There was a racist doctor in Hospital Universiti Malaya


Those racist doctors have to be fired from practicing medical profession.

This is old story happened in four or five years ago, my elder brother phoned me to inform me that a Malay female doctor in hospital UM was using a ball pen to diagnose his numb hand. The result is no illness except my brother got nothing to do for visiting the hospital.

My elder brother suffered a minor stroke a few months later.

I told my brother complaining to me is useless, I asked him walked straight to hospital UM main office and complained the incident to the head of hospital. The hospital authorities was surprised for having a racist and “religious” doctor in the hospital who cannot touch another man other than her husband with her bare hand.

UM hospital wrote a letter to apologize to my brother for the incident. I am not sure what action is taken against the Malay female doctor.

Submit evidence on racist doctor: Guan Eng

GEORGE TOWN, July 5 (Bernama) — Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has challenged the opposition to provide proof pertaining to a Chinese doctor who allegedly gave poor service to a Malay patient at a government hospital.

He said this was important and serious as the issue smacked of racism.

“I hope opposition members can be responsible and disclose the doctor’s name so that an investigation could be undertaken.

“If it (the claim) is untrue, then the opposition must be responsible enough to retract (the allegation) and apologise to all doctors in Malaysia,” he said during the winding-up speech of Penang Governor Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas in the State Assembly here today.

On Wednesday, the sitting turned into a battle of wits between RSN Rayer (DAP-Seri Delima) and Datuk Roslan Saidin (BN-Pinang Tunggal) over an alleged racial issue that caused a commotion in the House.

The two quarrelled after Rayer claimed that Roslan tried to spark a racial issue when he raised the issue of the doctor and Malay patient.

Lim said, if the allegation was true, the doctor should be fired and his medical licence revoked for breaching the ‘Hippocrates Oath’.

He also expressed regret that the opposition linked the issue with the ‘Chinese tsunami’ as causing the doctor to be racist.

Meanwhile, Roslan said he raised the issue so that such incidents would not occur in the country.
