Today I went for my 3 month visit with the kidney doctor.
I had not dealt with the particular nurse who checked me in. After we'd reviewed my meds, she said Dr W would be in shortly. I started to take off one of my shoes and she asked what on earth I was doing. I told her that I had stubbed a toe and wanted the doc to take a quick look at it.
SHe said, quite sternly, "Dr. W is a nephrologist. Don't insult him by asking to look at your foot."
Dr W comes in and we chat a bit. He then said, "is there anything else I can help you with today?" So I told him and he replied, "for sure - no biggie - best to nip these things in the bud."
He looked at the toe carefully and said it was fine. And saved me from another $60 co-payment for an office visit.
He's a keeper.

Kathy, I have a keeper. A podiatrist who operated on my finger to correct an ingrown nail. He said you knwo I am a little bit out of my specialty here. I said doctor you do hundreds of ingrown toe nails each year, I bet the difference between an ingrown toe and finger nail is not very much. LOL.

By the way he met me at 6:00 AM to clean up a cut on my toe on Saturday morning this past Thanksgiving weekend. Yep he is a keeper. But I am sorry ladies he is married. You have to love a doctor who takes takes risks to help his patient
