Surgery was not recommended at this time which is just fine. But...I was told that there are toe devices available through the office or also online. I was never shown one to know what they look like or provided in details to possibly purchase.

I waited approximately 45 minutes to be first be seen by the PA who was cordial and spend under 10 minutes with me. I waited another 10 minutes to see the Dr. who gave me options for my situation but did not take the time to discuss these. It seemed like he couldn't get out the door fast enough. Very frustrating and disappointing!
