I'm completing a senior preceptorship and I have an adult patient who told me his parents are from Iran. I know that there culture is very conservative or Arabic, so I've been trying to communicate with the patient in Arabic. It hasn't been working and I don't know if it's because I don't speak the whole language. I also want to know how do you deal with Middle Eastern people, if they don't want to be touched or assessed because their culture restricts it? And is it appropriate to speak to this patient only in English like my preceptor does? Thanks.
