"And while I am sure the (medical) association does not share Dr. Edelberg’s view on chiropractic care and training,...."

No they don't because the actual clinical training that chiropractors receive is unbelievably pathetic.

Does Dr. Edelberg have any idea what the actual training is? Does he have any idea that "chiropractic" continues to promote unfounded and bizarre "treatments" such as the most used chiropractic treatment, the "activator".

Dr. Edelberg should not confuse generic spinal manipulation with "chiropractic" and all the ubiquitous quackery that continues to exist to this day.

Chiropractors have NO business thinking that they are qualified to be "primary care" physicians.

While we're at it, a real Medical Doctor (not wisdom since she isn't one) said this about wisdom.
"The poster wisdom does not represent us. He's an embarrassment to the medical community. I seriously doubt he's an MD. That comment he made about a woman in a diabetic coma sounds like he lifted it out of a the National Enquirer. After reading a few of his posts I can see he's just an angry flake with a warped perspective of chiropractic."

Well said.

What more proof do you need wisdom is a fraud?

It seems like you can always get better discounts and deals if you have your whole family with a doctor. I was thinking about signing up with family doctor. I hope that everything works well with the local doctor. http://www.selahmedical.com/family-medicine-p...

The poster wisdom ("the pimp") has no idea what he's talking about. He's not an MD. He also shuttered his chiropractic practice shortly after insurance companies became difficult to bilk after what the pimp calls "the mercedes 80's."
Furthermore, the pimp said he was a chiropractor for 20 years. The pimp also said during his time in practice he never believed in anything he did--stating that he practiced 'quack techniques' but still didn't mind billing insurance companies. If that isn't a fraud, I don't know what is. But hey, I guess that's what pimps do. I guess.

ha ha ha Please tell us about the "extensive" adult and pediatric internal medicine training you think you had mr. chiropractor. This should be very entertaining.

You are just another ignorant chiropractor. And calling someone a "pimp" doesn't change the fact that your "clinical" training was absolutely pathetic.

As a chiropractor I already know the answer but I am interested on "chicago's" answer.

Here's the question, " Please tell us about the "extensive" adult and pediatric internal medicine training you think you had mr. chiropractor.

Dr. Callahan, the answer is simple. Chiropractic training in "internal medicine" is practically non-existent.

You and I both know it.

wisdom 'the pimp' said this about "cal," "you and I both know it!" MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH WHOAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! They're the exact same PIMP!
Notice cal's city differs by a few miles--but only on the weekends--when the pimp of the first part (wisdom) is on 'visitation.' That's what happens when you go bankrupt--you end of divorced and the family breaks up. But the pimp blames his 'breakup' on chiropractic--that's the big difference. I wonder if failed lawyers blame their divorces on the law. Hmmmmm, I wonder.
If I were 'the pimp" I would find a good lawyer and sue his chiropractic school for causing his divorce. Good pairing--one pimp with another.

"I would find a good lawyer and sue his chiropractic school"

Two points; 1. A lawsuit is in progress. I am not involved.(As a chiropractor, you should know about the lawsuit. Then again, you don't impress as a well read person. Seeing as how you think that clicking people's spines with the magic activator is somehow "beneficial" for specific conditions,)

And 2. After more than 100,000 insurance company generously reimbursed spinal manipulations, I and the other mercedes 80's chiropractors are hardly bankrupt. And now that I practice critical care medicine life is wonderful.

Stop making a fool out of yourself mr. chiropractor.
