Eighteen Year Old Boy Dies after four trips to the Emergency room where they missed an ingrown toenail

Eighteen Year Old Boy Dies after four trips to the Emergency room where they missed an ingrown toenail

This is an incredible story. It took place in Australia and it is a one and a million shot. But how did they not take his socks and shoes off and see this? Man, if Podiatry had a real organization such as the APMA this story could actually be used to get parents’ attention to get them to take their kids to the Podiatrist, but alas. Anyways, this sucks and is a depressing story. For a child today to die from an ingrown toenail is just amazing.

Podiatry was a collective of f ups.

Flatus: That lack of depth MAY be why they (we, I) were rejected from actual Medical School. Pods definitely are NOT “just like”.

Robert, pods were to monkeys, as MDs were to Homo sapiens. Dp wtfs dont want truth, they want fairy tales wrapped in a pink bow with a smiley face. It’s like those “K (Korean) pop” bands filled with effeminate “men” jumping around with purple hair to screaming white worshipping oriental teenie boppers. Something was/is WAY off. Like DP wtfs. Get this–my 85-year old mom called me a few days ago, and starts telling me about life back in the cornfields of dp wtf land–where we grew up and which is actually good ol’ sack of shit Gassy worth foot club… Read more »

ALSO Robert, youre a good person, intellectually and thoughtfully. You CAN connect the dots unlike most Dp wtfs. You got duped like the rest of us. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say. Most were uptight losers who had lots of unresolved mental issues. That’s why podiatry appealed them–lots of gavel clanking, 3 ring binder fun, and meetings and emeetings and meetings galore w/ minutes to make them feel really important. As Caddy Pod would say–the world’s tallest midget or the best smelling fart club. dp wtfery. Dont forget the monthly propaganda glossy for marketing purposes. Have press releases disguisted as… Read more »

Amen brother, amen. The truth meter needle flew off the + side for parts I and II. Podiatry won’t be missed by the “patients”. They’ll gravitate to the easiest/cheapest option- Lee Ho Fooks nail salon comes to mind (beef chow mein included with every pedicure). Hey stupdents/recent gradiates… you diggin’ this? No longer seemingly ranting by a select few crazies- the predictions are coming true. It’s already been happening slowly for several years- hospitals buy the real doctor practices, their PAs and NPs do the higher-skilled podiatry, and we cut toenails. We are not cost effective, and mainstream med has… Read more »

Isn’t education the search for truth? Why were pods so reluctant to discuss or accept reality/truth?

There out there and upset. Hope their mommy doesn’t realize their little boy has been lying. I am a DOCTOR mommy, I AM. I’m “just like.”

GOOD MORNING! Get out the negative votes sick lifers because here’s another dose of the TRUTH 18 years since 9/11 and much has changed in America but not much has changed in PODIATRY. BARRY BLOCK, your voice, is still showing the world pictures of moles (rodents) used as shoes. Yeah, we love that Barry Block. Why would you choose associate podiatry with dead animals but censor and ban sensitive podiatric political questions? We don’t appreciate being associated with dead animals, shoes with teeth, and all your other New York City perversions of the pes that you seem to love. Barry… Read more »

PODIATRY RESIDENCY …….if you want to learn surgery you better find patients…..thats the words of many “residency directors.” A legitimate ACGME hospital would not allow this free for all to occur. My program was not at an ACGME hospital, so us POD residents had the run of the place. In other words we did what we wanted to do as long as pod clinic was covered. We did surgery on anyone….. Heres one for the books, 84 year -old post 6 weeks jones fracture….scheduled the ORIF….. ( it was ALREADY healed) got infected, went septic, died. BUT we got our… Read more »

Puddles that have no no no no no bacteria or garbage in the water. And make sure if you try to avoid stepping into the puddle you do not sprain your ankle. I have seen this happen.

Well “TRUTH”, I guess she should have had MIS! NOTICE that the schools have nothing to say. The “professors” at the schools are silent. No one wants to rock the ship of fools. MIS or open? The debate rages on in a trade that can’t set its own standard. Most quack schools don’t teach MIS yet wtf’s learn in back rooms and at non mainstream seminars. According to Barry Block one writer says he’s increased his surgery to 20/wk from 2/wk a 10 fold increase! NOW THAT’S A NICE LITTLE BUSINESS. The right thing? The moral thing? The scientific thing?… Read more »

A black woman—let’s stop using nonsensical pc terms. Is there an African-Russian or African -Japanese? No. They’re black. Hyphenication was more of bs

Oh Boy is the foot technician business going to use this as their # 1 advertisement tool. “A Podiatrist could HAVE SAVED THIS BOYS LIFE”! Podiatrists: life savers. Australia needs more Podiatry Schools . “See, the foot ISN’T FUNNY. The foot STANDS between life and death.” “We’re doctors too”. We need Eddy for some really well written ads. I noticed they made a big deal of not doing vitals. Well, that sounds like nearly every foot business in the US. I’d say 20% of wtf’s do “some” vitals. Maybe a B.P.. Temp? probably not. Pulse, Probably not. Anything above the… Read more »

Very sad and tragic. Incompetency at it’s finest.
