This is not Obama playing a doctor, this is Zaur Akhmedov – a pediatrician from Samara city.
However he is usually called Doctor Obama. No wonder, he looks like an exact copy of the American president. Some people, who see him flippantly walking without bodyguards can’t get back their breath, but his little patients have got used to him and are always ready to show their tongues.
He is always in good mood, smiling and talkative. Children like him as well as their parents, they often say “We are going to our dear Obama”, “Now Mister President will examine you”, and when he is asked to autograph, he writes “Akhmedov (Obama)”.
In his native city Zaur is a local attraction. When he smiles he really resembles Barack Obama.
But the doctor himself doesn’t see such a striking likeness. When he looks in a mirror he tells himself he has a different look but when he sees real Obama on TV, it seems to him that it is he who’s near the White House talking before cameras.
In his blood Obama has genes of Scot, English, Indian and Kenyan ancestors … Zaur’s family is quite more simple – his mom is Russian, dad is Azerbaijanian.
However they both have something in common – they are both left-handed and Barack Obama’s father is rumored to have been a healer of some tribe.
Zaur’s dream is to meet his American twin, but he’s a busy man and hardly this dream will ever come true.
He still hasn’t found his “Michelle”, work requires too much time – 30 patients a day is not a limit.
