I was experiencing knee and foot pain at the time I booked an appointment with Dean Woodcock. After a very thorough and concise assessment, Dean explained that custom orthotics would correct my foot and knee mechanics. In less than a week, Dean built my custom orthotics, re-evaluated my condition and made the final adjustments to my new orthotics.The orthotics have completely eliminated my foot pain and my knees feel perfectly fine after full shifts as a firefighter. I would highly recommend Dean Woodcock - his professionalism, knowledge and construction of orthotics exceed what other allied health professionals offer. Because he measures and manufactures the orthotics in his own lab, he avoids "cookie cutter" solutions to your complex foot problems.I will always return to Dean for my orthotics for both sports and work-related footwear. I highly recommend his services!

I required orthotics for a foot issue and York Foot Orthotics & Bracing was recommended to me. From the moment I had my first appointment, I was very impressed with Dr. Woodcock and his services. The fact that he has his own workshop, on site, to make the orthotics was really a bonus. Sending orthotics out for impressions and corrections takes way too long. This way, if I have any issues at all, Dr. Woodcock can correct them right on site. He gives such personal customer service, any time it is required. I would highly recommend Dr. Dean Woodcock. He has convenient offices located in Aurora and Collingwood. Excellent job!
