Patient Comments: Broken Toe - Seeing a Doctor

Why did you see a doctor for your broken toe(s)? Did you see a podiatrist or another kind of doctor?

I have had several broken toes over the years. I have been to a doctor when the pain was unbearable, or the swelling was very bad, or the skin was broken, or one time when the toe was dislocated. Other times, I just tape it to the next toe and use ice, elevation, and ibuprofen.

I saw a doctor to make sure that I was right about my toe being broken and to file a claim with Aflac so that I could get paid for it since I have Aflac accidental coverage.
