After 2 MRIs and multiple xrays, I was sent to Dr Grier, within a half hour of looking at the MRI and discussing symptoms with me, we determined it was a neuroma and another nerve issue.

He explained exactly what had happened in my situation. He took his time explaining my options in great detail. He explained in detail, what my previous surgery entailed.
