We have a couple of Pinoy and Pinay docs here in our area, all very well respected. No Pinoy dentist here though.

Macks, you are right.  She's not just a Chef but the Executive Chef of the White House.  The first woman, the first Filipina and minority Executive Chef. Her name is Cristeta Comerford.

hahaha. I would have beamed with pride in hearing that.

Side story, one time my mom was driving fast to her hospital and she was stopped by the NJ State Police, they saw her in her uniform. Asked here where she was going, and my mom replied telling them that she was an I.C.U nurse and was going to work. The police let her go immediately. Turned out that that officer was taken to the ICU some years back after a shooting.

Saved. And it was by a Filipina nurse as well.

Filipinos DOMINATE the nursing field here in the United States. Every hospital in the United States, you will see Filipinos in the ER, ICU, OR, Tele, Med Surg etc. Especially in major hospital systems such as Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, University of Pennsylvania Hospital, New York University Hospital Systems etc.

Filipino Doctors go into Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Surgery. So this is why alot of Americans know Filipino doctors because of the 'generalized' fields they go into. Pinoy Family Practice physicians care for American citizens ranging from ages 1 till 90s even in the 100s of  years old. The generalization patients have on Filipino doctors are:

1) Very approachable
2) Very intelligent
3) Clear vocals; easily understood
4) Confident
5) Compassionate and very 'personal'

I think it is the medical training Filipino doctors get in the medical school in Philippines. They focus on patient interaction, specifically schools such as The University of the East, University of the Philippines, Santo Tomas University, Far Eastern University, Cebu Doctor's University.

The Filipino doctors that I've shadowed in the past including Neuro-surgeons, cardiothoracic surgeons, gastroenterologists, nephrologists, family practioners, General Internists, and Podiatrists were very well versed in their specific fields. Patients reacted to them with humility, and respect.

Physicians and Surgeons can tend to be obnoxious at times in how they deal with patients; probably due to their stressed hours, and busy schedules. I've witnessed this personally when I've rotated with American physicians. Their patient interaction is very cold--there is almost a wall that separates the physician and the patient. You can tell that the patient is listening and has some kind of fear of the physician or hesitance to talk back.

However when I rotated with Pinoy doctors, they were very caring towards the patient and very approachable. Instead of the patient reaching out, it was they, the physician-surgeon that reached out. Asking about family history, interests, etc. They start a very warm conversation to open the patient--then from there go into patient history, medical history. When I talked to Dr. Villanueva about this and why he did it, he said he does it because if you open the patient up, the more cooperative they are to you--and will be more likely to trust you. Very strategic kaayo.

Sure there have been some Filipino doctors that were very serious, pero they have to be given their work condition and their manner of work. Filipino Surgeons are extremely strict and almost unapproachable, but their record in successful surgical procedures are impressive.

I seriously think that the way Philippine Medical Schools teach medicine is superior to American methodology.

and what about the comment of teri hatcher in the tv series, desperate housewives?
"The difference between a smart person and a wise person is that a smart person knows what to say and a wise person knows whether or not to say it."

Totally biased and has no basis at all. If the Filipino Doctor was as impudent as she claims in that T.V show, then the United States wouldn't be importing Filipino Doctors.

Suffice to say, there are over 20,000 Filipino Physicians in the United States. I think this fact bears witness to the high quality of our Doctors.

The T.V show 'Desperate House Wives' has been already cancelled due to lack of funding. Filipino doctors are still and continue to care and treat American patients to this day. And thousands of us Filipino-Americans are in medical school to continue the legacy of our Filipino compatriots.

You know what made me smile? In the interview I had with one medical admission director he asked me if I was a Filipino. I answered, 'Yes', and he warmly commented, "Filipinos and Indians constitute a considerable amount of students in American Medical Schools."

Racist comments like that of Ms. Hatcher is a testament to the kinds of derogatory comments we still have to go through. But I view people like her as mere pebbles. One simply just needs to walk over pebbles. Or shove them aside. :)

That comment of Teri Hatcher was a result of her being idiotic - or the scriptwriter's ignorance.

i suspect that the scriptwriter has some axe to grind to a certain filipino doctor that's why the script was made.

Well, that's too bad!  The scriptwriter may have wanted to stir the viewers but in the end, it only showed how ignorant he or she was.
