He knew way more than the last surgeon I went to who would have compromised me losing my foot. Surgery and intense pain does have me freaked out. But I felt more confident in his knowledge than the other surgeons.

Doctor was in a hurry. Did not show or explain my x-rays, only briefly mentioned them. I spent a lot of time on activity report, but doc did not review them. Doctor does not like to deal with worker's comp. but what doctor does? Bedside manner could be more courteous. Was not given a firm diagnosis, only sent for more unaffordable tests (I have only private insurance, no supl). Doc does not treat other body parts, only feet. Doctor wrote my left leg is wrapped, but it is my right leg.
