    Thanks for the ignorant slam on podiatry and the idiotic reply to Eastern Medicine.

    "Psuedo Professional"? Are you kidding me? I've done far more in medicine than you have as a student and your obvious lack of understanding of podiatry leaves you no room to comment.

    Are you telling me that you take the time to look everything up in a book before you ask someone? Did you ask any questions at all before matriculating at COMP. I guess not. You must have kept your big mouth shut for fear that they'd discover you.

    As far as I can tell, this is a forum for asking questions and, hopefully, getting some helpful advice. Next time you want to slander another profession that you no nothing about, I suggest you look it up first.

    Truth is a biatch, huh? Let's not try to fool ourselves here, you are one step below a chiropractor. Why do you want to become a medical doctor if being a podiatrist is so great? It is perfectly okay for you to aspire to be a real doctor. And please don't tell me you done far more in medicine than I have. What medicine have you done exactly? Are you even allowed to prescribe medicine? I hardly call prescribing some Ben-gay, medicine. Let me ask my friends in medical school on what they think of their fellow "medical" doctor, the podiatrist. Yes, I always look things up before I ask questions. You are absolutely right though, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people. <img src="graemlins/clappy.gif" border="0" alt="[Clappy]" />

    Wow! You have some serious issues, don't you Cream Puff?

    I guess I'll waste about 5 more minutes on you just to assist you in connecting 2 or 3 of the functioning synapses that you may or may not have left.

    Yeah. I do want to be a complete physician and that's why I'm applying to both allopathic and osteopathic medical schools. I'd rather be an MD or DO to expand the scope of my practice and avoid numbskulls like you in the future that know nothing about podiatry.

    And, quite obviously, you do absolutely no research before you choose to lash out at people who have infinitely more knowledge about a topic than your evidently puny and prejudiced mind can handle.

    "One step below a chiropractor" demonstrates both your amazing lack of intelligence and unique ability to slam two professions at once. Your friends must idolize you.

    For your edification, podiatrists have the same D.E.A license as an MD and DO, are on staff at hospitals exactly like MD's and DO's, do complicated surgeries in these same hospitals where MD's and DO's do there's , and are recognized by the United States Government as physicians and surgeons. Does that help you out or do you need some more hand holding? Let me dumb it down for you: Podiatrists are legally and professionally qualified to prescribe all medicines, do all surgeries below the knee and admit patients into hospitals. Gee! I guess that means that I can feel free to give my patients Ben Gay the next time I see them! Thanks for the sage medical advice!

    I've performed multiple lower extremity surgeries, admitted many patients into hospitals, done BK amputations, done foot and ankle reconstructive surgery, done skin grafts, done bone grafts, etc., etc., etc. I did internal medicine rotations in my residency, emergency medicine, orthopedic trauma and infection, vascular surgery, plastic surgery, dermatology and pediatrics. Man! I guess now I can be a dental assistant according to your vastly superior knowledge of what it takes to be a doctor.

    I'm not happy with podiatry because I agree that it doesn't afford the EXACT SAME education and residency training that MD and DO schools can provide. But, I still have respect for the profession and will always defend it against ignorant slobs such as yourself.

    Ever heard the saying that you shouldn't throw rocks when your house is made of glass preludexl?
    There are many people as bigotted as you who feel the same way about your coveted DO degree.

    Excellent retort, Purifyer. I meant to bring that up, too!

    This ignoramous is so immersed in his/her own fascist thinking, that I'm afraid nobody would be able to extricate him/her without doing even more damage to their brain.

    preludexl...

    you embarassing yourself buddy.

    If indeed you are an aspiring physician, some Attending is gonna have a field day with you down the line with that attitude. Believe it. I think you'll need a proctologist after he or she is done, if you know what I mean. Proctologists are real doctors too, fyi.

    Well said folks. Preludexl, you are a true idiot. My company conducts clinical research and we work with many doctors (MD, DO and DPM). I can tell you from a non-clinical viewpoint, physicians like you (if indeed you are a physician yet) inevitably alienate themselves with remarks like yours. No matter what you think of podiatry, you should understand that your bigotted opinions will not be tolerated in the medical community. I see it everyday where physicians cut their own throats by their words and actions...especially about other health care professionals.

    DrMoon, way to respond. Podiatrists ARE physicians...obviously physicians of the foot and ankle and rarely claim to be anything else. I would love to see just how much Preludexl knows about the anatomy of the foot.

    Preludelx, here's a question. Since you seem to be the all-knowing physician, can you describe the McBride procedure? Didn't think so.
