The Barefoot Professor (Mark I) on Podiatrists

"My Scathing Analysis of Foot Experts Misinforming the Public":

"...Can you imagine a dentist who sincerely believes that candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner is the best thing you can do for your teeth? If the dentist was deceiving his patients merely to increase his own profits, I would merely despise him. If he were so ignorant of dental hygiene as to sincerely believe his prescription is best, then…. well, I would be truly afraid to be his patient. So is our situation, however, with many of today’s podiatrists. Crazy...."

But par for the course, unfortunately.

A friend mentioned she had an issue while running, and asked if she should see a podiatrist.  "Oh, God no", was my response.  I sent her here instead.
