This business of yet another broken foot brought my priorities into focus when I sought treatment for it.
At first I opted for a podiatrist whose clinic was just a few blocks down the road from where I live.
But after two weeks of consults and three boot changes it became abundantly clear that capable and well practiced as he may be he was not the doctor for me.
I opted instead to return to a New York based foot specialist who has been treating our family's feet issues through the years.
What a world of difference it was.
One put me at ease enough to trust that I would heal well while the other made me doubt my own body's capability and need.
Big difference! I count my blessings that I am now able to see this choice with such clarity.
Would that we were all equally fortunate.
