Customer Question

Can you tell me which ER in Seattle to take my son? He was seen in an ER on 6/30 while away on vacation for multiple closed fractures of his foot and told to follow up with an orthopedic foot specialist/surgeon when he gets home in Seattle. His flight comes in tonight. He was given a splint and crutches. He has a transverse, non-displaced fx of the 2nd metatarsal, a transverse displaced fx of the 3rd metatarsal, and a transverse comminuted non displaced fx of the 4th metatarsal. (I think that one is also spiral, according to the ER note) He is now 5 days post injury.
Can you tell me, please, which ER would be better- UW, Swedish or Harborview?

This is Dr. David
I would bring him to University of Washington
they should be able to get him to see an orthopedic doctor on call there.
here are the good orthopedic foot surgeons at UofW
