SCHWEDT, GERMANY - APRIL 30: Medical doctor Amin Ballouz uses a stethoscope to listen to the heart beat of local resident Michael Muetze, who suffers from high blood pressure and frequent headaches, during a checkup at Ballouz's parctice on April 30, 2013 in Schwedt, Germany. Ballouz was born in Lebanon and moved to Germany as a child, and has had a general practitioner's practice in the small, east German town of Schwedt since 2010. Many of his patients are elderly and live in small villages in the region around Schwedt and Ballouz travels daily in one of his five Trabant cars to pay housecalls. Eastern Germany faces a chronic shortage of country doctors to serve rural communities. (Photo by Theo Heimann/Getty Images)
