A 56-year-old Gambrills podiatrist was sentenced to more than four years in prison Wednesday for fraudulently billing Medicare $1.1 million over three years, according to the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office. The scheme marked the second time Larry Bernhard had defrauded the federal agency, according to court records. In 2007, he signed a settlement agreement with the government admitting he'd billed for services he didn't provide between 2002 and 2004, and promising to abstain from using federal health care programs for three years.

When U.S. Rep. James Moran Jr., a Virginia Democrat, announced in January that he would not seek re-election to Congress, I (along with every other sensible Democrat) breathed a sigh of relief. Only a podiatrist or a contortionist could admire Mr. Moran. A podiatrist because Mr. Moran's feet must be perpetually clean and a contortionist because the cleansing is the result of the congressman routinely inserting his feet into his mouth. I should have known that Mr. Moran could not simply and gracefully depart the public limelight without saying something so insensitive it would serve to bolster his reputation as one of the most embarrassing members of Congress over the last two decades.

Most Marylanders are not aware of the shortage of one type medical specialists that will affect health care availability for decades: Podiatrists. Podiatry is the medical specialty that deals with foot and ankle injuries and disease. Don't laugh. This is serious business. With the aging of our population and the explosion in diabetes, we're likely to see more diabetic foot conditions. Left untreated or undertreated, this disease can progress to chronic infections and lower limb amputations, resulting in disabling and life-changing consequences.

He's about to leave his patient's home (yes, some doctors still make house calls), but first Dr. Lloyd T. Bowser Jr. wants to stop and contemplate his foot. Not his own foot, of course. A plastic model that the Baltimore podiatrist takes with him to help answer patients' questions and explain his diagnoses. "The foot," he announces, "really is a biomechanical wonder." Now he's ready to go, on his way out the door, but there's another pause. There is something he wants to know. "Are those greens you got cooking?"

ANYONE WHO breathes our substandard air, anyone who enjoys intimate speaking terms with a hairstylist, manicurist, snowball purveyor, tattoo artist or podiatrist - basically, any adult with a pulse and an ear for gossip--- heard (and probably repeated) the stories about Martin O'Malley that arrived here like a sulfuric cloud months ago. From the start, it smelled like Baltimore's biggest urban legend, the one about Martin O'Malley's personal life, yet it would not go away. And the mayor's enemies probably liked it that way. Putting an end to such damaging rumors - in this age of mean-stream radio and the chatty free-for-all that is the Internet - is a daunting challenge for anyone who chooses a public life.

I am a podiatrist, and I would like to comment on toenail fungus and treatment. When you write "Home remedies don't always work," you imply that sometimes they do work. This is untrue. Home remedies rarely work. There are real, doctor-prescribed, FDA-approved, clinically tested medications to treat toenail fungus. These include topical Penlac or oral Lamisil or Sporanox. I have successfully treated hundreds of patients with these drugs. The unproven treatments you mentioned are little more than urban legends.

From operating on Dwight D. Eisenhower's in-grown toenail to pirating in the Inner Harbor, Dr. John Charlton, 69, has led a uniformed, if not uniform, life. He was a young podiatrist in the Army when called upon to examine President Eisenhower, and eventually Charlton and his wife Gloria became good buddies with Mamie, Ike's wife. After the Army, Charlton donned clown's togs as a potentate in the Shriners. And now, he is Captain Hook, tour guide aboard the Peter Pan Pirate Ship Baltimore, an amphibious vehicle that takes tourists on Baltimore streets and in the harbor as part of a historic tour program run by the Living Classrooms Foundation.
