Beware of NDE
According to PM News, the overwhelming majority of podiatrists consider themselves a “medical specialty”.
Yeah, and I consider myself an all pro quarterback. And this Kravitz guy writes some nonsensical gibberish about non podiatrists doing what podiatrists do.
Suppose this is a reverse parity ? If non podiatrists are moving into the “domain” of podiatrists how is that parity ?
And why does he always have to say he runs a wound care organization ?
Then we have the old just add gynecology, pediatrics and psychiatry and there you go, the MD degree is yours.
This is all some type of sad psychological disorder, a failure to perceive or live with reality. Here is reality.
You will never ever ever be a real MD (sorry Armstrong, Ross, Sokoloff, Graziano). You know, one that actually practices as an MD.
Go ahead, do a pelvic examination. Or an appendectomy. Or treat ADD in a 10 year old child.
How about trimming some fingernails. Try it without graduating from medical school and getting a real MD license.
And that evil Rosalind Franklin keeping the DPM down on the farm. Sorry, I’m a little slow.
Explain again what obstetrics and gynecology has to do with podiatry. I missed that class.
Yep. That’s what I thought.
Nail Dust Encephalopathy (NDE) That’s the problem.
Saw one of those late night lawyer ads. Same people who tell you that if you’ve been exposed to talcum powder and have cancer, you know the rest.
Well they are running a new ad. “If you’ve been exposed to a podiatry school and think you are a medical specialist, you may be entitled to money”.
NDE. Apparently a form of dementia. The victims suffer from a memory deficit. They forget that they were rejected from medical school.
They forget they graduated podiatry school. They forget ethical treatment of patients. They forget science.
They do not forget billing and a collection of codes and techniques. They suffer from the delusion they are equal to an MD.
They send money to the NDE Support Organization, the apma.
They sing “Some day my prince will come, Somewhere over the rainbow” while selling fungus nail creams, magical arch supports, and reading (and believing) PM News.
NDE. Maybe Pfizer can give us a vaccine. We can call it Project Fast Foot.
Until then I’ll keep waiting for my 35 million a year contract to be quarterback of the Jets. After all, I am an all pro quarterback.
Because I said so.
