Best foot doctor!
I fell ice skating in Jan - tore my ligaments & multiple fractures. Dr. Howard Pike is a specialist with this type thing & I chose him for my surgeon. He was great! He's a triathlete so understood where I was coming from in regard to getting back to activities. I'm 53 years old and too many people want to tell you not to do things like that at this age. He was very encouraging to continue my active lifestyle but helped make sure I paced myself for the best healing process. I also use alternative medicine (homeopathics, herbs, vitamins) and he didn't try to deter me from doing so. If he didn't know about something he said so. But when I had a better than average recovery, he said keep doing what I'm doing. I've just been released to go back to rock climbing, hiking, dancing, court sports. Because of my use of yoga & Pilates and pushing myself when I needed to but resting in the process when that was needed, I didn't require therapy. This was an ideal doctor-patient relationship for me. Remember, we have a responsibility for our own health, it's not just the doctor's job. Dr. Pike's staff was also nice to me and I have no complaints.
