I am writing this letter to thank you for being such a great foot doctor. I came to you about a year ago for a second opinion evaluation for pain to my 2nd toe and 2nd metatarsal phalangeal joint.
I had already been through two surgeries on my right foot by another doctor. The first surgery was done to fix a hammer toe and a tendon issue. After this surgery my toe was not only sticking up in the air, but it was also sending shooting pain into my foot.
Another surgery, which was called a Z-plasty, was recommended and performed to correct my elevated toe and after this procedure I had shooting pains up into my leg. I was told by my doctor that I needed to have a third surgery on my right foot to stop shooting pains that were going up my leg and at that time I felt that I needed to get another opinion.
I was referred to you by my primary care provider, Jenepher Piper, CRNP. After your initial evaluation, you didn’t want to do a third surgery immediately and you suggested that we try a few some conservative options including steroid injections first.
Unfortunately the injections only provided temporary relief and so we both agreed that since my pain was 8 out of 10 that surgery should be pursued.
You operated in September 2013 and here we are five months after my surgery, I no longer have shooting pains in my foot or leg and my toe no longer sticks up in the air. You did a great job and I’m very happy that Jennifer recommended you.
You and your staff have been wonderful throughout this process and I would highly recommend you to my friends and family. Thanks again for all you did for me.
I greatly appreciate it!”
