Kimkins Dr. Mark Is Paid Staff


From TippyToes aka Jeannie Baitinger, Kimkins PR director:

Re:Kimmer question 2 Hours, 14 Minutes ago

OK. Dr. Mark has listed his credentuals in the health and wellness threads. He has been brought in as a staff member to help answer questions in his field for members. We feel his presence is quite valuable to the website and we are thrilled to have him here. However, Dr. Mark should not be used as a substitute for your own Physician.

I do not know details of the Kimkins.com transaction. As far as the new owners they have chosen not to announce themselves as of yet. We have been told the site would operate as normal and there are no indications we will close. Nothing more, nothing less.

The only changes being made to the site are positive additions (such as Dr. Mark and the fitness guru) so there is really nothing more to announce at this time.

This member and another who agreed with this member about needing more info were told they have new PMs. Neither heard from since.

The only field that "Dr." Mark is qualified to answer questions in, is acupuncture. To the best of our knowledge, none of the Kimkins plans require acupuncture services.

Jeannie Baitinger (Tippy Toes) sez: "This member and another who agreed with this member about needing more info were told they have new PMs. Neither heard from since."

Is this a new euphamism for "BANNED"?

Tippy - go write "credentials" 100 times please. And next time you feel the need to give more ridiculous updates and advice, I suggest writing your post in a program that has an automatic spell check first and then paste it over. Seriously honey, you only make yourself sound more absurd by not promoting with at least a degree of professionalism such as good spelling.

The doctor may be seriously reconsidering his involvement. He denied being on staff, and then HE asked a question - because there were so many people already offering good advice, ARE THEY SURE THEY EVEN NEEDED HIM? He was warned, but likely never expected the intense scrutiny he has received. Now maybe he's withdrawing.
