He could not find my problem with my foot and had me go to a specialist to get an insert for my shoe. I was in extreme pain with my foot. My husband doctor, internal medicine, found my problem and knew right away what was wrong. He took a x-ray and saw a problem on my spine. First medication and when that do take care of it I had an MIR. I should get information this week about the MIR, but was told I would probably get an injection. I am so happy a doctor found my problem because I was in pain with my foot for two years. I'm feeling so much better now.
