Any thoughts on Foot and Ankle Specialist?

Posted by Carmen H on 7/17/01 at 13:41 (053492)

I haven't read much about people suggesting Foot and Ankle Ortho's or Specialists? I have made an appointment with one for August 1st. I'm done with my Pod after only two visits. VERY disappointed in his treatment and lack of concern for the seriousness of the pain. My mother in law said 'I refused to go to anyone BUT a Foot and Ankle Specialist because I don't want a knee doctor treating my feet.' In other words she wanted someone for her PF that was skilled ONLY with feet and ankles and dealt ONLY with feet all day long. When she finally got to one he was more understanding and had seen many many cases of PF and understood the pain and was in NO hurry to suggest surgery etc. This appeals to me much more then just a sports injury doc. Can't wait to go with all of my new info from all of my helpful friends on this board. It has been my lifesaver!!!!!
