    Hi,
    It depends on the individual personality,
    not on the basis of nationality.
    I had a bad experience with Indian doctor,
    she never opens her mouth. She allots only
    5 minutes for each patient.
    Another Indian doctor was really good.
    She is understanding and empathetic.
    A Korean doctor delivered my baby. He is OK type.
    So, in my experience getting a good doctor
    depends upon your luck.
    Best of luck anyway.

    HI
    I too think its ur good luck to get gd doctors.i myself had an experience with american doctor recently during my minor surgery and everthing went perfect.
    But before the surgery we were really going mad whether we had taken the right decision as going with american doctor instead of indian.but onces everything goes well we feel they were better...
    bye

    Word of mouth through family, friends collegues who are on similar health plan is the best way. But ofcourse we may need a different doc or we may have a different insurance... if so I do my research through the insurance company's website. I check the school where they earned the degree to see if its a reputable place, next is the number of years of experience longer the better for surgeons, the hospitals where they practice & also you can google search the doc's name for any malpractice suits. There are paid searches to find if there are any malpractice suits too. After all this you can still end up not liking that person's way of therapy too. So this is only a guideline to check out.
