"Hello, my name is Dolores Evans and I live in Palm Desert, CA. I have had the hammertoe and it was really bugging me because it looked so ugly to me. I couldn’t wear my sandals and “vanity, thy name is woman!” So I wanted to get it fixed, and I saw Dr. Danciger.

thought everything went well. I loved the place where the surgery was done, they were very kind and helpful. The doctor did the surgery, and when I was recovering I thought the first day, “This was a little bit too much, and I wish that I had not done this because it was in pain.” But then I was very happy because the medication I took made everything alright and every hour I was better and better.

Today I’m very happy that I’ve had it done and I’m on the road to recovery. I had it done on Monday and this is Thursday and I’m feeling wonderful and the pain is not as bad as I thought. It was the first day a little bit stressful, but each time it got a little bit easier."
