Will the 20% ever come back?

Will the 20% ever come back?

Podiatrists are probably overjoyed right now. Podiatrists are seeing a rush after the COVID lockdowns. Ingrown toenails, bunions, plantar fasciitis all crowding in for visits. But after all this comes down what will Podiatrists do with the inevitable 20% revenue drop from the business that isn’t coming back after COVID? Seniors may not come in as frequently. If the recession continues people have lost private health insurance. Add on sales… forget about. Seeing sixty patients in a day is not possible without a vaccine. This 20% reduction is real and it’s coming and there is not much anyone can do about it.

Yep, I definitely had an uptick (pun intended) in patients after resuming in May, but now things are starting to settle. 60 patients/day? I guess if you have all your “certified” PMAs doing the schneiding. But in most states, that’s not legal, right? (hahahahah) I predict (but not hope) that the economy will take a serious shit this fall if there’s a second wave. And that’s the thing- the increased caseload due to relaxed restrictions going on right now isn’t wave #2. Happy times ahead. Unemployment comp is only for 39 wks, with the payout much less than the normal… Read more »

That’s why most millenial fuck ups still live in their parents homes. Weed smoking, porno, sexy tymes, and a lot of nothing. This was the future. Waiting for parent’s to die, inherit the house, and under/un employment. maybe do a clip, skive, and sell the jive.

Greedy foot techs have “snuck” some nail cutters in to increase the bottom line.

Robert-correct as usual. However, the terms: “greedy foot techs” appears redundant. Like moronic Harry Shlock. Scum realturds. Shyster mortgage BROKErs. redundant.

Podiatry offered MD rejects a chance to save face, but they weren’t fooling anyone with an IQ>75.

60 patient a day?! Yeah, we have some mercenary pods that act like dentists here too, providing reflexive mechanical service with MINIMAL MEDICAL MENTAL DEPTH. No good, academic, complete examining, pod can see that many patients and do anything more than a non doctoral simple service. Even BRETT THE MOTOR BOAT RIBTOSY bemoans the loss of biomechquactics where (allegedly) you have to take time to do a gait “analysis”. (sounds better than watch a walk) The Rib self adulates saying he was once the president of the fake medical group ABPPPOOOMMM?!) and says biomechanics will CATAPULT THE PROFESSION FORWARD! YEAH,… Read more »

AA is introducing the latest greatest new gambit since laser fungus treatments – Robert is well educated beyond the P (grad school +), and along with other guys (galls too), Traume, Are, Toe Legit, and all the folks that just faded on account of absurdities of NOT QUITTING to try making P KOLLEGES and training up to the level of vocational nursing…20 plus years we’ve tried, been mocked, belittled and asked if living in our grandma’s basement didn’t shut us up. WELL we will not accept ANOTHER new robust angle to bilk. In RD world sick people can’t get the… Read more »

Eddy spot on regarding podiatrists not being able to treat the face. One problem is not all dermatologists are using dermoscopy. Also dermatologists do not treat osteomyelitis in gangrenous toes using dermoscopy. They are limited in specialty to only treating skin conditions. http://www.journalofdermoscopy.com Podiatry does have economic competition from other specialties. I do not believe DPM degree makes one an expert at treating all foot conditions. The degree does not matter so long as one is licensed and competent at what they do. So long as patients are helped and results are good Patients are usually happy. As far as… Read more »

DAN, Re: “dermatologists are limited by specialty to only treating skin conditions”. Because this statement is FALSE the conclusions are False. Dermatologists are NOT LIMITED PERIOD. They are FULL MD PHYSICIANS who MAY VOLITIONALY CHOOSE to do just skin, BUT THEY ESSENTIALLY HAVE NO LIMITATIONS! You yourself frequently mention the degree is not important if you’re competent in regards to podiatry, so WHY WOULD THIS NOT APPLY TO MD’S WHO HAVE NO LEGAL LIMITATIONS? Hypothetically, If a psychiatrist was also talented in Neurosurgery and followed the standard of care of a Neurosurgeon he would LEGALLY be within his rights to… Read more »

Reality......It's Traumatic

E-what we have is yet another american example of hamster wheeling into oblivion. It doesn’t matter the “phenotype” of the person. The “value” system was monetary acquisition and getting more, and more. It was a business opportunity, a business “culture.” Everything was abt getting money, why would us footology be any different? There was an increasing uneasiness with this reality-we see this in many institutions and unless it’s smiles and happy talk, you will not be invited back to the party. State reality and truths, and the facial expressions will be akin to someone smelling stale elevator flatulence or vitriol,… Read more »

Why would any podiatrist be overjoyed with too many patients in the waiting room? Maybe clear the waiting room out and see one patient in the room with a maximum of 10 or 20 patients a day. What’s more important, saving lives from Covid 18 ordering more than 1 patient every 30 to 45 minutes? If it’s not painful, why not hold off on treating routine problems? After all after restaurants open and there are people without masks, my guess is there might be a surge in Covid 19. Why be in a hurry to open an office for routine… Read more »
