    I saw Dr. Myefsky multiple times a week for 3 weeks after I skewered my foot on a hardwood floor. At every appt I insisted there was still wood in my foot. Dr. Myefsky ignored my concerns every time. My request for an MRI was denied by him. He lanced it and prescribed more antibiotics since it wasn't responding. On 2/1, nearly a month after my injury, I removed a 4.5" piece of wood from my own foot. It had been there almost a month, causing tremendous pain. All of which could have been avoided.
