Recently Heard at a Covid Vaccination Site
A patient receives a shot in a clinical trial for a potential coronavirus vaccine. U.S. intelligence officials say Russian hackers are attempting to break into U.S. health care organizations working on a vaccine.

Recently Heard at a Covid Vaccination Site

Hello, I’m here for my covid vaccine.

OK.  I’m doctor Talus.  I’m a foot and ankle surgeon.

Oh OK.  Well nice to meet you.  Which arm shall I use ?

Well, I notice your shoe is stretched out in the front, do you have a bunion ?

Yes I do.  I’ve had it for years.  It’s never hurt me.

I think we better take a look.

Are you sure.  I’m here for my covid injection.

Trust me.  I’m a doctor, sort of.  Let’s look.  Oh my, you have a fungus toenail.  You need some Formula 99 for that infection.

But I just need my vaccine.

I’m a doctor.   I know what you need.  I’ll just have that nurse supervise me for this injection, then we can talk.

Ouch !  That’s the most painful shot I’ve ever had.  Felt like you hit the bone. 

No.  Didn’t hit the tibia.

Tibia ?   I thought it’s the humerus bone in my arm.

Nope.  I’m a doctor.  Tibia I think.  Anyway, you need to buy some Formula 99 and will need immediate toenail laser surgery. 

We need to schedule this before you can have your second injection.  This will protect you from COVID toes. 

Are you sure about this ?

Will that be cash or check ?

You’re a doctor ?

Yes.  I graduated from medical school.  Board certified by ABPM.  I’m also an AAPPM fellow.  

Well I only have a check.

I’ll take it.  Thank you.  And by the way, when you come in for your laser surgery we need to schedule your MIS bunion surgery.

OK

Nurse.  Nurse .

Yes Dr. Talus.  You have a question ?

I do.   Can I mix the covid vaccine in the same syringe as my lidocaine and bupivacaine injection when I inject that women for her bunion ?

I really don’t know Dr. Talus.  Do you wish me to call the pharmacy ?

No need.  I’ll write into PM News for the answer.

Oh OK. 

Oh nurse, I don’t suppose you know the code for billing that do you ?

A bunch of nail dust

My residency: Learn how to sell Surgery or you wont graduate this program…… The bunion will get bigger and then require a more complicated procedure. The bunion will start to cause you to lose balance and you could break a hip. the arthritis in the bunion may spread to your other joints. The bunion does not hurt now but later it will and it will cause you to limp. The bunion will push other toes to the side and you will need more surgery. Our resident director has invented procedures for a bunion surgery and he has done thousands. (… Read more »

You just can’t get that NEW YAWK HARLEM SLUM QUACK SCHOOL SALESMAN SHIP HISTORY OUT OF THE FIELD. A SOLID CORE OF “TRUE BELIEVER BUSINESSMEN” RUN THE SCHOOLS AND POLITICS. I 100% believe “nail dust’s” expose’ of the SO CALLED “residency”. (advanced sales class, indenture for 3 years, an ATM of foot surgery are alternate descriptions of the podiatric APPRENTICESHIP). Whether you did 0 or 3 years post quack school everyone is given essentially the same LIMITED LICENSE.

BIG POD 3rd year Resident

Best part of a Podiatric Residency. I have an apple watch and I have lost weight from walking around doing nothing !!!!!!!! except Podiatry clinic days. Surgery? Past two years has trickled down to near zero.

Watch out Big Pody, you might get censored in the new old shit hole. Anything that they don’t like, gets banned, deleted, black listed, shadow banned, modified, warning labels, etc..etc.. just ask fuckerberg and the third world $12 an hour lackey who’s “job” it is to delete truth

What is progress?

My opinions are: Part of informed consent is giving full disclosure of risks benefits and consequences of corrective surgery especially if a bunion is not painful. The patient should be told that even if the bunion is not painful, one complication of attempted surgical correction is pai, infection, possible need for recovery time and missing work etc… Once full disclosure is given, most patients opt to not have surgical correction. My one question is how can podiatric residents give such disclosure and generate the cases needed to graduate from a podiatric teaching program? This is one reason why podiatric residency… Read more »

Podiatrists do NOT attend residency, nor a residents. this has been explained to you many, many times Danny. There is NO such thing as “podiatric” “residency”. Why do you keep stating these factually incorrect comments. Podiatrists go to post grad training programs that are NOT regulated by the ACGME, ABMS, and are self regulated. Why do you keep repeating erroneous statements? And “graduating” from a podiatric “teaching program”? WTF is that? A followshit? Staring at backs of necks, holding retractors, fetching coffee, clipping nails, pasting felt on feet? Podiatry=Fking clown school.

I think the Board of Professional Discipline should be notified of Dan’s ABNORMAL BEHAVIOR AND EVALUATE HIS ABILITY TO RUN HIS FOOT BUSINESS. Again and again he aks the same questions indicating serious mental damage from his being rejected from a program. He continues to try to find loop holes questioning the very programs he feels injured by. His lack of acceptance for reality, to me, suggests defective mentation. Along with his SELF ASCRIBED DERMATOSCOPIC techniques I think he’s boarderline delusional about what he is. He is not a surgeon. He is not a Dermatologist. He’s a frustrated insecure podiatrist… Read more »

100% correcto Robert. In our personal opinions, maybe a cognitive deficit, or psychosis-loss of contact w/reality.

He likely can’t help himself. It IS podiatric Stockholm syndrome. The abused apologises and justifies his abuse while he sinks further and further defending horrible polices and SUPPORTING the corrupt dmp orgs. There appears something way off with him. It’s bizarre, yet predictably podiatrick. Maybe another write-in into Shylocks propaganda blast.

Dany Boy, did they answer your excellent question about the $725 steal for a joke re, re exam? If they did, what did you think of their answer? Is this very podiatrick? Why do gleefully/voluntarily support the pod orgs that f you? Is it a pig in a poke-yup, and you are their perfect mark-dupe. Someday, that dog will talk. In the meantime, keeping paying and spinning your wheels. Maybe you indeed need some shoe “stress relief” (ahem) form shrimpster comedic “news” blast? Also, what does the editor of the journal of dermatioscopy think? Was this $725 fraud another money… Read more »
