One Sikh In The Doctors’ Lounge

I haven’t hit you with one of ZDoggMD’s riffs lately, so here goes. Take a listen, it’s only two minutes. As usual, while the parody is cute and well done, he is also making a point. Here, it is a simple one. Immigrant physicians make a major contribution to U.S. healthcare. Not only do they help to reduce the general impact of the “doctor shortage,” they also help significantly in the care of disadvantaged patients that American-born doctors tend to avoid if they can.

Bottom Line. As we ponder the best way to handle “immigration,” we had best make sure that the borders are porous enough that we allow another Sikh, or whatever,  to make his/her way into the doctors’ lounge.
