Default Extradition from the US of Dr Patel

Dr Patel was a surgeon at a hospital in Queensland, who has been implicated in a number of 'mistakes' leading to death. A nurse was involved in being the whistle blower.

The reason why I mentioned this, is because the man is being extradited from Portland, Oregon, today.

Apparently he was successfully sued by a patient in the US as well

Interested to hear your thoughts.

The only doctors I know of who screw up and flee the country are those from India. Seems everyone in India, from the upper class, ends up being a doctor or they are shamed by their family. I wonder how easy it is to get a doctors degree in India?

I've had several professional and personal issues with Indian educated physicians. No thank you...I'll admit my prejudice :th_kickme:

I read about his mistakes before and it's about time he faced the consequences of his actions.

The latest...
Dr Patel has been transferred to a maximum security prison in I think, Los Angeles? Looks like a huge block of concrete!

Anyway, now we are waiting on Condaleeza Rice to sign the appropriate paperwork before a certain date, or apparently the man can walk free!

Queensland police officers arrived in the US today...

Y'know, I am a firm believer in everyone deserving a fair trial, but I'm really tired of extradition holding things up. There's a local doc from here who was in court, on trial for molestation of his stepdaughter, and he got away from the courthouse and was caught in Uraguay.......................two freakin' years ago!!!!! It took over a year to get him back here to serve out his sentence.

I agree with Dutchie. I've met some Indian docs who were awesome, including my dad's nephro, but I also met more that I personally would not see as a pt.

We have some great Indian docs that I have seen.
BUT...as for Mr Patel (he's a surgeon, so they would call him that here)...
Apparently they are still finding more cases against him.

I just hope the judge doesn't turn around and say that the jury pool will be biased against him due to media coverage, so the case would have to be dismissed - remember that paedophile case I mentioned? Nahhh, don't think that will happen.

I'll admit I was starting to get woried that the extradition paperwork would'nt be signed by the American authorities and he would be allowed to go free :th_fighting:

One thing about the US.....if there is pretty good evidence warranting extradition we will not fight it. We've been in too many extradition fights with other countries trying to get criminals back here to stand trial.

What a creep. I wonder if he is the same guy that bought West Anaheim Medical Center and then fired everyone, hired only Indian and Pakistani nurses and docs and then refused to take Medi and indigent patients?
