Ask the doctor
The "ask the doctor" portal is an avenue by which visitors may ask questions regarding problems with the foot, ankle and lower leg. Because of the large amount of questions received on a weekly basis, the doctor cannot possibly answer all the questions. Other reasons that a question may not be answered include, but are not limited to, the following: Questions which are very similar to questions that have already been answered, questions that are vague in nature, questions (and their answers) which would have little value to subsequent visitors and questions which ask him to make a diagnosis. It is virtually impossible to make an accurate diagnosis without physically examining a patient. Advice that is given through this portal is derived through the information provided by the person writing which is always subject to misinformation and misleading descriptions and for that purpose the information provided by the doctor cannot be considered accurate. The only way to get an accurate diagnosis is to visit a health care practitioner. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay treatment because of something you read on this site or any other medical related site. Also, be reminded, that answers provided by the doctor may not occur until seven to ten days after the questions are submitted, so do not wait for an answer before seeking medical treatment.
Keep in mind that both the questions asked and the answers given will appear on this site. The purpose of this is to allow future visitors the possibility of finding recommendations in solving their problems.
