Dr. Paul Ryan a San Bernardino, California cardiologist with Pulse Cardiology is condemned on Yelp after insisting Spanish speaking patient, Maria Ramirez speak English according to daughter, Yuset Galura. 

A California doctor is being condemned on rating service, Yelp, following claims of going on a racist tirade against a Spanish speaking patient.

Yuset Galura was accompanying her 67-year-old mother, Maria Ramirez, to her heart appointment at Pulse Cardiology in San Bernardino on Thursday when Dr. Paul Ryan, 76, started criticizing Ramirez for speaking Spanish.

‘As soon as the doctor walked in the room, she asked him if he spoke Spanish and that was all it took for him to snap and start insulting her about speaking Spanish, being in this country and not knowing his language,’ Galura explained via KTLA.

It’s then, when the daughter took to recording the unfolding episode on her cellphone. Naturally.

‘You don’t need to do nothing but tell me if something’s wrong with her. If she’s OK, if not, then I’ll translate to my mother. You don’t need to tell me that she needs to learn English,’ the daughter is heard telling the cardiologist in the video, which Galura later shared on Facebook. And has since gone viral. 

‘It’s not the same,’ the cardiologist replies. 

You know where this is going don’t you kids….

Dr. Paul Ryan cardiologist: No business working in medicine?

Galura says by sharing the video she hopes will ‘unmask the doctor,’ who she thinks has ‘no business working, ‘ in medicine.

‘If you don’t like being around Mexicans, Latinos, Hispanic, or any other race other than what your race is, then you have any room in the medical field,’ Galura explained further.  

Galura explained her mother was a Mexican-born US citizen who has been in the country (legally- thank you very much) for 45 years- while not speaking English.

And that’s when the floodgates (naturally…) were released.

Scores of people have since gone to Pulse Cardiology’s Yelp page to post their own negative experiences with Ryan as well as to express their outrage along with accusing the doctor of racism.

Yes welcome to the viral age of social media- where mercy is a bygone concept.

Pulse Cardiology conducts investigation into Dr. Paul Ryan cardiologist ‘English speaking rant’. 

A regard of the cardiologist’s social media profile revealed Dr. Paul Ryan earning his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in 1971 and practicing medicine for more than 40 years. Of note, the cardiologist’s profile on dignityhealth.org indicates Dr. Paul Ryan speaking both English and Spanish (but only when he wants to…).

Pulse Cardiology has since responded, saying Ryan isn’t treating patients while they ‘investigate’ the incident.

‘The reported incident does not reflect the values of Pulse physicians, assistants and administrators,’ the practice said in a released statement Monday. ‘Since its inception three years ago as the Inland Empire’s premier cardiology practice, Pulse has proudly served all patients regardless of nationality with a diverse staff that is fluent in several languages, including Spanish.’

Galura and her mother- protested outside Pulse cardiology’s office Monday. Galura says her mom still hasn’t received the results of her appointment.

And then there were these reactions on social media. See what you think?
