I have been dealing with worsening toenail fungus for approximately 20 years. I tried over-the-counter products and the home remedies including Vicks VapoRub without any improvement. The condition started on my big toes and when it started to spread, I decided it was time to go see a doctor. I researched online and spoke to several patients as well as physicians that I know that refer patients to Dr. Jordan Stewart at Timonium Foot and Ankle Center and they were extremely pleased with their treatments and results.
When I first met Dr. Stewart, he discussed my condition in detail. He reviewed all options available to me including topical medication, oral medication, and laser therapy. He laid out the expected outcomes for each treatment very clearly and did not suggest one option over another. Dr. Stewart encouraged me to make my own independent decision, which I really appreciated.
Dr. Stewart emphasized that I had a bad case of athlete’s foot and this contributed to my toenail fungus and it was necessary to treat this as well as the toenail fungus for the best long-term results. I felt that laser was the safest pathway for me to achieve the results I was looking for and out of all the therapies it had the highest success rate.
I am very happy to report that after undergoing laser therapy for my toenails, my nails are night and day difference in their appearance. I am no longer embarrassed by my toenails. Prior to laser therapy, I had not gone for a pedicure in years due to the fear of embarrassment and this caused me a great amount of anxiety. Now that my nails are clear and free of fungus, I am excited to go to the pedicurist and get my nails done.
I am extremely appreciative of the efforts Dr. Stewart took to get my nails better. The laser therapy includes 4 treatments and Dr. Stewart informed me that if needed, he would offer 2 additional treatments at no additional cost. This gave me reassurance when I decided to pursue laser as it showed me that Dr. Stewart was just invested in a successful result as I was. I ended up having one additional treatment and this really meant a lot to me and contributed to my successful result.
The overall experience at Timonium Foot and Ankle Center was easy and convenient. The staff was pleasant and accommodating and they answered all my questions regarding my health insurance, and this made me feel very comfortable. My interactions with Dr. Stewart were great. I was very impressed that he took the time to review my medical record prior to coming into the room at each visit displaying that he was well prepared, something I do not always experience when I go to the doctor.
I would highly recommend Dr. Stewart and Timonium Foot and Ankle Center for toenail laser fungus and for any foot and/or ankle conditions.
