Black toenails (subungual hematomas) are bruised toenails that result from blood collecting under the nail. They can be caused by crushing, impact, or injury to the toe, such as dropping something heavy on or stubbing the toe. Runners frequently suffer from black toenails due to the big toe rubbing against the tip of an ill-fitting sneaker. Although black toenails can be painful and tender, treatment is usually not necessary unless there is bone or tissue damage, too.
I was very impressed with the care my daughter received from Dr. Jameson. I was able to schedule a next-day appointment for a new patient. The doctor was efficient and knowledgeable, and her positivity was very comforting for my daughter (who was anxious and in pain). The office staff and x-ray tech were also great. […]
Dear Dr. Green, Thank you and your wonderful office and surgical staff for the excellent care I received. I think my foot is gorgeous and now I’m getting ready to paint my toenails. I haven’t done that for years!

You can’t improve on perfection.
I expected an amazing experience, and we got it. Dr. Christensen was perfect in every way, as was the rest of the staff at KCF&A – LK
I love that Dr. Jameson actually sat down with me, and we looked at the x-rays together. She pointed out everything I needed to see then circled the problem area and explained it so that I knew exactly what my problem was. She was very professional and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend her to friends.
