I went to York ER room just a week ago and that place was excellent - my nurse, my resident, etc.

Which planet are you all from? In the US (land of the free) every person has a constitutional right to be treated an equal (citizen or non-citizen; Arab, Persian or a Pennsylvanians)and medical doctor or not. You should get all the facts before making judgements..Unfortunately, racism is a disease that is quite common everywhere (even here in the US). For Dr. Mohebi to even get the job to start off with it means there must have been no American born citizens applying for the specific job or that he is three times more qualified which makes it strange that he was terminated. I hope the law sides with the truth..

I have read all comments viewable in reference to this situation. I 100% agree w/city_surfer.I am an American...NOT African American or Black,but AMERICAN. We all have the right to be treated equally.I've lived here in Pennsylvania for 2yrs. and have encountered multiple racial comments,demeanors,slurs,etc.W HY? Particularly @ York Hospital....I travel to Maryland to recieve healthcare for my family...not by choice,but because of treatment. I don't blame ANYONE for standing up for what he/she believe is right or even legal.Is rasism ever going to end?OF COURSE NOT! Remember This...Teach our children better and our world just might survive as awhole and not in pieces.

These are the same stupid and racist people on this forum threat that voted for a stupid president such as G.W Bush to take us where we are.

A bunch of illiterate people who don't even know that Iranians are not Arabs but Persians and by the time our ancestors were jumping from a tree to another tree these guys were leading the world.
So please get educated and look at your own past where you come from.

I think you are referring to the Saudis or Mideastern Indian Phychiatrist practicing at the Lebanon Veterans Hospital in Penna. and other Veterans Hospitals across the country. Our neighbors son is a Marine who completed his time in the Iraq War and can not return because of permanent injuries. He has leg injuries from an explosion while out in the field and came back with mental problems from smelling burnt flesh and cleaning up body parts. Maybe this all sounds disturbing to hear these details, but these are the facts and this war is reality. This Marine Vet goes to the Veterans Hospital in PA for mental counseling for PTSD and his last visit they gave him a Mideastearn Doctor with a turban and the word pronunciation is hard to understand. He can't handle first off looking at this doctor and then communicating to him about his Irag experience. How ludicrus and uncaring has our Govenment become. What torment to give our returning soldiers. And I just have not been able to ever understand why these people are permitted to come to the United States and live the good life while our men and women are fighting for their country over there. Not to say they are not educated and quality doctors; but why don't they stay there and fight for their own country and serve in the Medical field there. An immediate member of our family, 20yrs. old is being deployed with the Striker Brigade very shortly to serve. We pray for her everyday and for her safe return. But again why is she going there to fight while they stay here.

Before anyone starts jumping on me about racial remarks. I am not castigating this doctor for her race. I have received medical and dental care fom Indian doctors and it has been some of the best treatment. Many of them come to our country with over and above qualifications but must repeat their residency and be recertified in our country. That is basically most likely what Dr. Moehbi is doing. Discrimination is against human nature and it should not happen in any country especially the US.

With that attitude Mr serious, you better pray that you never get sick. you also should pray that if you get sick, you better have your american doctors waiting to save you or else you will die eating your words for such ignorance.

"Hard to understand"? Puh-leeze. Your post is so full of errors it's hard to read.
Seriously.
1) If you'd "rather Be worked on" etc. is "Another thing!", what was the first thing(!)?
2) What do Arabs have to do with this topic? Iranians are Persians, not Arabs. It's like saying Mexicans are Canadian - sure, you're in the right hemisphere, but not even that close really.
3) While this doctor is not an Arab, he is an American - it says so quite clearly in the article's second sentence. It's clear from your post you don't write very well - can you at least read?
4) Your use of capitalization is interesting to say the least. Why, I can't help wondering, were "Be" and "Go" and "Phychiatrist" capitalized?
5) What exactly is a "Phyciatrist", anyway? I thought maybe that one could be written off as a simple typo, but "s" and "h" are no closer on the keyboard than, say, Mexico and Canada.
6) "personaly" [sic]... "a AMERICAN" [sic]... "Veterans" [sic]... "cant" [sic]... not sure if there's room to explore these as well.
This doctor, a naturalized American citizen, can in all likelihood read, write and speak English better than you've managed to demonstrate with your post. Why not keep your xenophobic comments to yourself, or at least learn to use the English language correctly before sharing your prejudices with the rest of the world? You're embarrassing our great nation with your misinformed rants.
With that attitude Mr serious, you better pray that you never get sick. you also should pray that if you get sick, you better have your american doctors waiting to save you or else you will die eating your words for such ignorance.

Who asked your country to go and fight a stupid war. Any sensible person knew that this war was not necesary. You should blame your president for killing and maiming our young men. So cut it out

You are reallly narrowminded. People who are NARROWMINDED like you don't do well in life. I am really curious, what have you really achieved in your life?

Dr. Parsa Mohebi does awesome hair transplants!! I’ve seen a lot of his work and I’ve talked with some of his patients and everyone I’ve talked to LOVES his work. Im getting a hair restoration done with him in a few weeks and can’t wait to get my hair back!

As for the posts I’ve read about where he’s from- who cares! Some of these posts are completely ridiculous. Dr. Mohebi is a very nice guy with very respectable qualifications.

York Hospital is a horrific place! You need to check into how many patients end up dieing from hospital aquired infections at that hell hole! Don't go there unless you want to contract sepsis or MRSA. I'm sure that they alter their data about what the real cause of death is with most of the patients.

He should be glad that he isn't employed there anymore. The staff is counting on the fact that the majority of the populace is composed of rednecks, so they won't complain, or have any resources to challange the status quo.

I'm onto you, York Hospital. I know that you kill people without conscience. I wonder if it will come back to haunt you someday?

Ever hear of slander, watch what you say for you may regret it one day! I don't care for YH either but I would never be so foolish to accuse them of killing people, especially when all computers are traceable thru the computer ID number it has online.
