Doctors without Accents Attract More Patients in the US

English pronunciation for professionalsThe New York Times noted in a 2010 article that doctors and practicing physicians had a greater inability to attract patients if they had an accent or an international degree. Although international medical school graduates make up nearly 30 percent of all primary care doctors and are required to meet the same qualifications, potential patients notice the accent and tend to choose a less-skilled senior doctor without an accent, even if their waiting room was overflowing, over being helped sooner by a doctor with an accent.
