Will COVID kill the Podiatry grifter?

Will COVID kill the Podiatry grifter?

As Eddie likes to say a lot of Podiatrists’ main form of making money is “Making money off other Pods”.  But what happens to this special breed of Podiatrists if the other Pods don’t have any money?

Cannot sell balance braces if Podiatrists cannot see patients and elderly cannot come to the office.

Cannot sell marketing if there are no patients to market to.

Cannot up-charge and sell at appointments if all the patients are broke.

Cannot have BS conferences for $500 per person if nobody is able to travel.

The worst part of all: when people are desperate they don’t want to hear your BS anymore. The jig is up for so many grifters. Nobody wants to hear Rem Jackson overstate the obvious for an hour now. Nobody is listening. Everyone is busy trying to survive. So pour one out for the Podiatry grifters.

Those of you that read the letter from Bret Ribotsky into PM News are probably still vomiting. The question really is what illness does he have. This is a guy who actively campaigned to be elected to the so-called podiatry Hall of Fame. So he writes a letter into PM News telling us what a fabulous lecturer he is and has been. Does he suffer from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome or some connective tissue disease? After all it appears his arms are long enough and flexible enough to give himself repeated pats on the back. Perhaps it is simply some type of… Read more »

Hallux Guy—that was one of your best analysis of podiatry pathology. Outstanding critical thinking. ….Contributions of sex to his Dermatologist concubine, and suffering from Erhlers -Danlos syndrome from all the repeated pats on the back….spot on Mr Hallux. Thinking drug dealer Jokeseph is like Debakey….there appears a psychosis -loss of contact with reality. Mental illness with many Dp wtfs. Narcopaths.

Seth points out (in COVID and Sales) what the podiatry schools and the APMA-lifers keep hidden. And that is, Podiatry, on it’s own, can’t exist easily. Podiatry’s back bone is toenail trimming, callus scraping, and arch support selling. 90% of the practices could not exist without those nail salon type services. Selling is IMPERATIVE. Sales of ORTHOTICS (I hate those things because I don’t believe in their theory) are the #1 sales item. They make up a significant amount of income to make up for the narrow license and conditions a podiatrist is allowed to treat. An ingrown nail or… Read more »

Just a little tidbit on peri-ungual erythema, discomfort (that’s not oozing pus): Corticosporin Neomycin etc., otic and ophthalmic drops (viscosity differs) spare your patients the avulsions and soaks. A few drops (it’s documented in the literature) works. When it doesn’t you know what to do, but at least you’ve exhausted all options. That’s the art of medicine and surgery: Do everything you can to avoid a procedure that’ll hurt like a MF. Don’t get me be misunderstood here, if you know that sucker has to be removed, cellulitis, edema, clear cut clinical presentation: Use your judgement not your wallet—Assuredly, in… Read more »

Well intentioned Eddy, but if Mr. P can’t bill for it as much as for a “procedure” you know what the patient will get. Podiatry is a BUSINESS designed for the PODIATRIST NOT THE PATIENT.

Estafador, or female estefadora, ladrón, maybe using another language – Los podólogos son ladrones que se alimentan entre sí (Ps are mostly thieves)…you pretty much hear a lot of that in Spanish speaking communities, and foot folks are pretty much content with their lot in life in Mexico, Spain, Bolivia, Peru…eh, most countries where they haven’t lived by the grand “HAMSTER WHEELING” (T) of the US—In the US you ARE your FICO score, and don’t answer this: How many people check their credit score—as it doesn’t reduce you to a number, or Lexus Nexus. I was shopping for some new… Read more »

MK ULTRA, nice E. Operation Paperclip too post WWII, those Nazis became US citizens and helped the US govt to develop even greater propaganda and war industries. Throw that dumb phone into the toilet where it belongs.

Excellent U Tube selection Eddy. Everyone should listen to it. I love the “amputation of spirit” sentiment. That’s occurs early in podiatry. When you learn you’ll never be above the ankle (except in a very few rare states) and can NEVER treat any systemic disease (in all 50 states) the spirit of learning and questioning is lost. Why bother they think? I can’t do it. I can’t get paid for it. I’m not recognized as competent in it…. so “f” it. Feet shoes and sales are their ‘forte”.
