In brief: Yes
Assuming it is an avulsion (i.
e. No bone involvement, in which case it would be an amputation), this should be seen by a doctor for bleeding control, evaluation for antibiotics, and a tetanus update. If this is an amputation, then a definite yes to see the doctor.

Stop bleeding, tetunus vaccine, may need graft to the tip to close the open wound.
