Patient Stories

Patient Stories: Anna Kirkorian

Xavion Chisley

Xavion's Story

Sometimes a mom’s intuition is all it takes to get her child to the right physician. When 8-year-old Xavion Chisley developed a fungal infection on his toe, his mother, Nikki, immediately took him to see a dermatologist who removed his toenail to treat the infection.  However, when Xavion’s toenail grew back, the infection had not diminished but actually appeared to be spreading to his foot.
