There are a bunch of ungrateful pricks in this community. They bitch about not enough docs...the hospital gets them...they bitch because the docs are foreign and take jabs at their religion and culture(which they obviously don't really know anything about the beliefs of any of these doctors on a personal level)....they bitch because the this community is always keeping poor little johhnie yazzie down because of his race/religious/cultural background (yes im pointing out the irony for those of you who are too slow to catch on)...so when you all are having a heart attack or whatever your ailment is go to mercy...nobody cares as long as you shut up and stop being a panzy ass cry baby because san juan didn't provide you with good care because the truth is, wether you believe it or not, they do provide good care even though there are bad outcomes from time to time but thats because its a HOSPITAL full of SICK people. BAD things happen. its part of LIFE.

Undeserved area is right - no one deserves this sort of abuse, but then again, it is The Daily Crimes Against Journalism. Ace editing - I guess this error kills any hope of entering this story for a future award. Troy Turner, the Award-Seeking Editor, and his crack team of cub reporters, strikes again. Huzzah Huzzah!!

can they speak good enough English to understand what patient is trying to say about symtoms. that is the problem I have had with these doctors from India and Pakistan. yes they speak English some but not enough to understand ways of Americans to comprehend what a sentence means even in differents areas of the US far less from other countries. I think it is dangerous to my health if they do not understand me and often I can not understand them good enough either. too many in AZ are like that. they speak English but not good enough to be treating patients than could misunderstand can kill them

The Dr Who wrote:
The Project finally been made public. It was found in a raid of a luxurious villa in Campione, Switzerland on November 7, 2001. The target of the raid was Youssef Nada, who has had active association with the Muslim Brotherhood for more than 50 years.
Included in the documents seized was a 14-page plan written in Arabic and dated December 1, 1982, which outlined a 12-point strategy to "establish an Islamic government on earth" - identified as The Project. According to testimony given to Swiss authorities by Nada, the unsigned document was prepared by "Islamic researchers." It represents a flexible, multi-phased, long-term approach to the "cultural invasion" of the West.
Some of its recommendations include:
Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamic actions
Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations
Involving ideologically committed Muslims in institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations
Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be put into service of Islam

Prejudism isn't only rampant in San Juan County,
but all over this country and the world.
In the east the Italians hate the Irish and
Irish hate the Italians.
In the north, the Swedes hate the Germans and
other Scandinavian folks and the Germans hate all of them.
In the South, it's the African Americans, in Texas
it is people not born in Texas.
In Colorado, Utah, Arizona, the transplanted Californians are hated.
In Florida, it is the Cubans.
It goes on and on.
People I personally know that are prejudiced are very insecure and don't do enough good in their own

life but to attack others.
Then we have the religious groups that have fought
wars for eons because of someones religious preference.
It doesn't matter what color or ethnic background
you have, there will be somebody somewhere that is
going to hate you.

you seem to have curiously excluded 'The muslims' hate all infidels and are taught to either convert them, enslave them, or .. if those fail 'kill them'. Interesting omission.
