I'm in the U.S. - I found this forum because I thought I might have a sesamoid fracture (foot injury) Podiatrist doesn't think it's broke - and it does seem to be gradually improving.
But I also asked the podiatrist about an ingrown toenail, and she is going to do minor surgery on that toe this Friday.
The problem is... I don't know all that much about the doctor.
How can I find out about her as a surgeon?
When I look for ratings and reviews, I suspect I am seeing advertisements (showing only the good reviews).
How do I check if there are bad reviews or if the doctor has a higher failure rate than others? Maybe I'm asking the impossible.
In case anyone is wondering - the foot injury was from kicking my son... sparring in Taekwondo, that is
I caught the edge of his arm guard and jambed my big toe. It feels like the injury is way back in the metatarsal bone. It's healing slow because I can't completely stop training, and am protecting the foot with TKD shoes, for the most part, but it still takes a bit of a beating if I get too enthusiastic. It's hard not to work out at high intensity, and because I'm not young, recovery takes more time these days.
