PODIATRISTS IN THE NEWS
Most DFUs are Preventable: IN Podiatrist 
 
“The leading cause of hospitalization among people with diabetes – regardless of ethnicity – is foot ulcers and infections, but most of those problems are largely preventable,” said Brandon Gumbiner, DPM, a podiatrist at Indiana Podiatry Group and an APMA member. “It’s important for those with the disease to ‘knock their socks off’ and receive regular foot exams by today’s podiatrists.”
 
Dr. Brandon Gumbiner
 
“Although ulcers can occur anywhere on the foot or ankle, they are typically found on pressure points on the foot, like the ball of the foot or bottom of the big toe,” Dr. Gumbiner said. “If you discover an ulcer or have any symptoms, see a podiatrist immediately. In many cases, the foot can be saved with early treatment.”

PRACTICE MANAGEMENT TIP OF THE DAY
Medical School Debt: Best Practices When Paying it Off - Part 6
 
Taking on medical school debt can be a smart investment to increase your future earning potential. However, you still need to pay off that debt in a smart way to make sure that it doesn't cost you any more than it needs to.
 
6. Pay Off Higher Interest Student Loans First
 
There is no benefit to paying off smaller student loans first, and most of the time you'll only have one monthly payment even with multiple loans. Pay off the highest interest rate loans first to pay less in interest over time.
 
When you're doing this, watch how your payments are applied. If you set a monthly automatic payment higher than the minimum, it may be divided between all of your loans. The same thing applies if you make an extra payment without specifying the loan it should go towards. If you pay online, there should be an option to select the specific loan you want to make a payment on.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NON-CLINICAL) - PART 1
From: Lawrence Rubin, DPM
 
I agree with Dr. Allen Jacobs who objects to advertising and CME programs suggesting a product or service is a "standard of care" without backing up that claim with statistical or other valid evidence. The claim implies that those podiatrists not using or prescribing the product or service for a particular condition are providing substandard care. Obviously, this advertising could have serious legal repercussions.
 
Lawrence Rubin, DPM, Las Vegas, NV

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NON-CLINICAL) - PART 1B
From: Lawrence Rubin, DPM
 
Once again, Dr. Jacobs hits the nail on the head. No corporate entity, especially with special interest, or CME seminar should dictate what is the “Standard of Care." This would be an extremely dangerous precedent leading not only to easy misinterpretation, but misinformation. Remember, we are dealing with a "Forensic" definition that can carry a lot of consequence.

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NEWS STORIES)
From: W. David Herbert, DPM, JD
 
Because I have been licensed as a podiatrist in Wyoming since 1976, the outside interest piece regarding Dr. Jones and the college national rodeo events caught my eye. In Cody, Wyoming from June first and until the last day of August, it is possible to watch a rodeo every night. This rodeo includes all events you will find in any rodeo. Not only is Cody, Wyoming a well-known stop on the way to Yellowstone National Park, it is also the "rodeo capitol of the world".

RESPONSES/COMMENTS (CODINGLINE CORNER)
From: Ivar E. Roth DPM, MPH
 
My perspective on insurance is as follows. Insurance is a gift to the doctors. If you take the gift, you take what they give you. Because of the fact that the gift is available to all (meaning you get listed by the insurance provider and patients come to you without effort), it is a gift. If you do not want the gift, then you have to go out and distinguish yourself and not take the insurance and the gift. Not taking gifts is a hard path at first, but very rewarding once you have figured it out. Therefore, we all have a choice; it is up to you to determine which path to take.
