Dr Askew; I had been suffering from pain in the large joint of my right big toe for years. It finally got so bad I was left with no other option but to get it corrected surgically. By luck of the draw referral from the VA, I got Dr. Askew. From the first day, I found him to be very engaging with a great sense of humor. After X-rays and examination, Dr. Askew took his time and explained my procedure throughly, answering all my questions in detail. It's been a year since my surgery and I'm still pain free. Dr. Askew is a brilliant surgeon with an outstanding staff. A special thank you to Dr. England for her kindness and compassion.
