World of Doctors

Edwin P. Athens, Greece


October 22, 2013

I currently work at World of Doctors in Omonia. It serves a mostly immigrant population in Athens, and because of this, there are so many languages that are spoken at the clinic. Patients speak French, Farsi, Hindi, and much more.

All the nurses and doctors speak a variety of languages that allows for great patient-doctor communication.

Many of the patients that come in on Wednesday, which is the day I work, come in for diabetes related check ups. A lot of Arab immigrants suffer from diabetes, because of the diets that they've become accustomed to in Greece, as well as their diabetes prone genetics.
