Yes Podiatry practice survived COVID 19 or the Coronavirus and everybody thinks everything is going to be fine. But COVID is going to change things. A disease killed over 100k Americans and there was nothing Podiatrists could do to help. This is going to have long term issues to the viability of Podiatry.
Also PAs and NPs are going to increase further in number due to an imaginary demand for their services. Additionally, right now Podiatrists are seeing lot of patients due to pent up demand. But with some areas of the economy at 15% unemployment that will start to abate around August. High unemployment also means people have lost their employer sponsored health plan. That ingrown toenail that used to have Blue Cross now has Medicaid. That is going to be an issue. Lehrman can teach you to code but he cannot change the insurance of the patient you are seeing (yet).
