Would Medicare for All cut Podiatrists’ reimbursement?

Would Medicare for All cut Podiatrists’ reimbursement?

This article about Bernie Sanders’ plan seems to indicate that Medicare for All could result in cuts of upwards of 40% of doctor’s pays (and that is not including that Podiatrists would probably get the worst of it)

The very best way to LIE is to hide the lie among half truths. Podiatry takes a little real medicine and mixes in some quackery and makes it seem like a legitimate medical profession. Take PODIATRIST KORNFELD. He talks about CBD oil and says giving it SYSTEMICALLY IS THE BEST WAY. KORNY practices in NEW YORK. Treating systemically in NY is illegal especially if its a NON LOCAL CONDITION. PODIATRISTS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO TREAT LOCAL CONDITIONS! Podiatrists are forbidden with a dp wtf certificate to treat diseases EXCEPT FOR THEIR LOCAL MANIFESTATIONS, THEN THEY MUST REFER THE PATIENT TO… Read more »

Dear Old dirt: Got a good laugh. I agree with you but wanted to be more gentle. As for the boomer part, that’s irrelevant as you will eventually grow to see (if your lucky to live as long as I have). It’s the fiber and tenacity of the person that counts. I think of a local story where a 20 -30 y.o. knocked on the door of a couple in their late 70’s and tried to rob them. The geezer (who through lots of life experience) reached for the shotgun HE PLANTED AND PLANNED FROM that EXPERIENCE and gave the… Read more »

Like pigs at a trough, greedy boomers like the midget propagandist nerd need to go. You are very correct about that shrimp copying others work (+massaging things to appear rosy) and getting rich not doing footology. Those ill-earned riches are disgusting Bro

It would be terrific to have a thread titled: CROOKED PODS AND THEIR PLOYS—Listing the dirtiest dealings of pods past and present who’ve gone beyond criminality in selling unnecessary surgery, bogus bonanzas, and pod-scams. For instance: I knew a pod once who’d do tenotomies on every toe once a week, and then buzz off spurs, and then have patients come back weekly for injections and therapies. Oh, they’re still out there. Cut nails, cut tendons (maybe) but bill for it) so they say—maybe they nicked a tendon. How many pods in practice are collecting disability and doing p work along… Read more »

As the Rolling Stones song: Sympathy for the Podiatrist would HOO HOO. By the way if you know the number HOO HOO is in the song you get immediate acceptance to P school, a Maserati does 185 and live long enough to use a walker to the Ritter and the Ritter is dry, this’ll be the day you PO-DIE—Will be selling POD-DYE clothing for the pods who’ve oversized their leisure suits. MEDICARE will, without a doubt —I guess—cut podiatry off like a cheap circumcision to use dickskin for ulcer care…they have pod scammers sneak in and swipe foreskins to repackage… Read more »

Ah, Pod Post appears to be up and running. Sorry Barry, but you had your 2 decades of unbridled propaganda. How’s the bank account? And you don’t have to touch feet! Is it true that you have shoes on display in your house?

Funny shoes and news. It’s been what, 30yrs+ of his horseshit? Silly shoe pics, pics of lifers, pics of fraud, pics of badly aging frauds, pics of restless self promoters. First Class Airfare, 500k+ salaries, deluxe hotels, food compted/expensed, by NOT doing feet. Who the bleep would do feet? Julius V. Fartwell.

Always entertaining and engrossing Eddy. Well, the ‘AESTHETIC FOOT SOCIETY” (doesn’t that sound perverted?) is dealt a blow by an MD, PhD who warns NON DERMATOLOGISTS AND NON PHYSICIANS (that would be podiatrists on both counts) not to take injecting fillers lightly. He WARNS of complications and says PROPER TRAINING regarding the RECOGNITION & MANAGEMENT! of COMPLICATIONS is necessary. Podiatrists manage complications by referring their f ups to MD doctors or calling 911. Young Kim ,MD, PhD (can’t beat that academic hand with a wtf! like 4 Aces vs a mixed # hand) says AUTOIMUNE (tx much of that with… Read more »

The key to podiatry was to remove one’s brain. Dead from the neck up like Harry.

And smile alot. Vacantly, or sardonically like the bald fake md clown. Remember, tell folks what they want to hear, smile, and tell folks what they want to hear. never speak the truth, and smile alot, buy some thick rimmed black glasses to appear smart and appeal to the dumb as stale dog shit DP WTFS. And remember, wear thick socks in the winter time, and don’t step on hot tar in the summer time–Harry’s silly news.

There appears to be a loss of THE DYNAMIC that was here at the Pod Post. Either Seth is ill or lifers have infiltrated. I hope neither is true. Podiatry REALLY BENEFITS FROM OPPOSITION TO THE SELFISH PROPAGANDISTS LIKE BARRY BLOCK AND HIS PM NEWS AND ALAN SHERMAN OF “PRESENTS” WHO BAN SPEECH BECAUSE THEY ARE UNABLE TO COMPETE IN THE ARENA OF IDEAS. I’m amazed at the lack of backbone in this “profession” and the willingness to be followers controlled by secret cults embedded in the APMA, THE FOOT SCHOOLS, BOARDS, AND SHADOWY GROUPS OF NARCISSISTIC LIFERS. Podiatry has… Read more »

“I’m amazed at the lack of backbone in this “profession”. What is there to be “amazed” at? Why are you still surprised? Is that cognitive dissonance, or delusions, or denials, or buyers remorse and can’t handle reality? Podiatrists are moronic pussies. They live for money and status. Dinero accumulation–nothing more. There will be no rising up, fighting the man, resist crap–they wanna a paycheck and drink their shitty lives away with their impish and soy boy children. Simply that. They have huge debts thanks to massive tuitions, huge crappy health “care” bills, mountains of paperwork, job insecurity, corporate shit holes,… Read more »

When the pubes go gray what do say? There are thousands of ways to die, and some day we all will—It’d be a gas to hear the last words of a dying pod: “I love podiatry,” and playing at every seminar…suckers would line up like folks at a carnival to see the two headed bearded lady and shave their stuffed animals. In a sense podiatrists are stuffed animals – stuffed with propaganda, nonsense, and a bit of the apple from the poison tree to get taste of … HEY YOUNG DOPES, if you do this podiatry shit you will die… Read more »

Well all the hoopla and proclamations for the esteemed “medical” board have failed. Greater than 60% of respondents don’t feel a more “intensive” (intensive when you can’t do anything systemic?!) is a waste of time. Agreed. The Medical Board is just a Chiropody Podiatry “board”. Essentially a useless certificate to practice general podiatry. NO SYSTEMIC DISEASES ALLOWED so why waste time? So now that we know there’s little interest or NEED for a Medical board why not just dissolve it? It means nothing to anyone but wtf’s who couldn’t pass the Surgical Board and that makes half of the wtf’s.… Read more »

It is a useless certificate. It’s also needed by those who want to remain par on the insurance panels.

Elmer Dubovitch was an orthopedic surgeon in Russia, but after learning about American podiatry shuffled off to the Big Apple to get rollin’—He saw, heard tales, and read the literature of quick ticket to the American Medicare dream. Elmer was given advanced standing at a pod school in flyover state USA, and needed only ONE year to get his triad. “Why bothersky with this board schmertification, a foot doctor is a foot doctor. Would eat feet with my Borscht every day, chase it with wodka, and go to town.” He’s studied American TV shows and believed wholly that Saturday Night… Read more »

Ah Podiatry! You’ve got to be really in it awhile to fathom it. The NEW YORK STATE PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION is “working hard” to ensure their FUTURE PAYCHECKS, BENEFITS, FREE FLIGHTS, DINNERS, DRINKS & companionship(?). They’re at the New York Franchise inculcating, proselytizing, and propagandizing FIRST year foot technicians as to the NEED TO JOIN THE APMA (and of course pay dues!) The podiatric politicians NEED THE MONEY to buy their HAWAIIAN HOMES and fly top class without touching feet themselves. Why doesn’t a smart student (I guess if they were really smart they would have been accepted into a… Read more »

Notice that this SOCIALISTIC plan is favored by DEMOCRATS. The liberal dream of “making everyone equal”, even if it means TAKING AWAY FROM OTHERS, is the ANTITHESIS OF FREEDOM. While “SOUNDING GOOD, it deflates the spirt by punishing accomplishment. It rewards the low motivated and lazy. Our country provides a SAFTEY NET for the truly indigent to keep them safe WHILE THEY SHOULD BE ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN PURSING EMPLOYMENT. The travails of poverty should be strong MOTIVATION to STUDY AND MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF! Coddling, along with racial EXCUSES, have produced a DEPENDENT CLASS that votes for leaders who will… Read more »
