    grateful for the excellent care. Only thing that wasn't great was that in the appointments the month or so ahead of the bunion surgery when I'd asked about how mobile I'd be I was told I shouldn't have trouble at all moving about, and that maybe, if I needed them, you would get me crutches. I wasn't informed until the pre-op meeting that my foot could not be load bearing at all for 3 weeks and that I'd definitely need a scooter or crutches. Not being able to put any weight on the foot meant that I wouldn't be mobile enough to step up small sets of non-ADA-compliant stairs at work that I need to get up/down several times a week for public events I lead. So I only had 2 days to scramble to get coverage for for those events. Luckily I have a wonderful boss and he happened not to have any travel those weeks, so he could cover. I'm guessing my case may have simply been an oversight - but I hope you are more explicitly clear with others about the level of disability in the first weeks after surgery.

    It's a very slow healing process, but I am on my way.

    I was surprised when an assistant had me take off my shoe took my orthotics I don’t know this person and I don’t know his training I’m not seeing the doctor first, he takes my old orthotics and my new ones and he trims them and I have no idea who this person is or what kind of training he has. Then the doctor comes in and has me walk asked me how it is. I told him it didn’t feel the same as before I’ve worn a thought IX for probably close to eight years if not longer. He said come back into weeks. I did not feel listened to. I have a fused toe on the foot that didn’t feel right.

    I would have liked to see my x-rays and have the areas of pain pointed out to me, to help me understand a little more about what's happening and why I have so much pain

    Dr Carter was exceptional. The surgery center (Precision Surgery) has been a challenge - my insurance claims associated with the surgery center have still not been settled 8 months and counting after the surgery due to issues with how the center submitted the paperwork

    An 8 instead of a 10 on communication. only because ( and this is important), I wasn't shown the MRI results in the follow-up visit. Although Dr. Briskin did tell me i had a fracture in the injured area I should have asked for (when I did not receive one) a detailed explanation pf the screening results as I was being shown the slides(which I was not shown). This is not only expected as part of the follow-up visit, but is important to enable the patient to better understand the injury and necessary follow-up treatment and care. Otherwise, loved having Dr. Briskin and hhighly recommend him. This is a clinic setting, and doctors are forced to rush through an overbooked schedule.
