Asian-American doctor says white nationalists refuse her care

(CNN)

Dr. Esther Choo is an Asian-American emergency room physician who has practiced medicine for more than a decade. Yet, she says, a few times a year, a patient will refuse to let her treat them. Solely because of her race.

Choo, who works in Oregon, first shared her experience of dealing with racist patients who shun her care in a viral Twitter thread last Sunday.

 

"The conversation usually goes like this. Me: 'I understand your viewpoint. I trained at elite institutions & have been practicing for 15 years. You are welcome to refuse care under my hands, but I feel confident that I am the most qualified to care for you. Especially since the alternative is an intern.'

And they invariably pick the intern, as long as they are white. Or they leave," she wrote in successive tweets.

...

"What I'm hearing from my colleagues is that this is a daily occurrence for many of them, at least experiences of prejudice."

Let them come into the ER with something life threatening (stroke, heart attack etc) and I guarantee they won't care what color the doctor is. They'd probably be begging for her help then.

My source is CNN.

They're a bit more reputable than Breitbart.

When someone is literally in so much pain the go to the emergency room, they would rather risk death than let an Asian treat them?

Die then tbh, and say hi to your fav Hitler for me when you land in Hell.

And Choo's experience of intolerance is not unique in the medical community, she told CNN's Christi Paul on Saturday.

 

 

She was also interviewed by CNN
