Just was looking at the HUSTLER HUCKSTER ADS in Barry Block’s money maker. A guy, TAE JUN AHN is “giving a book away”. He claims he’s an IMMIGRANT FROM SOUTH KOREA WHO CAME TO THE U.S. @ age 19 and COULDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH. He ended up getting into a FOOT FRANCHISE SCHOOL OF PODIATRY and wants to tell you how he makes 6-7 figures!! in the foot biz.. He use the title DR. on the cover. I didn’t see anything saying he was a wtf. His video says he’s a podiatrist. He does refer to becoming and being a ‘DOCTOR’… Read more »

To Robert Bijak and Barry Block :

Dr. Ahn reminds me of four other DPM’s.
That is Hal Ornstein, John Gulliana, Peter Wishnie and Lowell Weil Jr.
None of these four give away anything for FREE. Everything they offer has a COST !

Do you agree with me, Dr. Block ? Does Dr. Ornstein still sniff your ass ?

I tell my patients I am a podiatrist and my license is limited to treating the feet. I studied texts for years. I usually in questionable cases refer to a dermatologist that uses dermoscopy.

Danny Boy, you have integrity by giving a warning to patients and stating you’re a podiatrist only and not a medical doctor. Your self published made up ‘journal’ is not peer reviewed, it’s just anecdotal observations by you and you write them up. that’s “research”? That sounds podiatric–also why do you still pay your owners? they failed you miserably. do you have Stockholm syndrome? Why do you continually pay the orgs, clubs, etc you $$$ for them to endlessly f you?

I am not a member of the APMA. How can one afford to join? My opinion is if one is honest and upfront with patients, it is difficult to earn a living.
Yes, I do many times disclose when I graduated there was a shortage of residency training programs. I also disclose regarding foot orthotics that there are no guarantees and one could spend and lose their money. Pictures and a PowerPoint presentation is more than an anecdotal observation. Any peer can review the presentation. Try to provide a link showing similar dramatic positive results regarding healing gangrenous osteomyelitic toes.

Does a PowerPoint presentation of actual pictures of an experimental new procedure really have to be peer reviewed before being posted? Any peer seeing the presentation can afterwards review it and make their own decisions after seeing it. Then others may decide to begin more clinical trials. As far as the need for completion of a certified residency program in podiatric medicine. Experience in practice and happy patients with positive results and positive statements from MDs about results gotten are more important. Board certification by ABPM is more important for those who want a Conn license to medically treat the… Read more »

The MD calling you ‘brillant’–(you also called jokesph “brillant” too), is a called an anecdotal example. That’s someone’s opinion. As folks have said:—– Your facts are not truths. You are a podiatrist, and that’s not brillant, nor a compliment. It could have been different, but your leaders/organized podfucketry wanted to keep all the money and power, short sided “thinking” rather than long term build for education and evolution. Perhaps, this is ok because the truth is most DMPS were dumber than a box of rocks.

It does state THOSE TRUTHS doesn’t it DAN? After all, you want the best for your patient-customers so you say.

I think you would have been a liability to a program that’s why you were rejected.
Robert, I have prevented foot amputations. If a teaching program prevents too many surgical amputations this might be considered a liability because there may result a shortage of surgical numbers to meet a programs requirements.

1. ANECDOTAL STORIES OF REFERRALS TO YOU DO NOT MAKE SCIENCE. CEASE AND DESIST YOUR UNFOUNDED CLAIMS.
Robert, you are mistaken. My claim that MD’s are referring to me is not unfounded.

Just because biopsy without dermoscopy is the standard of care, patients can suffer if ominous structures and patterns are missed but would have been discovered had a dermatoscopic image been sent to a pathologist.

A dermatologist at Sloan Kettering told me I discovered an interesting finding helpful in differentiating melanoma vs non melanoma on the acral glaberous, dermatogliphic areas of the soles by using an orange light.

Perhaps if enough people join they can vote and make positive changes. My opinion is joining is so expensive how can many join or join again? I believe to rejoin there should be some sort of financial hardship status. I furthermore believe dues should be more affordable.

Why are you saying people like Danny pay his salary?

No, Danny Boy, the people that join are dumber than a box of rocks and have stockholm syndrome who’s fantasy is thinking they’re needed/doctors/”surgeons”. “Positive” change—?! The only “change” will be in your pocket after the shysters fleece you. Those who join that club– like what podiatry was offering, hence they pay the fees and dues etc..and attend their courses ($). they WANT what podiatry was offering, and that’s who “votes” for the selection (not election). They were true believers like religious fanatics and other brainwashed folks who believe in religion/cults –it’s a way to control sheeple. All your endless… Read more »

Yeah “honest pod “, the good guy loses in this story.

What is progress?
Guest

My opinion is
The honest pod does not always lose everything. For example, even if money is list, they gain the satisfaction of knowing they were honest and helped patients.

Down Arrow

MY practice went down 35%. I don’t see things getting better. Humana is cracking down on elective foot surgery, need notes and digital x-ray for evaluation by a Humana doctor………..>>> They say it may take 4-6 weeks for approval. I am sure other insurance companies will start doing the same.

So “down arrow” you’re saying podiatristS need approval to cut toenails. Podiatrist need to be supervised by nurses for vaccinations and Podiatrists need approval for foot carpentry. Doesn’t say much for podiatric education, the wtf certificate, or for podiatry in general. Seems like podiatrists are viewed as just a bunch of renegade non mainstream TECHNICIANS THAT NEED TO BE LIMITED BY LAW AND SUPERVISED. And they want to be called DOCTORS?! I wonder if Barry Block with his censored misleading SHOE LOVING BLOG has anything to do with that impression?!

WHAT? the quack schools and APMA HAVE BEEN LYING?! I thought “the aging community and diabetics were going to FLOOD THE WAITING ROOM”?! NO? Well, why not? Because of PA’S, NP’S, DO’S, AND MD’S that do the SAME THING, ONLY BETTER, AND IN THE “MAINSTREAM”. Like “VISITOR FROM MARS” SAID in a previous post an orthopod in his bldg. went to COLGATE (IVY LEAGUE), U or Rochester (Med school), Yale( residency) compared to Community College/State U and one of the 9 Franchises (ex. Ohio/Kent, or Barry with 60 students) and between 0 years to 3 WATCHING AS AN APPRENTICE IN… Read more »

Wrong. Colgate is not Ivy League. Colgate is in the Patriot League with Westpoint, Naval Academy, Bucknell, Lehigh, Lafayette, American.

You’re over my head. Would appreciate a “schooling” on the “Patriot League” and the aforementioned schools.

I was also a division 1 athlete and found the campus of Colgate and Bucknell to be incredible. And I know both schools have incredible academics. I know kids that went to both schools. The one who went to Colgate is now an MD and the 3 I know that went to Bucknell are now two MDs and one mechanical engineer. Not too many DPMs going to these schools undergrad.

Ok, I looked it up. Colgate is TECHNICALLY NOT IVY LEAGUE but considered similarly in philosophy of the scholar-athlete-ultra prestigious schools. I think the connotation of high quality undergrad education for an MD vs. generic for a wtf still stands. My only association with Colgate was when we travelled to Colgate with our Track Team and Cross Country team and ran against them. They had a beautiful course (X country) and perfect Track (mile run). They beat us soundly. From my “blue collar” point of view they sure SEEMED Ivy League to me!

Hmm. Never thought of it. That must be it. Podiatry IS a wonderful profession. NP’s, PA’s, MD’s, DO’s, DC’s, C.Ped’s, Good Feet Stores, Shoe Clerks, Dr. Scholl arch support machines, Drug Stores full of foot products, Insurance Company auditors and their LPN nurse reviewers can’t touch “THE” spcialists of the pes.
