As one of the few orthodox surgeons in the tri state area I want to contest a growing issue in my field. We see many patients on a daily basis from a large demographic pool. But what we rarely see is Ethiopian Jews. This begs to bring up of the conversation- are we not treating them? Are they being left to fend for themselves? I won’t take this lying downNovember 22, 2019 1:18 am at 1:18 am #1803268
with all respect, I’m not sure what point your are trying to make. Perhaps there are not that many Ethiopian jewsi in the NYC metro area and those that are having health issues may go to a different hospital than where you practice. Otherwise, your not taking WHAT in a prone position is a bit unclear.November 22, 2019 6:58 am at 6:58 am #1803290
It seems pretty clear to me
Gadol hatorah, you’ve taken a big responsibility by naming yourself a gadol and you won’t stop to worry about the Ethiopian Jews??
vesamachta, does your ward’s Instagram page offer a translation to Ethiopianese? That seems like an obvious first stepNovember 22, 2019 8:30 am at 8:30 am #1803312
Vesamachta, how many Ethiopian Jews have been refused treatment and what is your source? I hear the same problem exists with Kenyan and Bangladeshi JewsNovember 22, 2019 9:13 am at 9:13 am #1803319
Yes good point Bangladesh is hard to pinpointNovember 22, 2019 10:59 am at 10:59 am #1803365
It’s all about supply and demandNovember 22, 2019 11:26 am at 11:26 am #1803388
Waiting…….November 22, 2019 12:10 pm at 12:10 pm #1803393
Stop being a victim and just waiting take action
That’s the problem with this generation they always rely on other ppl to butter their bagelsNovember 22, 2019 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm #1803416
You’re misunderstanding me (I think)
I’m waiting for a mod to do their jobNovember 22, 2019 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm #1803425

In other words, he is waiting for another official request to ask you to stop talking to yourself.November 23, 2019 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1803428
Pro Geshamke….yup, a self-proclaimed gadol is always able to post such deep thoughts as “huhhh?” in response to an otherwise unintelligible OP. There are many demographics that are under-represented in our health care system (both statistically and anecdotally) that have little to do with institutional racism within our health care system.November 23, 2019 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1803429
Even though I see the “(T)” in the thread topic I still wonder why the Moderators even approve idiotic questions like the one that started this thread.November 23, 2019 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #1803437
Strange comment…are you really a surgeon? I would think the vetting process and intellectual requirements of becoming a surgeon would likely have filtered out someone who would make a comment like that.
Ethiopian jews are few and far between. This is hardly a growing problem in any surgical field. What is the problem exactly?? What won’t you take lying down?
Bizarre thread!November 23, 2019 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #1803528
Maybe they just don’t get sick. Have you ever thought of that?November 23, 2019 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm #1803523
Very bizarre thread. I could understand if he was a surgeon in Israel and that was happening.
Care to clarify doc?November 24, 2019 12:21 am at 12:21 am #1803577
I don’t understand why everyone is yelling
You want to find me one thread on this forum that’s NOT bizarre?
You make it sound like it’s a crime
Or were you coming here to build trust and can’t believe that someone may have called themselves a surgeon when in reality they may be a shoemaker?November 24, 2019 12:21 pm at 12:21 pm #1803647
i dont see anyone YELLING which in forums like this means typing in uppercase. Many threads are bizarre but some are not. This one starts off with a premise that about Ethiopian Jews without any any idea if there is even an ethiopian jewish community in the tri-state area.November 24, 2019 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #1803756
BTW….I finally had a chance to check with a friend who is familiar with various ethnic Jewish Communities outside of EY. She said the Jewish agency had estimated perhaps a total of 1500 Ethiopian Jews settled in North America, some direct immigrants and others resettled after initial being flown into EY during the airlifts in the late 1980s. Small pockets scattered in neighborhoods from the New York metro area to Miami, LA, Toronto and Montreal. If the ehrliche (OP) surgeon had seen “large numbers” in his/her hospital I would suspect that itself would have been a neis me’shamyim since statistically, a few medical emergencies a year in any hospital would be the norm for a community of at most, several hundred in the tri-state area.
