Immigrants Are Delaying Medical Care Because Of “Inflammatory Rhetoric.”

Psychiatry resident Colin Buzza, MD, MPH, MSC, an American Psychiatric Association Public Psychiatry Fellow, writes in STAT (4/12) “First Opinion” that “inflammatory rhetoric toward immigrants” leads many to “avoid doctor visits” and delay necessary medical care. Dr. Buzza contends that he tries to reassure his immigrant patients, but “no amount of reassurance could offset…news of hate crimes and immigration raids.”
