Mosocw Medical Exam Controversy

Awhile back there was a discussion about problems at a med clinic in Moscow that was harassing females during their exams. My wife will eventually have to get her exam in Moscow and I'm wondering what is the current situation with med exams?

What do folks suggest is the best clinic for the exam?

Thanks!

I don't believe those stories about harassment.

People, give me a break here. It is Moscow, a civilized city after all!

Where do you get those strange ideas about Russia?

I've been to Russian 5 times and Moscow 3 times, and i would not call it civilized. Crime is high and it is not safe at night. The mafia runs the taxis and airports and most everything else. The hotels and restaurants are all rip-offs, and recently the Mosocw traffic makes NYC look like a rural town.

Additionally, Russian men have a well-deserved reputation for mistreatment of women. Along those lines, the MOM exam clinic was notorious for making the women strip and then having a staring fest complete with verbal profanity much like one might expect at a Russian strip club.

Civilized?

I won't argue the definition of "civilized," but this is not the first time I've heard of inappropriate behavior at the MOM clinic. In fact it's about the 3rd or 4th time. My SO won't be going through MOM, that's for sure.

My S/O went through the clinic in Vladivostok, so if your S/O is out that way..... it may be a better option to go to that one prior to going to Moscow.

Oh sure, how can we compete with the civilized America where there's no crime at all. I mean, no one can shoot you at a mall in the middle of the day :whistle: If crime and mafia and high prices are what makes you label a country "uncivilized", then your motherland is at the top of the list.

Well, it's your opinion, you're entitled to it. I'm entitled to mine, and I think your opinion is wrong, and if my husband ever dared to say something like that about my country, he would now be divorced and thinking of what to do with his lonely life. I'm sure glad you happen to have a spouse with views similar to yours.

And you know s**t about Russian men.

America has it's issues...for sure. But everybody seems to want to live here for some reason. Anyway...you can always go back to Russia. And I know enough about Russian men to know that tens of thousands of Russian women are looking outside Russia for men.

Nancy has every right to be indignant. Moscow is every bit as "civilized" (whatever the hell that means) as any other large, modern city on this planet. If you want to criticize Moscow for the crime, you've obviously never been to our nation's capital, Washington D.C. It's the murder capital of the world. If you want to criticize Moscow for depravity, you've obviously never been to Los Angeles. Organized crime? Welcome to Los Vegas. Political corruption? 3 words: Diebold voting machines.

And you're right, America still ranks right up there for places people want to live in the world. It's a great country. But we don't have to knock down someone else's country (literally or figuratively) to prove it.

Sorry, I don't mean to stir things up (well ok, maybe a little bit). But I think we need to start looking right in our own backyard before we start name-calling other countries.

This is exactly the kind of attitude that makes me fall off my chair.

Not everyone wants to live in America. Most people in the world don't.

And these "thousands of women" are looking outside for other reasons, not because the Russian men are so bad. I certainly wish you all the best and hope you won't one day find out what these reasons are.

And yes, I can always go back to Russia. Thank God for that.

I wish you the best also...and maybe you should thank god you live in the USA cause so many foreign women on this site want to come here so badly.

I've had 5 Russian girlfriends and talked to many others...and they all say the same thing...the Russian men drink too much vodka...even if married they chase young women, and they're lazy.
