Thank You So Much, Mickey Plymale!

Big SHOUT-OUT to my buddy & neighbor, Dr. Mickey Plymale!!!

I know we all don’t see each other as much as we used to these days, but two weeks ago I was on my butt, unable to walk. For the second time in less than six months, I thought my ankle was perhaps broken or fractured.

The first time, not wanting to bother Mickey, I went to Dr.s Care on Rosewood and they took an X-Ray and sent me on my way to use the “RICE Method.” After about two weeks I was on my feet again.

Fast forward to two weeks ago, I was in agony. The difference this time was, I couldn’t pinpoint an actual “event” whereby my ankle took a pain. I simply woke up one morning and when I put my foot on the floor almost yelled out and had to catch myself before I fell down.

Jennifer set me up with an appointment and I was in Mickey’s office the next day.

When the X-Ray came back negative, Mickey’s first guess was gout. I thought to myself, “OH, S#@!”

He examined me further and given that I was playing a lot of tennis and that I walk like a duck (toes pointed out), combined that I have flat feet and sprinting and stopping every day for two hours, there may be fluid in my joint. He treated me for that diagnosis, accordingly.

I’m back on the courts.

This post may not move his income or credential needle one bit, but I still want to give a big SHOUT OUT to Dr. Plymale and his staff. Everyone in this practice is friendly, upbeat, and positive, and as a side-note, the tablet system they have in place is easy and top-shelf!

Thank you, Doctor Plymale!!! IMHO, the Midlands of SC is lucky to have you!
