What people say about us on Proven Expert

Just some of our 5 star ratings recommendations:

I came across Dr Nowak through the internet, after researching options I had for my big toe arthritis (hallux rigidus). I then got in touch with Susan who was my main point of contact pre and post operation. I had a Cartiva implant inserted early December 2018 and was told to start with mobility (limited by my pain threshold) immediately. So far, I am doing well with my recovery & could go back to some of my daily walks with the dog within 10 days. This would have been impossible with a fusion or wedge surgery! The healing process from the inside and soreness around the toe always takes a few months. Doing a lot of massage and stretching exercises is part of the rehabilitation process. My trust in Dr Nowak and his skills is high due to his years of positive experience with this procedure. I also asked his advice regarding my finger arthritis and he was honest enough to say that he would not recommend surgery/joint replacement due to the low success rate. What is key to my positive experience in the whole process, is the continued contact with Susan who has answered (& continues to answer) all questions almost immediately (via phone call or WhatsApp). That support is priceless. Every medical team needs such a person, especially for the after care! I would highly recommend Dr Nowak and his team.

Customer review for European Foot Institute Dr. med. Dirk Nowak, 01/09/2019

I recommend, dr. Nowak and his team, for the way in which they are working. The experience was very good, even if I decided to do the surgery for both feet in the same time. I was informed from the begining about everything, verbally and written. They are very organized and everything was like we discussed. The clinic in which was the surgery done was very good too, I appreciated a lot the way in which the anesthesia was done and the way in which the anestesit has discussed with me before the surgery. I felt that I am on a good hands. I am happy because I did this and I recomend everyone who has this problem to choose dr. Nowak.

Customer review for European Foot Institute Dr. med. Dirk Nowak, 12/05/2018

My mother had been having problems with her feet for a very long time and the constant pain she was suffering was making walking very hard to the point where she felt physically sick and faint, and finding comfortable shoes to wear also became a problem for her. After being referred to numerous specialists and having no positive outcome I came across European Foot institute leaflet and contacted them to see whether they would be able to help my mum. I spoke to Susann I explained the problems my mum was having and whether anything could be done? Susann asked for details about my mother and also requested she had a foot X-ray so they could have a clearer idea as to what was going on with my mothers toes. Once all this was done we was able to set up an appointment to meet Susann and Mr Nowak and we didn’t have to wait long. Upon arrival the receptionist at the laser and skin clinic in Worthing was friendly, kind and professional which help to put my mum at ease as she was quite nervous.

We didn’t have to wait long before Susann came and introduced herself and took us to meet Mr Nowak for my mother’s consultation. Mr Nowak and Susann spoke and explained all the treatment options that was available to my mum and what they thought would be the best option for her.We found them to be very professional, kind, supportive and considerate especially towards my mothers needs, finances and her other health problems.
My mother went in for her procedure the next day.

The level of care, support, professionalism, friendliness from Susann, Mr Nowak, receptionist and the surgery team was totally outstanding. I have never ever came across such amazing people who generally cared and worked very hard, who was consist in everything they did, the after care was outstanding.
The care and support didn’t just finish once my mum had her procedure done Susann remained in constant touch through out contacting regulary to see whether my mum was ok and if she had any problems etc.

The care and support from the staff at the Laser and skin clinic in Worthing was also outstanding and I would truly recommend European foot institute to any one that wanted outstanding, professional, friendly, supportive and value for money service they are truly exceptional people.
