Need a good dietician, any suggestions?

I need a dieticians that can help me with a diet plan of the foods I like to eat. I’ve tried all of these diabetic food plans and they have all failed because they are full of foods I don’t like to eat. I have a very narrow palate. I need a dietitian who can go off of the scripted diet plan and can truly customize a plan that is right for the patient’s needs.

I tried to break up a fight between my 2 dogs and got a bad bite on my finger. The wound has healed but after 13 weeks is still sore.

There are 2 things almost poking through my skin that are very painful. I had it x-rayed and they said it wasn't broken. The doctor put me on an antibiotic just in case it was infected but it's just getting worse. Any idea what it could be?
