I'm so sorry you had to go through that. As a woman who works in the medical field (medical transcription) I also hear first hand how much many doctors care about their patients. If the general public knew everything and knew the extent of many of these foreign doctors apptitude is in the field of medicine, it would scare the living daylights out of you. A lot of times (seems to be more yes now than not) physicians will do a referral to one of his cronies so they can share the wealth, especially true for patients who have insurance that pays well. In my opinion from what I have observed, medicine has become a racket, a big money making racket. From the pharmaceutical companies to the physicians. For example, WHY would a physician order a panel of lab tests (urinalysis, liver enzymes, cardiac profile) on a patient who came to the ER with a sprained wrist and had NO other complaints and according to the report no other symptoms of any illness whatsoever? So you see, it's just a big money making scam. And with the new government imposed healthcare thing coming up soon they have to make hay while the sun shines you see. I'm afraid the days of wine and roses will end for many physicians. Almost every claim will be treated like the Medicare claims are now.
