Is there any reason to go to a doctor for a broken pinky toe?

In brief: Yes

Especially if the toe looks out of place compared to how it looked before the injury.
You also want to make sure it sets and heals in proper alignment, to prevent future deformity and arthritis issues.

In brief: If the fracture

Is not in alignment, is dislocated, open or intraarticular a doctor should take care of it.

In brief: Immobilization

On occasion if it is displaced or dislocated it may require reduction or surgical management.
