I was going to do an edit to my post but thought you may not see it, so here it is:
Hoka's increase the width of their frames this year. The Arahi and the Gaviota might also be options
Just bc your doc recommended a stability running shoe doesn't mean your doc understands what a stability running shoe does. If I had $10 for every person who came into The Running Shop who said their doc said they needed a stability shoe bc of whatever when they actually did not need a stability shoe, I'd have at least $1k more in the bank. If you pronate you should think about a stability shoe. If you don't pronate then think about sticking with a neutral shoe.
With forefoot runners we see a lot of them complaining of recurrent calf problems. I think this is due to the increase loading on the gastroc. Even with a high cushioned shoe there is increased loading. There are a couple of studies out there.

There is also a pretty cool study out there where they took people who were accustomed to heel striking and another group accustomed to forefoot striking. They had them run opposite of their preferred pattern (heel strikers ran forefoot and vice versa). Heel striking proved to be most economical in both groups.
We get a lot of forefoot strikers who have gone to less cushioned shoes like Merrills who have more recurrent gastroc problems then forefoot strikers who have gone from less cushioned shoes to more cushioned shoes. ymmv
