Masterton Foot Clinic Team


Here at Masterton Foot Clinic, we offer much more than expert, innovative foot care and a dedicated, above-and-beyond service. We give you back the enjoyment and freedom to do the things you love and surpass your goals without pain, discomfort or injury holding you back.


This is the driving force behind everything we do – helping you realise your full potential and allow you to stride towards it. Whether you want to enjoy physical activities again without pain, run a marathon, be comfortable on your feet during a long day of work or just feel steady and confident when going for a walk with your family, we’ve got you covered.


Our highly skilled and passionate podiatry team have dedicated their careers to improving the lives of others through excellence in foot care. We operate following gold-standard protocols, implement advanced technologies, tailor every treatment to your life and goals, and stay with you every step of the way. There is nothing we want more than a happy, healthy and pain-free you.

Adam Philps – Director & Senior Podiatrist

Adam’s passion for enabling his patients to realise their full potential and continue to enjoy the activities they love is the driving force that saw Masterton Foot Clinic become a cornerstone of the local community since in 2003. The feet, Adam believes, are the foundation of good health, and it is his job to enable patients to live the healthiest lives possible.


Adam loves the opportunity to use his skills to improve the lives of others, and see the change in not only their pain or comfort, but their overall happiness and quality of life. Committed to delivering the best outcomes for his patients, he continues to learn new skills, utilise emerging advances in podiatric technology, adhere to best-practice guidelines and always put his patients and their needs and goals first.


These principles have cultivated a world-class culture at Masterton Foot Clinic, and has helped form a team that is passionate, dedicated, highly trained and that always give their all to their patients and their work. The clinic is well-equipped with everything needed to provide excellent podiatric care and Adam facilitates ongoing professional development for his team to continue to grow their skillsets.


Over the last decades, Adam has seen the success of Masterton Foot Clinic continue to grow, as well as the conception of his sub-specialty clinic, Cold Laser Nail Clinic. Outside of work, Adam enjoys tramping, fly fishing and spending time with his family.
