A lot of American born physicians don't want to live and work in a small rural town. If a foreign physician comes to such an area and works it is often easier for them to obtain their visa to stay in the United States. Often they find that they like it here and wind up staying.

If you were an American doctor and could go anywhere you wanted to work and live, would YOU voluntarily live in Pikeville? Walter has to pay a gonload of cash to get and keep the American docs he DOES have. You'll notice that about all of them are hospital employees and not in private practice.
