Let's Talk Medicine
“Amin’s passion and dedication to the concept of medical travel is refreshing and welcomed by some of the key stakeholders within the industry. His blog, Patients Crossing Oceans, is informative and thought provoking — encompassing some very important topics relating to quality healthcare.
I look forward to Amin’s continued contributions to help develop informed consumers of international healthcare for many years to come.”
Managing Director, Co-Author
“I first encountered Amin through the University of St. Thomas course I teach….Financing and Funding the U.S. Health Care System. Throughout the class Amin showed a keen interest and desire in finding ways to better serve the Marketplace in the U.S. and beyond. It does not surprise me that he has chosen the Medical Tourism area as a focus in that it matches his passion, energy and commitment to explore and find new and creative ways to serve the market.
Amin’s daily Blog clearly shows his devotion to this growing industry which necessitates transparency and public reporting in order to become a topic of choice for the American patients choosing to travel abroad.
I think Amin is doing a good job opening eyes and displaying information on his blog that is very useful to the medical travelers of the world.”
“Amin has had a great interest in the topic of international healthcare travel for a long time and he wrote an outstanding paper on the topic as part of his master’s thesis. He also presented a paper to his colleagues which was very well accepted. This is a subject that is not going to go away and I am pleased that Amin is continuing his interest in this area because it offers not only intellectual but significant business opportunities for him as well.
His work is also important as we continue work on dealing with healthcare costs in the United States. There are lessons that can be learned from our foreign neighbors on how high quality Health care can be delivered at a lower cost. The website that Amin has developed will also contribute significantly to the knowledge and interest on the topic”.
“Mr. Etemad’s grasp on the topic of Medical Tourism is fantastic! He brings a wealth of knowledge to the discussion that is long overdue. Anyone interested in learning more about healthcare options abroad, should have this blog on their favorites list!”

“Amin Etemad is a passionate advocate and Subject Matter Expert (SME) on the topic of Medical Tourism. As an MBA in Healthcare Administration and Medical Group Management, Amin has the academic knowledge that supports his experiences in this field. It is evident that the world is changing and the healthcare paradigm is evolving at a staggering rate.
Medical tourism offers a real alternative to those seeking quality healthcare delivered in a unique fashion. When I have questions relating to medical tourism, I call on Amin for answers.”

This was not a topic that I knew anything about but after seeing Mr. Etemad’s work I now have a real interest in this topic and I fully intend to follow his work on this blog.”
“Having Amin as a member of my cohort at the University of St. Thomas’s MBA program has greatly enriched my perspective into global Healthcare. Specifically, Amin’s passion and understanding of Medical Tourism, brought to light the presence of Healthcare alternatives.
These Healthcare alternatives aren’t just a-la-carte menu items; they point to a dichotomy and further expansion of Healthcare for all. Medical Tourism is a market that is not only expanding, but highlighting consumer-driven Healthcare. Patient’s grabbing hold of their own healthcare, and making decisions based on cost and quality.
Medical Tourism is a very REAL healthcare option, and Amin is at the forefront of increasing transparency and education on the subject matter. What an honor to follow the insights and growth of healthcare through a fellow classmate. Amin’s leadership and passion pour out of these blogs…keep ‘em coming!”
