Do I have a case regarding a misdiagnosis?

Question Details: I was sent to a podiatrist for Archilles tendon pain 1 1/2 years ago. This podiatrist diagnosed me with Archhilles Tendonitis. He treated me for over a year and I was not getting better. I asked my insurance to let me see another podiatrist. After taking X-rays that the first podiatrist did not take, I was diagnosed with a fractured heel bone spur. The only treatment available is surgery.
