i don't think the color of skin matters...thats why i started with "I don't want to be taken wrongly or anything...." :P
My concern is that when I see a doctor in USA (whether Chinese, Japanese, Black, White, [i've seen a lot]), they normally take time to look at my body. For example, if my coughs are severe, they may actually look in my throat and ask me to stick out tongue. They might even press on chest or lungs to see how my breathing is. They may ask questions regarding my activities or past health, or even ask if i smoke. Afterwards, they may say make some suggestions as to what I may have, and explain what he is going to prescribe to me and WHY he is prescribing them to me. He most likely will also explain what the medicine will do to me, and if certain symptoms show or get worse, to let him know immediately.
These are things thaat I feel make a good doctor, because they make me feel comfortable with what it is he is doing, and giving to me.
On the other hand, ALL of the chinese doctors I have been to here in HK and the tons of doctors ive seen in China a few years ago, are all the same. They barely look at you, they dont ask many questions, and barely speak to me (even though they speak fluent english). the visit lasts no more than 3 mins, and then he asks you to step outside, in which if you arent fast enough, the door will end up hitting your ass.
After waiting outside for a few mins, the nurse will come and say "heres some pills, that will be 300 dollars".
Now mind you, I have no clue what the pills are, why I am getting them, and what they will do to me. I don't know if I am allergic to any of them cause they didnt ask. I don't know my diagnosis...so I ask. The nurse points to receipt...which says "diagnosis: *scribbly lines*" When asking what it says....they say...just a common cold.
this does not make me feel secure with the doctors recommendations or suggestions, and actually makes me quite concerned.
ALSO ... PDLM..... I got this when I flew back home to NY for christmas....and it is getting worse day by day.
