So I guess podiatrist don't want to care for feet and toes. This physician hardly spoke to me. She had no intention of doing any care for me until I said "please can you help me." She barely spoke to me about what I could do to care for the problem I presented with. I felt as if I wasted her time when in reality it was a waste of my time.
