Need advice on 15 month old walking pigeon toed? The family doctor say she may need braces but he doesn't sound like he knows what he's dealing with and he hasn't referred us to an orthopaedic specialist. It's almost impossible to see a specialist unless we get a referral from our family physician? Family doctor told us to make her wear her right shoe on her left foot and her left shoe on her right foot? Our daughter doesn't feel comfortable walking in her shoes that way? I think it hurts her feet? What should we do?

We did ask for a referral to see an Orthopaedic Specialist at the Children's Hospital and his secretary told us that there were no doctors in our area (Quebec) available for him to refer us to, unless we drive to Montreal which presents a huge problem as we have five other children. My husband is the main care giver. I would have to take time off my job and if I asked for time off, I might get fired, as I've already taken quite a few days off re: family matters.
