Dr. O'Malley at Hospital for Special Surgery gave my left foot its first pain-free years in a long time. After having been misdiagnosed and mistreated in my home state for 3 years, and two top orthopedists telling me to have a bone fusion for the big toe, Dr. O'Malley suggested trying the least invasive procedure. Low and behold, that toe has been functional for no less than 14 years!! I hope to see him again for the right toe, which was operated on unsuccessfully by someone else. If you want a comforting bedside manner and the ultimate professional, see Dr. O'Malley!! He's worth any telephone or office wait!!
