work with Tim Kilmartin
Dr Kilmartin has practiced in the field of Podiatry initially and then Podiatric Surgery for many years. He has developed exceptional diagnostic and clinical skills for which he is justly renowned. He often has to deal with complex clinical cases and is often the "last ditch chance" for a patient for whom previous interventions by clinicians and surgeons has failed to relieve a problem or made a problem worse.

He is generous with his advice and help to fellow professionals, either over the phone or practically by visiting other centres and directing a difficult case. His academic record is second to none both in the UK and probably in Europe and the USA. He has provided much if not most of the research base for podiatric surgery in the UK (a remarkable acheivement) and is held in high esteem by the profession.

"Dr Kilmartin is by some way one of the most knowlegable podiatric surgeons I have worked with. His attention to detail and ability to reflect is second to none."
Dr Kilmartin is an eminent colleague for whom I hold considerable respect. His contribution to our profession in terms of research is beyond reproach and he has done much to drive the quality of practice up based on outcome evidence. he has trained a number of surgeons who have gone on themselves to share his passion for foot surgery"

"One of the few 'great' podiatrists. proven record of excellence, skill, development and training of others."

Further patient testimonials:

"The operation has brought back quality of life for me and I thank Mr Kilmartin from the bottom of my heart."
Mrs MR.  Willington Bunion surgery for metatarsalgia January 2009

Such pain borne in Malta and also Ukraine,
I’m now back from Switzerland crutchless again
I’ve scaled up the Eiger and steep Matterhorn
And glad to report troubles nearly all gone.
And here I was thinking I’m over the top
Much better the knife than to not knife at all,
Thanks Mr Kilmartin, I’m having a ball.
