Pandemic and Podiatrists still work the Nail Salon beat
A woman leaves an empty nail salon in the South Boston neighborhood of Boston, Tuesday, March 17, 2020. For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms. For some, it can cause more severe illness, especially in older adults and people with existing health problems. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

Pandemic and Podiatrists still work the Nail Salon beat

One of the truly remarkable aspects of this Pandemic is in the midst of virus that has killed over 100k Americans there are still Podiatrists releasing PR articles talking about the dangers of Nail Salons for fungal toenails. It’s amazing that they think anybody, and I mean anybody, cares about this stuff right now. Let me give Podiatrists a clue: the biggest dangers of Nail Salons right now is catching a virus that can kill you, not fungus.

Kinda like Yaron Raducanu’s arrogant blog he wrote in Podiatry Today a number of years back. Cybly, would you know where Dr. Raducanu works now ? Is he still job hopping ? Playing the guitar ? Flying his model helicopters.
Any info you have would be appreciated, Cybly.

Syble,

This reminded me of Yaron Raducanu’s Podiatry Today blog some years back. Dr. Raducanu also wrote a dissertation to “all sales people”. I wonder if Dr. DeHeer’s son, who runs two of his daddy’s orthopedic companies, read his father’s blog. I would love to hear Dr. DeHeer’s son’s opinion of the blog.

I mean, HOW STUPID CAN YOU GET? PODIATRISTS ARE JUST PLAIN STUPID. Podiatrist BLOCK FROM FLORIDA is ecstatic that the APMA got dp wtf added to a list of essential workers along with Chiro’s, nurses and psychologists. Oh how important the APMA IS AND WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THEM? How DEPENDENT ARE YOU THAT YOU NEED THE APMA YOU BLOCK HEAD? Don’t you see that it’s PRECISELY BECAUSE OF THE FAILURE OF THE APMA THAT PODIATRY WAS IGNORED IN THE FIRST PLACE!! PODIATRY IS A NON ENTITY IN THE MAINSTREAM. NO ONE THINKS ABOUT IT OR INCLUDES IT.

“ARROGANT AND IGNORANT”—So that’s the degree change: DPMAI, or DIPMAI—sounds like something a takeout Chinese menu: A pu pu platter, pu-pu platter or pupu platter is a tray of mystery food—very DIPMAI, along with subgum (substandard) chow mien, or mystery egg rolls. Ask yourself, would Forest Gump order this? Podiatrists do podiatry, and have shown us all the obdurate unwillingness to incorporate CORE CLERKSHIPS, rigid preclinical sciences. As Joker D’Pody DPMAI once said, “I opened up my friggin’ fortune cookie and read the slip that said I ain’t got no future-WTF? I’m a boed, (as in bow-ed-cerfied surgeon, just look… Read more »

The SILENCE in OPPOSITION to what we say here is NOT because no one reads these blogs but BECAUSE THEY CAN’T MOUNT AN HONEST DEBATE. Podiatry HIDES in it’s own lies, and in its own blogs. It dare not come out into the sunlight. Thriving in the dark…. like a MUSHROOM. (that’s a FUNGUS to you Practice management salesmen). BARRY BLOCK, you read and HIDE everyday to say nothing that YOU CENSOR LIKE A FACIST. BLOCK,YOU are NOT EVEN MAN ENOUGH to take a swing. Hiding in the closet with your SHOE COLLECTION?

Those tingling paresthesia’s you feel, the slight numbness about your face, and the swooning syncope that comes over you when you see a SHOE CAN BE EXPLAINED BY MD DOCTORS.

1976 and still no MD. Reality. Podupetrists thinking that “change” will or can occur actually believe this sorta poop is equivalent to substantive change for minority groups or america being a real country instead of a business of hustlers and hucksters with no common values –330 million used car salesmen and shop lifters (Hunter Thompson and Gore Vidal). Cosmetic/symbolic/aesthetic change means that most don’t know shit from Shinola, and progressive, conservatives and other american dumbos do not. Basically, their lives amounted to bupkis.

Yeah, at least change the letters to some that have a connection with real medicine. The APMA can’t even re arrange a few letters, but if you send in more money they’ll work hard and have DINNER meetings and COCK tails to discuss the idea for the next 10 years. How stupid do you have to be to feed these FRAUDS? Podiatrists really are STUPID.

Amazon has cheap prefab. A patient can buy one maybe for $20 from amazon, bring it into the office and a podiatrist can add felt to the device, grind the device down and do so at no additional charge to the patient.

Why not put felt into a patients shoe and try to save them money. Why not include this as part of the visit and do not charge the patient extra for this? We are in a pandemic and it is a good to help others even if the cannot afford to pay for a visit.

As far as becoming a rabbi, priest or religious person, all wonderful choices, I learned so much about dermatoscopy and invented dermatoscopic foot surgery to get toes to regrow, I am being encouraged by my patient who is an md, their family, and other mds to continue as a podiatrist.

Doctor Whoever,

Don’t get duped. I got duped. I got duped big time. I was a slow learner. I did not realize I was getting duped.
Yes, the AAPPM with Hal Ornstein at the helm duped me. I just watched those two “web power videos” by Gary Ignofsky. I would love to know where you found them. Hal was Chad’s uncle. Chad was Hal’s nephew. Hal does not tell you this in his testimonial of Integrated MedReps. When Hal was thrown out of the AAPPM his nephews business disappeared IMMEDIATELY. Enough said, Doctor Whoever !

I think that Kathleen lady was the sister of Chad’s first wife. I also think Chad may now be divorced from her sister and re-married. Don’t know for sure. But I do know Chad’s company went in the toilet when Uncle Hal was thrown out of the AAPPM.

The TRUTH about podiatry has ALWAYS BEEN HIDDEN. Because it’s a NOT NEEDED, NOT FULLY MEDICAL, “PROFESSION”, business is hard to come by so COMPETITION WITH NAIL SALONS AND “THE GOOD FEET STORES” WORRIES MANY. Sure there are a few busy medical-LIKE practices and those are the ones heralded to be representative, BUT THEY ARE NOT. MOST podiatrist cut toenails everyday and MOST podiatrist TRY TO SELL a few pairs of orthotics each day. Unlike Medical Doctors who were trained in all aspects of medicine and are LICENSED AS TRUE FULLY FUNCTIONING PHYSICIANS, PODIATRISTS HAVE A DIFFERENT MINDSET. PHYSICIANS (most… Read more »

I don’t understand why Barry Block keeps copying and pasting press release of Pods trashing nail salons. It’s very foolish and shows extreme jealousy of the Pods showing that they are bothered by this. Here is one for you, Barry. See if you can find ONE, JUST ONE, press release trashing a nail salon by a foot and ankle orthopedist. I got news for you Barry, you will never find one. So Barry your DPM degree IS NOT EQUAL to an MD/DO foot and ankle orthopedist. Orthopods do not do residencies in Psychiatric Hospitals like you did your podiatric residency… Read more »

Excellent Eddy. I can always glean a pearl from your prose. This time you’ve struck the nugget of the podiatry problem: “They’ve pushed the SURGERY bit too far.” How perfectly telling. In an end run around proper learning protocol podiatry skipped most of medicine and went right to “ORTHOPEDIC MECHANICS” (eddy) where you can “look like YOU MUST HAVE LEARNED MEDICINE, but didn’t, and just went rote. When the Chicago Salesman sold me their school they had me observe a “surgery” As a lay man I said to myself, well this MUST BE A MEDICAL SCHOOL, how can you do… Read more »

The ‘Blind Barber’ could help (you could lose an ear or if the cat trims nose hair…those nose prostheses have a certain scary look). Never took much stock in barbers, rather go to ‘hair stylist’ with nice tits—you pay a little more, but if you have long hair you’ve gotta have the full treatment (I do), and get my nails done too, AND my toenails…Think about what a relatively simple license can do (aesthetician)—You could cut toenails, get a trim, chemical peel, and spiff you up just right. Then you get some nice duds (partial to Boss, Brioni, F Armani,… Read more »
