Dr Gladys and her receptionist are very friendly. I got helped on my first day and already feeling better. Hope my next visit will be for something else not for the con between my toes. I didn’t feel a thing when she scraped my con and dead skin on the side of my foot.

Dr Phala thank you for

I am wearing them and I am healed

She is very good person, very open and friendly. She is good at what she do, she will explain everything so you understand what she is doing.
I highly recommend her.
I would say she is the best in town.

Pauline Mosesane


Dr Phala is one of the funniest people I’ve met. She explained what caused my feet to be painful and what should be done to correct. Very kind and goes beyond her call of duty as a Dr. She wants to see people heal. I had a very pleasant experience on all appointments with her and took my mother in for a session with the Doctor. My mother shares my sentiments about Dr Phala. Highly recommend.

Imelda matlou


She is friendly and helped me with the shoes that I feel comfortable when I’m wearing them on affordable price. Thank you Dr Phala

Katlego Arnold Mashego


She is amazing. She gave my problem her all and available always when I need her. It is definitely not a mistake that I gave her five stars.

Shamel Wentzel

Kamogelo Makhafola


I wouldn’t hesitate going back anytime I need to. There’s always something new to learn from Dr Phala every time. I am particularly moved by her passion to educate every chance she gets.

Connie Haupt


To be honest, I have never heard of a podiatrist before! My doctor recommended Gladys and I am so glad that I listened to her. She spent a long time on patiently fixing my toenails. I left with a prescription and good advice. I can strongly recommend her to anyone with any feet related problems!

Katlego Boshomane


At first I wasn’t comfortable with the idea of changing podiatrists but my first appointment was really worth it , it didn’t even feel as if I came to a doctors appointment but felt as if I went to catch up with a old friend . Dr. Phala is a very soft and kind hearted person which makes it ideal for her to deal with people . Besides all of that I am more than satisfied with the service and I have really happy feet

Motshoari Manamela


It was such an awesome experience, I had some cracks and foot corns and she made sure that they are all gone, I am over the moon right now, Gladys is very passionate about feet..
Keep up the good work…



My first day with Dr Phala nwas great, warm and most welcome. She made me realised that what I have it’s a challenge not a problem and can be dealt with.
Very easy to speak to.. never thought I would say I enjoyed being at the Dr.
I had enjoyed visiting her practicing and still enjoying support and guidance provided.

Casey Ndanduleni


I had a great experience as a first timer. I barely waited to be helped when I checked in. Dr Gladys is all very friendly and helpful. I really love how she took her time to examine me & to explain my condition, as well as to how to remedy it. I had a great visit and the doctor’s demeanor really put me at ease, so I highly recommend that you make your appointment.



I was having painful ingrown toe nails on both feet and couldn’t wear shoes or sneakers for 8 months..would only wear sandals. I made an appointment with her and was doubtful and afraid at first,but she always calmed me down every time I consulted her. Yes, I can guarantee that she’s a professional podiatrist. She explained everything in detail and what she’ll be doing to my feet in all my appointments, she also gave advice on how i should treat & dress my wond at home. It’s only a month, since she started treating my feet and am healing now, just yesterday, started wearing my sneakers and I recommend her to everyone who has problems with their feet. I am very impressed. Thanks, Dr. Phala.



Dr. G Phala is highly knowledgeable in what she is doing,she has vast experience and patience, she make you forget about you’re pain as she goes with you all the way through processes. Thank you.

Maria Mogopa


At first when I get there i was scared because I found her via goggle only to find out that she the best ,sweet ,caring and understanding. She helped me so nice explained everything. she keeps on checking on me, definitely I will recommend her to my family and friends. Dr G Phala is the best 😍❤
God bless her to continue helping others.

Titus Mphela Phago


At first I thought she was just a regular doctor, but as time went by I noticed that she is a very patient and caring person. Even after she is done helping you she keeps on checking up on you to make sure her service was good. I am very grateful of how you helped me out and I hope you will keep on helping other patients the same way you helped me out.

Aluwani Mulongoni


Dear G Phala,
Thank you for taking such good care of me and your many other patients. Your professionalism and thoroughness are rare in today’s service world! I appreciate all you do. Keep up the good work and I’ll refer my friends with foot issues to you! Keep up the great work 🥰

Martina Luhandjula


Dr. Phala is a very welcoming, kind, knowledgeable and patient doctor. I took my child there, as well as some research I did on google lol, she heard me out and gave us the professional advise. The orthotics that were created are so comfortable, that my son does not want to remove his shoes. Thank you, and I wish more doctors had the passion she has.
