Othropedic doc versus podiatrist for feet....
I have had the same podiatrist for about 20 years. Unfortunately, he's moved about an hour and a half away. But he's very gentle and kind, and did surgery on my foot once, and treated plantar fasciitis successfully, and has helped me with a number of other problems. When I mentioned to my sports medicine doc that I thought I had developed a Morton's neuroma in my foot, he told me to see one of his partners. He poo-pooed podiatrists and implied that they probably can't be trusted.
I think there's no reason for me to change to an orthopedic doc, when I'm happy with my podiatrist. In fact, a long time ago I saw an orthopedic doc for my plantar fasciitis, and he did nothing for it.
I'm just curious if you've ever made a choice for your feet.........was it an orthopod or a podiatrist?
