Both provided that they have the experience and reputation to treat heel pain . You can tell at your first visit . Did the doctor listen to you.

How much time did he spend with you. Did he take an x-ray. Did he explain his treatment plan . Did he really have a treatment plan. You can find alot of good questions to ask your potential doctor by going to the search engine . This is an important question to ask and a very important question to know how to handle at your visit.

The online book about pf lists alot of treatment with alot of good information about each. So you must educate yourself about all treatments before and after the visit.
