I would NEVER recommend this idiot to anyone!My son cut his foot with a piece of broken glass,I took him to Dr Vanderwood. He stitched my sons foot up not noticing that his tendon that holds the arch up in your foot was severed.I believe the least he could have done was let us know that there were very important tendons in this area of the foot and sent us for an MRI or possibly referred us to an orthopedic. 5 years later and going on our 2nd surgery MY SONS FOOT WILL NEVER BE RIGHT or NORMAL!!
