Deaf physicians

Do you know of any deaf MD? Do you go to one?
because I was happily surprised to find there is is either 40 or 25 deaf physicians in USA.
(One source says 40, another 25)

I dont know personally of any deaf MDs but I'm glad there are.

Off topic there is also at least one blind MD. Pretty cool!

Yes I know a few deaf doctors/dentist. One of my friend have Dr. Earhart (sp) (not sure which one in the picture) since I never met her yet. Her deaf OB/GYN delivered her 2nd baby and also 3rd baby in November, 2005. She like her and had no problem with her. Dr. Stern is great doctor (the one in purple suit). My son loved her!

As for deaf dentist...not too bad. As myself hate dentist! AHHH!
*running away* hee!

I think breaking barriers like that is fantastic.
but surely SOME specialisations are out of bounds for us - for example i can't imgaine deaf cardiologist.

I'm applying to UC Berkeley for Ph.D. this fall. (My professor encourages me to apply there. I have to do well on my GRE though!)

cool there! I wonder where most deaf physicans live, I believe mostly in the East US. Off point, there's about 100+ deaf pilots in the United States that have license to fly light planes, I don't know about big planes with jet engines.
