Kind of like having a pet rattlesnake, isn't it?
I have had Muslim co-workers with whom I have been friendly..but who really knows?
I have Arab friends, but they are Christian. It's not nationality or regional, or looks..it's a Muslim Thing.
I was rather dumbfound the first time a you doctor said this but by the fourth or fifth time it became common place.
My friends and I have a personal joke about some of the Doctors coming to America from terrorists countries performing operations and actually doing things to endanger the patients life.
In one Texas town as I write there is an open war between American and Foreign doctors over the foreign doctors stealing patients.
It works this way.
The American doctor sends a long time patient to say an Indian Internist doctor for a certain problem and expects the Indian doctor Internist to write a diagnosis and send the patient back.
However, what is happening is that the Indian doctor sends the patient to another Indian doctor and the patient never comes back to the American doctor.
This has created a very big problem in some towns that i know of.
Indians are known for becoming directors of residency programs in hospitals and then brining in a dispassionate amount of Indians to other countries who apply.
The problem is that many Indians refuse to learn Spanish so that they can communicate with a majority of their kalifornia patients.
Especially in Kalifornia.
Arnold probably does not know about this because no one in government seems to give a damn whether or not doctors can communicate with their patients.
Intern residents from some countries are so very arrogant about having to learn English much less Spanish.
Flame away all you damn political correct kiss ass medical types who disagree.
