Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Clara |
Dr. Pinney did my bunion and #2 toe 6 weeks ago. Other than a slight wound infection all is going well. Stitches removed at 2 weeks. The pin removed at 5 weeks. At 6 weeks I'm starting to wear a stiff soled shoe just around the house. Dr. Pinney is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I recommend him completely.
