More crooked chiropractors

July 23rd, 2009 · 109 comments

My favorite part of this landlord-chiropractor dispute in Brooklyn is the (professionally printed?) “tenant snuck out over the weekend” sign. How long has this landlord had that one in reserve?

TENANT SNUCK OUT OVER WEEKEND

Meanwhile, Dan in Dallas received this direct-mail don’t from a doc he’s dubbed “Dmitri the chiropractor.”

    Neighbrohod?

    The conservative chiropractic practitioner version of hanging out in the hood?

    Instead of elaborate handshakes, they brush up on their neck, back and spinal stress relief techniques.

    Hey, bro! [Big bear hug - crack!] How’re things cracking?

    Fine, fine…

    The more joints you can get to pop, the more cred you’ve got.

      All chiropractors are magic. But their magic only lasts a short time, so you have to keep going back over, and over, and over again.
      Just when your insurance benefits for those lumbar treatments run out, they make your pain magically migrate to your thoracic spine and presto!, you’re good for another 30 visits worth of benefits.

      Chiropractor’s are a wierd lot for sure. I once worked for 3 days at an office and the “holistic wierdness/massage therapy” was too much. The guy made a questionnaire at the group interview we all had to take and share answers. It felt like therapy or something. That should have been my first clue. After I quit I was stalked by phone for a few days “Was it something I did or said?” Uh yeah, I want to work for a real doctor.

      When I worked with a chiropractor, he had a “very serious talk” with me for carrying one-two (sometimes three) textbooks in my messenger bag. He said it put too much weight on my shoulder. I asked him “what about a regular back pack?”
      “But then the weight would be on both shoulders.”
      “Well, then, what do you expect I do? Carry them in a box?” I guess that was a little too sarcastic for him because he just walked away and said “I can’t deal with your energy right now, Fluffy!”

      Whatever, I quit and he replaced me with some girl who wore orthopedic shoes.

      …and by “quit,” I mean “fired.”

      Fluffy could he have been jealous of you for actually trying to further yourself rather than trying to say …… become a chiropractor. Lol

      Alarming that the “doctor” would find it disturbing for you to carry textbooks. Can you picture him as a college student showing up to class unprepared or bookless because he didn’t want to strain his vertabrae?

    Say, who are the people in your neighbrohod?
    The people that you meet each day

    The chiropractor is always there
    To take care of wear and tear
    With his hammer, nails, and glue
    He’ll fix your spine as good as new

    And a real estate agent is a person in your neighbrohod

    He’ll take care of all your teeth
    The top ones and the ones beneath
    So if your rent is overdue
    He’ll fix it quick, and that’s the truth

    Well, they’re the people that you meet
    When you’re walking down the street
    They’re the people that you meet each day
    The ones that make you pay
    in one way
    or another way
    They’re the people that you meet each day
    (until you run away).

    A chiropractor on the north side of Columbus actually went door to door a few years ago to introduce himself and his practice. He offered a free spinal evaluation and coupons for treatments. The guy wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. I can tell by the way you’re holding your shoulders, you need a T-4 to T-7 adjustment.

    I finally got him to leave by telling him that I was a fruad investigator for the BWC. That sent him scurrying back to his lair.

      My favorites are the chiropractors who set up shop in the malls. I sat on a bench near one those booths and in the 15-20 minutes I was there the two “medical professionals” on duty told every person walking past that they needed spinal adjustment. They were actually following people who tried sneak past them and insisting on taking measurements. I got a good laugh from all the people who offered to let them measure a certain finger for their troubles.

    After not buying into the “Come three times a week for the rest of your life if you want to stay HEALTHY” mindset, I had a chiropractor call me DAILY to basically threaten me.

    “You’re making the cause for your whole family to be sick! Is that what you WANT?”

    When I threatened legal action, he stopped. But I still reported him to the state board of chiropractors.

    Why is it that both these Brooklyn chiropractors have Germanic names – Schwager (German for brother-in-law) and Scherer (German for shearer)?
    Is that ‘neighbrohood’ known as Little Berlin?

      You are conflating the two notes, but I’ll overlook that to note that the neighborhood of Dr. Scherer is Dyker Heights. People of German ancestry make up a large part of America’s population, as well as the population of Brooklyn, but we are less apt to live in ethnic enclaves here than some other groups in the city are. I’d say it was a coincidence.

      It’s a little known fact that chiropracty first became commonplace in Germany in the middle of the last century.

      All that goose-stepping is murder on the spine.

    The chiropractor tenant leaves without paying rent because the shitty landlord doesn’t get anything in the building fixed. Apparently two wrongs make passive aggressive signs!

    Because there’s no better way to prove that your line of work is a legitimate medical field than to model your business practices after those of the direct-response marketing industry.

      The guy was probably asking for it. No chiropractor can resist when a guy shaped like a question mark walks straight past his office every day.

    It seems he is sending out the letters one-at-a-time? Then, if one person does not respond to his offer he sends it to the next person, their neighbor? What a terrible way to market,must take him all year to get through just one neighborhood. If it were me I would send out at least 10-15 letters at a time!

    Yeah, better to live by a “real doctor”‘s philosophy of a pill, puncture, potion or powder 3 times a week, or even DAILY to treat “symptoms” than to find out what’s causing the problem and treat that. Kinda like the swine flu shot this girl got:
    http://h1n1workshops.org/?p=394

    Some day you will all wake up. Until then, enjoy your foolishness. Maybe if (dare I say this) READ the information in MEDICAL journals showing effectiveness of spinal manipulation and neurological and biomechanical injuries, you’d easily come and walk “the dark side” – heck the military is even hiring doctors of chiropractic.
    But, alas, I’m sure not ONE of you will read the education needed to become a DC. Too bad.
    I will say this, EACH profession has their 10% IDIOTS. It’s unfortunate that these kids right out of college put their faith into Practice Marketing Guru’s so blindly.
    It is unfortunate that they don’t grossly overcharge their patients and hire an advertising media group for TV and Radio Ads like your MD’s do.
    But, again, someday WE will wake up, OVERCHARGE our patients, put them in a room for 2-3 hours, give them shots (after signing a disclaimer from harmful effects) and rely on the commercials done by good looking actors (so they don’t stick out their own necks) promoting their drugs.
    So have fun, make fun of DC’s, show your ignorance and for GOD’S SAKE don’t educate yourself with the facts!
