Truly a stupid trade because it’s made up of dolts! “Can anyone recommend 2 books on wound healing”? Aww, do I have to look it up myself? Why didn’t I learn, or they teach it, in my quack school or in subsequent apprentice years? Oh, you know “the procedure you want to do will most likely fail? Well, try an Arthrex sling”. Don’t not do it when there’s money to be made and a pretentious image to sell. “I took out a benign lesion and they wont pay me.” (because they didn’t think it needed to be done) “What do… Read more »

It’s about the love of the medical community and helping patients. Podiatrists are experts, like dentists, foot dentists. We need to love our customers/clients/patients, and sell them plastic crap online from bozo’s shit house. If you’re stressed, grab your dermatioscope, hold it firmly, make sure it’s well oiled, a dry, creeky dermatioscope is no bueno, maybe with a brother, and get that stress relief from those silly shoe news rag. Thank you brothers, can you trust, your podiatrust or the package insert reader? He needs to make at least 5mill a year. He’s so so so brillant. I love giving… Read more »

A beautiful girl DOES NOT HAVE TO ADVERTISE FOR A MAN. They’re after her like honeybees around flowers. An ugly loser has to advertise, wear colorful clown clothes, and have a “shtick”. You know where I’m going with this. MD’s don’t have to advertise. They’re busy and needed but ASHIM WADEHRA AND TRUSHA JARIWADA are featured that they GOT A JOB! BIG NEWS IN PODIATRY, LIKE IN, CAN YOU BELIEVE, I’M ACTUALLY PULLING OFF THE “I’M LIKE A DOCTOR” RUSE? It’s just a matter of time before they’re like ALLAN BOIKE needing to advertise about BLISTERS! Boike says cover them… Read more »

Not an MD but made big bucks

If I wanted the responsibility of a physician, I would have applied to medical school. BUT my college GPA was 3.17, perfect for Podiatry School. Perfect for a technical trade. There is no diagnostic knowledge needed in Podiatry. Cut , debride , tape, inject cast. and SELL ! Too bad its all ending, great way to make a living in the 1990s and early 2000s but now all done. The Podiatry schools ( yes Podiatry Schools, not Podiatric Medical Schools ) have screwed things up along with ACFAS and APMA by telling the kiddies they will be surgeons. Very wrong.… Read more »

Orthotic sales must be down. Yes, that non medical plastic/leather panacea that podiatrist Sell to keep their businesses open. Sure, after years of brainwashing without criticism permitted, podiatrists are brainwashed into believing (“custom” ha) arch supports work significantly better than otc arch supports. Barry Block must have gotten a threat. Something like, write an article to remind the podiatrists (especially the younger ones) that they need to sell more. So, we see Block’s associates in Podiatry Mismanagement talking about ORTHOTICS AND BIOMECHQUACTICS. Those NON MEDICAL products that differentiates podiatrist from science and medicine. Podiatric biomechquactics is just that. It’s NOT… Read more »

Danny Boy, Robert presents facts and truths. Are these facts scary? What was it abt truths and realities that offended you?

always the lie from APMA

Podiatrists are not physicians, cant be a physician with a limited license. DPMs are slowly withering away from society. Dont need them, we offer nothing special in healthcare except big bills, and that is coming to an end with CPT codes going away

To me, Barry Block sounds like a SHIFTY SHYSTER. He obliquely supports HIS ADVERTISERS LIKE ROOT et. al. that SELL SHOE SUPPORTS by claiming the old lie that biomechanics should be reemphasized in quack schools and apprentice ships. It is a frequent complaint that the con and unscientific irreproducible theories and tenets of biomechquactics is being ignored. Block claims biomechquactics has been put on the “back burner” in order for podiatry to achieve parity with Medicine. Perhaps that’s because mainstream medicine DOESN’T BELIEVE IN MAGIC PLASTIC SHOE INSERTS and at best feels that should be relegated to NON MD’S like… Read more »

It did not matter what they were buying, ‘earning’ or selling. It was all about the hustle. Opportunists. Careerists. Sickos. The doctor thing? Yah right….that was the window dressing–the stethscopes, the lab coat, the bullshit nonsense ‘certrifications’, the continuing edumacation, the shoe stories, the leevie from the grave recycled stories of water is wet, winter cold, all clowns. Yet, like Danny boy, they proudly walk around very positively, with shit on their lips. Why was that? Was being a dolt in their DNA?

If it wasn’t IN their DNA then it must have BEEN IN THE ENVIRONMENT THEY WERE NURTURED IN!

Danny Boy—-any thoughts? You’re a surgeon, a singer, a proud DP WTF, a vociferous reader of Shlock’s silly shoe pictures and propaganda “news”, it’s almost 2021! Why o why would anyone question if a DP WTF is a doctor or not? All those dues and fees payments, gavel clanking mtgs, all those porkjects, and proclamations, ” “physician” yammer, salvations of limbs, package insert reader ID “experts”/CONsultants, “residencies”, dermatoscopic exams, numerous podiatrick bored exams, and continuing flatulent ed, etc..etc.. who would dare qsn if a DP WTF is a doctor? Maybe write in and ask Shlock’s readershit why it’s almost 2021… Read more »

The real reality is , you went to Podiatry school. PERIOD. my brother went to medical school and I went to Podiatry school. The first two years may be somewhat the same but that is where it ends. My 3rd and 4th year rotations were in podiatry clinics at a hospital, when I did a general medical rotation, it was brief and really unsupervised. The Podiatry residents at the hospital roamed the floors looking to book cases. My 2 year residency was really a waste of time, could have done it in one year, ( I am a 2009 Podiatry… Read more »

“…first two years MAY be somewhat the same”. SOMEWHAT is the operative word. And that does not mean “THE SAME”! More TANGENTIAL ASSOCIATION. In other words.. MISLEADING, or more accurately,….LYING!

Of course I’m going to say I told you so. You can’t keep living a lie. Realists have been warning you that podiatry IS NOT WHAT IT SAYS IT IS. The audacity of saying you went to Medical School and are a Physician is A PSYCHOLGICAL DEFICIENCY. NO podiatry school, No Barry Block, NO APMA lie is fooling those that count… the MD’s and the mainstream medical community. Face it “dr” you are not a DOCTOR. YOU didn’t go to Medical School. YOU ARE NOT REALLY A FOOT SPECIALIST AS IN SPECIALIST! You just do one part of the anatomy… Read more »
