1 in 3 US physicians is foreign born

This is very troubling to me.  Both as a nurse and an American.

This article takes the opinion that if immigration was limited, we wouldn't have the health care professionals we need.  I don't think it is the case with physicians.  I don't think that Americans no longer aspire to be physicians, pharmacists, etc.  Nursing may a bit more complex.  It is a hard educational track compared to others.  It is not for everyone, and the job is harder than other professions.  It should pay more and nothing can much be done about its 24/7 nature.  But it's a whole other issue.

No doubt we've all noticed this trend.  It causes cultural and other issues.  It troubles me.

I think this runs deeper than that. I wouldn't give my healthcare to someone who immigrated, might as well leave the country to find a doctor. The U.S.A. has dove far in many respects.

It depends on a couple of factors:

1) Where did the doctor go to medical school?

2) Is the doctor completely proficient in English?

3) What is the ethnic/cultural/religious background of the doctor?

Now, I agree that #3 sounds bigoted, but as a female I do not want to entrust my life to any doctor who believes females are inferior beings that don't deserve medical attention equal to males.

In other words, I would not choose a Muslim doctor. Now in my defense, my dog's Vet was educated in Poland, came to the US legally and is now a US citizen. My dentist is an Egyptian Coptic Christian who fled persecution years ago, immigrated legally and is also now a US citizen.

This is nothing new. I can only speak for NJ but open a phone book or go on line and search for a specialist/internist and 3/4 of the names certainly are not Smith or Jones.

My "American" doctors are retiring.

My family doctor retired and his practice is now run by an Indian doctor. She speaks fluent English so no communication problems. She seems overwhelmed by all the day to day details needed by government regulations.

My wife's eye surgeon is an Indian and seems very good. He speaks like he has been here for ever and is by far the best at communicating details of my wife's eye problems.

The other specialist eye surgeon removed my wife's cataracts and also is excellent at communication and performing his specialty.

Our other doctors are excellent and American but I don't know how they can survive all the government B-S. My gastro guy was a staunch conservative who told me he would not do Obama care but he died.

I had a bad run of finding a good Cardiologist.  Everyone I got was foreign born and did not speak understandable (to me) English.  My fourth try was an American doctor.  When I called his office to move my appointment sooner due to chest pains, they just told me to go to the Emergency Room if I had a problem.  I have never seen that doctor again.  My new doctor is the one who treated me for the
Heart Attack I had a week after calling the old doctor.  Sad  At least I have a good one now.   Wink

I've had the same doctor for 17 years now.  He comes from an excellent medical school and (wonder of wonders) LISTENS to my complaints when I try to explain them.  (Total Shock!)

When I had heart problems, he sent me to a woman cardiologist who ran me through so many tests, I thought I was a permanent member of her family!  Eventually cleared everything up.

My doctor's wife is also a doctor (from the same college as my doc) and they work in the same building.  She's so work-loaded, my wife can't get her as her doctor---yet. 

And, what do they ALL have in common? 
They're skiers who ski in the Swiss Alps on their vacations and they're all joggers, who jog together!

Oh, and they're ALL black!  Wink Grin Grin

My only problem with a foreign born Doctor is----is he a US Citizen?  I had the best foreign Doc ever from India, but he was a US Citizen.  Just saying.

Americans don't want to be doctors anymore?

Some have been AA'd out of schools.

I have heard that we do not have enough medical schools. The AMA opposes more med schools to limit the supply of doctors thus keeping their income higher. Any truth to this one?
