"Dr.
diagnosed the problem as blocked sweat glands, and he removed some of the little nodules painlessly. He showed one to me and it had" a hard core that caused the pain when pressure was on the foot. He mentioned that some people rub vitamin E on the area for treatment and prevention. By the time I got home, the foot was not aching any more and has continued pain free. I am using the vitamin E to keep these little growths from coming back. So far so good. Dr.
is always kind and gentle in his work. His staff is excellent too.

"Rude doctor. Xray tech ran over the same foot my broken leg was on with a wheel chair. Less than two minutes with the doctor. Desk staff was efficient but couldn't" even produce a smile. Never seen such a group of unhappy people before. And they charged my insurance plenty!

Foot and ankle orthopedics

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

examined my foot and looked at the x-rays taken from the previous doctor. He said that I didn't have a stress fracture, which came as a shock, since I just spent 7 weeks thinking that I did. Dr.
North Vernon Orthopedic Doctors Provider Name Locked
said I have high arches and I'm putting to much pressure on that part of my foot. Then, he says they can either break my foot and put it back together, or I can wear shoe inserts and pads to try to change the way I walk. Lovely.
So then he says they have some little gel pads that I can have for free, and he prescribed me ArchRival shoe inserts. He said they are the only orthotics that insurance covers. He said they are normally $80, but insurance will cover them. He was confident about this. Then his nurse was supposed to fit me for them. But instead she just asked what shoe size I wear, left, and then came back and handed the inserts to me. They make me sign a paper saying that they have a 7 day return policy with these and that I was fitted properly for them. I leave thinking all is well.
Once I get home and try them on, I realize they are the wrong size. Frustrating. So I call and have to make another trip downtown to exchange these for the proper size. The nurse said I don't need an appointment, that she will see me when I arrive. I arrive and they are slammed. Seriously, a long line for a doctor's office and the waiting room is full. I wait in line and finally get to explain to the front desk girl that Dr.

's nurse said I didn't need an appointment and that I'm just exchanging sizes. After a little while, she comes to get me. She did apologize and seemed like a nice girl, but she wasted a bunch of my time by not fitting me in them in the first place.
Now, I have the right size, but they hurt my feet. I tried to give them a shot on a couple different occasions thinking that the longer I wait, the more

my foot has to heal and then they would feel better. It's been a month and I still can't walk in them. Obviously I was not concerned with the cost because Dr.
North Vernon Orthopedic Doctors Provider Name Locked
assured me that insurance would cover them.
So now I receive a bill in the mail for $80. Insurance denied it. I called Orthocarolina to try to return them, and they say I signed a piece of paper for the 7 day return policy and there is nothing they can do. On the inside of the package there is another number for a 60 day return policy from the manufacturer. I called them and since I didn't buy from them directly, I can't return through them. They say that the doctor should honor their 60 day return policy. But they don't. I told them about the 7 day paper I had to sign. So I got screwed. Dr.

should not lie about insurance covering something that it does not always cover.

Saw Dr.
North Vernon Orthopedic Doctors Provider Name Locked
briefly. He quickly diagnosed the ankle swelling as a circulatory problem and gave me a referral to specialists to address the problem. Also quickly recommended heel cups/new orthotics for the heel pain (now gone). The practice has an in-house staff person responsible for custom orthotics and I've been very pleased with them; much better than those I'd obtained from a podiatrist a few years ago. Very satisfied with the results of my visits.

He was very helpful explaining what could cause it and appropriate remedy . he started with the easiest procedure to take care of the problem and so far so good as of 5/20/15. I would return to him in a heartbeat if I have any further foot problems.

It really is an amazing experience. I could write an entire review on their food service alone. Their hospital facility, Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital (MOSH), is like a 5-Star hotel, and the service and care match that 5-Star expectation. I've never had a hospital experience like that before.

It went well. The only difficult thing was parking due to parking fees, but the doctor was great. Very knowledgeable, polite, and good bedside manner. They also had 2 nursing assistants who were very conscientious. It was a great overall experience and I think I will use her for my next surgery.

We saw Dr.

to evaluate the treatment of a foot injury that was taking too long to heal. Got an appointment for the next morning, including new xrays. Dr.
North Vernon Orthopedic Doctors Provider Name Locked
was on time. She listened to the situation and evaluated the xrays. She has a background in working with dancers and athletes, and her philosophy is to return to play as soon as it is safe to do so. She encouraged me to continue with my current doctor but to push for more aggressive treatment (weaning from the boot). I started slowly returning to my sport that day, and I worked with my current doctor to increase PT and start weaning from the boot. Dr.
