Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

“Another STUPID Doctor and Another License Soon to be Gone”

I am pissed!!!! Really, really, really PISSED!!!!! I have just read another narrative where a doctor has been treating a patient with a cord compression and there has been no neurosurgical consultation.


I do not make the clinical calls for you. That is your judgment, but…I do get the calls when your licenses hang in the balance because you hurt someone and my guidance and sympathy is sought on how to get you out of trouble after hurting someone. Worse, the patient needs surgery and his/her life have been turned upside down because you didn’t bother to know any better when you should have.


You now formally know better and if you want to continue working with me, you had best be the best at this stuff. You have to know how to understand MRI’s, when to adjust and when not to adjust. When to refer to a specialist and when you can treat aggressively. If there is any doubt, take the MRI course, take the PI Bootcamp or simply call me. The WORST THING YOU CAN DO IS TO TREAT WITHOUT KNOWING.


If you do not know, do not touch. That is non-negotiable. I repeat, do not touch anyone if you do not have a 100% definitive diagnosis. Professional school gives you the basics to learn…Go learn. If you do not have the time or do not have the desire, go get a job at Walmart or the Golden Arches; they need extra help and you will not have the opportunity to hurt anyone. (Sarcasm intended at the highest level!) Keep guessing and I will bet the house your license will be jeopardized soon enough.
