In India we also have a quite few doctors who have come in through the reservation category and as such may not be good enough in their proffession.Such doctors may be playing with the lives of people.And oue ministers do not want to take any risk.The efficiency of foreign doctors is proven and they also have more advanced twechniques.And when the govt. is paying fotr their travel and also for the treatment, they always avail the facilty.

We have good hospitals but not super speciality ones. In India they can do a complex cardiac surgery but then in Loma Linda hospital, if u r rushed to ambulance due to heart attack, and u r ambulance gets into an accident, u can still b saved. In India, if that happens, u r a goner.
INdian hospitals rule, but I find that even the best of the best simply lack a rapid reaction team. We are quit sloppy in this field. We just want everything smooth and streamlined. When something goes too complicated, we just raise the white flag, raise a huge bill and call in the next patient.
Also, INdians have still not gotten rid of the concept that foreign lands are just other countries and not some superior paradise.
