Ok the nurse bought the machine for 15K. She still needs to pay the company to use the machine. She is an INVESTOR in the company and has an exclusive to the area. Other Doctors in Chico can't even get the machine. The laser DOES work!!!!!! It's too bad they are scamming the local Doctors and giving all the $$$ to a Nurse who is an investor. Double Dipping as they say. Give the Doctors a chance and the price will be less to the patient. She is the middle man and the Doctor only gets $100 out of the $700-$900 fee the patient pays. Isn't that crazy!!!!!!!!
Nope. It's smart business. It's HER investment. Maybe I'll take out a loan and do the same thing WTF

I went to Dr. Greenberger, in Norwalk. He was very nice. I live in Warwick and it was about a two hour drive. The drive was nice though.

Jean,

Are you seeing any improvement? I have been trying all kinds of OTC ointments for three years and I am now ready for a treatment that really works. Let me know how the laser treatment is helping?

I just had the treatment done in Las Vegas. It cost $750 here. My doctor said it is about 90% effective. It has only been one week but I will keep updating to let you know hot it is going.
They say it will take months before I will see anything.

I haven't read much about the laser therapy... The creams don't really help much... So has anyone tried the Listerine???

Maybe this will help. for the last year i have been using Cider Vinegar diluted with hot water or Tea bags in hot water (heard from Dr Oz on Ophra) to soak my feet in once a week and daily use OTC topicals with much improvement. I no longer have nail thickening and all the yellow is gone. However, there is still a small number of white streak that i can see on one of my nails. I also, notice that if stop this routine it slowly starts to come back so i have it under control but not completely gone. Finally am still very interested in laser treatment for it to be completely gone.
hope this helps

Has anyone tried "tea tree oil"? cost 3 - 4 dollars at Walmart or at a Health Food Store. It's comes from Australia. It can take 2 - 6 months to wipe out the toenail fungus. It may take a while, but the price is great. I know cause I used it, and it worked!!!! No more fungus !! It's also wipes out Staf Infections. Google it on the web it wipes out other bacteria and fungus.

I've been meaning to write. It's been 3 months, I go for my follow up this week. I'm starting think they are looking better but I'm anxious to see what the Dr. thinks. I wish it was faster. I wish I had taken pictures the day I went but he did so I hope to compare them when I go.

I am a Pod in Sacramento and it's great to see the alternative treatments for nail fungus...even as I am preparing to invest a significant amount of $$ in laser "B", that will be FDA approved for treatment of nail fungus. May not be available until July, 2009. Should be significantly cheaper (initially at least) and should be a variable price depending on the number of nails involved. I know that the average price for the current laser in Sacramento is $900+ and it does not matter how many toes are involved. I will keep an eye on the updates here on this topic. I will be posting updates on laser "B" at http://www.podiatristsacramento.com/laser_tre... .
