What about IMGs from Asian or European countries? I don't know if this is true, but it seems like they get more respect than DOs (from nurses, pa, etc) in MD hospitals...

The "stigma" against DOs ranges from noticeable to non-existent across the country but is greater for IMGs (even though, it is generally a problem for pre-med and med students rather than residents and practicing physicians or your patients).
