Notice how young these 'Doctors' are: 26 and 27 years old, and they've been practicing for several years. In many instances the medical training that doctors from the middle-east and south asia undergo is nowhere near as rigorous as the training at a U.S. or Western European medical school. The medical degree is often a 4 or 5 year undergraduate degree, whereas in the U.S., students have to do a 4 year degree in science before they're even eligible to start medical school. It's not obvious to me that people with undergraduate medical degrees from non-US institutions should even be eligible to take the medical board exams to obtain a medical license, without significant additional training here in the U.S.
I was thinking the same thing about the Dr;s ages.. and with more and more foreign dr’s being in the hospitals and clinics here in the US it makes me wonder.... I went to one the social security provdided for me some years back and I could hardly understand him..That is the first thing I ask any more if I am referred to another Dr. by my primary care Dr. is if they speak english as their first language. I figure that way I will get an American born dr perhaps..

I was thinking the same thing: there is no such thing as a “brilliant” 26-year-old neurologist, unless he’s Doogie Howser. “Brilliant” neurologists with good training should still be in their residencies at 26.
