What a wonderful cathartic The Podiatry Post is. After 40 years of living with internal sequestration of the sour sordid aspects and men in podiatry I can expel the foul detritus that has kept podiatry down. I’m just sorry, for me personally, that Ill never live to see the metamorphous of this trade into a profession. Although I will never experience the satisfaction, at least I can rest knowing I helped “lance the boil” on the butt of the foot dr. business. Undoubtedly, The Podiatry Post is having its effect on the once sole propaganda machine of Barry Block and… Read more »

It was propaganda—a show about nothing. And little shyster Larry mocks us ( while getting more wealthy) with simpleton “articles” abt smelly socks, fake “MDs” dp WTFs lecturing in some foreign 3rd world shithole, silly shoes, and toenail horrors. A scum bag shyster. A little weasel. Money was His God

If Podiatry continues to be represented by BARRY BLOCK it will continue to be a laughing stock. Did you read his STUPID ARTICLE about BURNOUT? I mean this is high school level nonsense. Barry, by what authority do you have a say in anything about stress and its treatment? At best you’re a former foot technician not allowed to do psychology or psychiatry. Just because both start with a P as PODIROQUACKERY that does not give you license. This guy calls himself dr.??! Please look at his picture. While I don’t normally take physiognomy into account that picture speaks a… Read more »

Elliott the Idiot is like the jelly of the month club (cousin Eddie in Christmas Vacation) the “gift that keeps on giving”. Here’s a guy who is a toe nail and callus chiropodist, shooting off his yapper about surgery. Surgery Elliott ? The best is his suggestion that podiatrists are light years ahead of medicine with their Probber, Roven stab and grind surgeries. Idiot indeed you are. Why then are the majority of papers in JFAS and every other foot and ankle surgery journal from M.D.’s ? M.D.’s do 200 surgeries for every one done by a pod you idiot,… Read more »

Burn out / stress tips from BM news! 1. Floss your toes daily. 2. Beware of hot sand and stay away from smelly feet, 3. Watch out for high heel dangers. 4. Take lotsa vacations, maybe Hawaii and visit gassyworths 2nd home, 5. Sleep a lot and ban, censor, delete contrarian viewpoints, 6. Eat good food —paid by others of course!. 6. Travel on others dimes by selling propaganda. 7. Only talk abt happy things and massage delusionally optimistic stories to line shyster pockets. 8. Drive fancy cars to impress customers. 9. Hire a prostitute to get a happy feeling… Read more »

Barry is a complete moron. And Barry is happy to post Elliot the Idiot’s nonsensical stupidity.
Shoes with teeth and pom poms and pumpkins. Barry you are so so so lucky you never practiced law. You would have failed miserably. You are a loser.

Broheem, the grass is not greener. Liver transplant – good luck finding one, kidney? (pt) Lotsa luck – I am burned out. You become the person of last resort. There are better resorts—Please do not envy

I know the lifers think I’m a downer, a negative Nellie and a “hater”, but they’re wrong. I’m a realist and an honest person so, when I (we) post realities that are INCONGRUENT with the deception lifer’s have sewn for themselves, the onus is on them to prove me (us) wrong. Let’s get SPECIFIC. Seth’s post is about the squealing of the biomechanic loving lifers who are howling that they’re beloved field of arch supports (orthotics if you prefer) are being co-opted by other NON MD ENTITIES. They were LEAD to believe arch supports were MEDICAL APPLICANCES (perhaps like RX… Read more »

When you don’t know what the hell to do, it’s the ‘ol 2° varus from neutral RF post. Don’t forget to match the FF post. And…. dorsiflex that 1st ray/pull down on the hallux so you don’t end up heat gunning the arch of a non-wearable “orthotic”. Medical, eh? Doctors, eh? Does your PCP have a heat gun and a toaster oven in the office? No grinder needed, just use the Dremel that the patients get. What bullshit.

A NON MD PODIATRIST IN THE ER: Quick nurse give me his vitals. RN (REAL nurse): BP 90/50, Pulse 53, irregular irregularity, O2 Sat 80% , Hgb 9 K+ 2.3 meq/L. Anything else “dr”? YES nurse!!!: What is his “WALKING SPEED”!!!. Yes, the wtf’s added a new VITAL SIGN: WALKING SPEED. And I thought podiatry had exhausted every angle to look relevant. But they keep reinventing the CON. Well, Rez applicants for a foot apprenticeship, you’d better know the NORMAL VALUE for Walking Speed when you go for your interview. Non MD’s love minutia to look sophisticated. And that insecure… Read more »

The difference between a “Confidence man” and a “Quack”. A “Confidence man” is just interested in your pocket book. A QUACK can actually hurt you while going for your pocket book”

TRUE OR FALSE? TWO OF THE MAJOR, NEAR RELIGIOUS, DOCTRINES OF A WTF SCHOOL ARE: 1. “THE MD DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE FOOT AND 2. “WE’RE THE BEST” BECAUSE “WE KNOW BIOMECHQUACTICS”. These two thoughts are held tenaciously by lifers. Up until the 70’s, when Root came up with a GREAT SALES IDEA CALLED ORTHOTIC BIOMECHQUATICS, ARCH SUPPORTS WERE JUST THAT, SOMETHING THAT SUPPORTS THE ARCH…. and they worked pretty well. Roots ideas were never PROVEN but they sounded plausible so books were written ($$$made) lectures, seminars, and foot school courses added (had to fill the curriculum with something.… Read more »

Lets speak in true scientific terms….a true biomechanical exam starts at c1 all way down to the subtalar joint taking into account muscle mass of both legs, etc etc…….DPMs do a podo mechanical then let the 20 year olds at the orthotic lab make the orthotics the way they know how….no science behind this. I should know, my 84 year-old Nana took a piece of cardboard box, took my 12 year-old feet at the time, outlined them on the cardboard box and cut out 2 cardboard inserts which I placed into my Sunday shoes and my feet felt great. what… Read more »

I agree that these insecure turds simply don’t want to share the greed. But I also think in addition to the financial concerns of losing money to these stores, they are accusing the Good Feet stores of telling customers that the orthotics ARE custom made and are being charged several hundred bucks for a device that’s coming out of a box.

Good luck with that one, Mr. Dr. Poddie. I’m pretty sure the local Bad Feet store in my area has one as one of the owners…

Correct. You can’t make this shit up. Podiatrists were in a class by themselves. Loserville. You only chose podiatry because it chose you.
