Reader Feedback: Slovak doctors over New York's

I find it surprising that anyone would call back here to New York to "make-sure" that a highly trained Slovak doctor was prescribing the correct antibiotics ("Guiltily grateful for Slovakia's doctors" by Robert Thomson, Culture Shock, Vol. 7, No.49, December 24 - January 13).

With a child, one only wants the best. But to say New York offers the best health care is a scary statement. You see in Slovakia, people study medicine out of a profound benign calling. In New York, people study Medicine so they can afford a co-op on Park and a Christmas Holiday in Aspen.

So who would you rather have treating your child, a doctor who has the kid's interest at heart, or one that's worried about the price of the Hamptons Mortgage or on the pending Co-op board meeting to find out if he can combine his 2-bed apt with the studio next door?

I would prefer a Doctor in Poprad any day of the week.
