I'm sure it's hard for a doctor to treat someone who doesn't show improvement. Having said that, I am amazed at the condescending attitudes of both the podiatrist and orthopedic surgeon I've seen. It's like they really don't want to be bothered. When I told the orthopod I'd be doing Disneyworld in a wheel chair because of pain he said, "That will really slow you down." No kidding!! The first time I went to the orthopod I asked him for a night splint. He said I didn't need one. The very next visit, HE suggested a night splint--guess his suggestion made it OK!
