Some Korean doctors in the USA never ever go by a Western name, right?

    Why would they go by western names? The only people of recent foreign extraction who do were born here and actually GIVEN western names, or they have a name that is particularly difficult to pronounce. They may use an easier nickname.

    Most foreigners who come here keep their names. We are long past the era when names were routinely westernized.

    Don't ask this question again.

    They should be proud of the names they have.

    My last regular doctor was African and he was very smart.

    Before that I had a doctor I think was Hindu and he was a good doctor too.

    But the best doctor I ever had was a Muslim doctor and I hope there will be some Muslim doctors in the United States soon.   The United States needs some good doctors from other countries.

    Sounds likely. Why would or should they go by a Western name if they don't feel like it?

    Yep - and why would they?

    I don’t know about Korean doctors, but I had a doctor from India that didn’t have a western name. He was very good. I guess you could say he saved my life, to make along story short.
