I USED to say that ... but recently met a lovely female Indian doctor, not at all unattractive but most importantly she was well spoken, LISTENED to the patient (my son) and didn't treat either of us like ignorant savages. Others I've had the misfortune to deal with have failed on ALL those counts.

I am answering this directly as I was asked directly.

My problem with them comes from having worked with and under over a dozen at various times. Only one individual out of about 14 of them, all supposedly with decades of experience and "highly regarded" degrees (from Indian universities), was anything but dangerously incompetent, arrogant, self righteous and utterly racist ... in my personal opinion, not worth feeding to the crocs! That one individual I mentioned was completely different and acknowledged that his training was useless and actually talked and listened to the people who knew what was going on and what did and didn't work. THAT guy was a good thinker and very bright. He was also treated VERY badly by the "superior" managers in the company, ALL of whom fitted into the former category. THAT guy, incidentally, was a Tamil.
Throw in a half dozen incompetent doctors and some random Indians calling me trying to tell me that they are from "Windows Operating System" and that my computer is sending out alerts to them and viruses (I use Linux by the way, Windows is ... for the birds) and my distrust for the "brand" is pretty well cemented.

I have no time for stereotypes, this is all from my own personal experience. If someone else's experience differs, I can't argue with that.
