This paper explains that the journal article, "Mexican-American's Perceptions of Culturally Competent Care," is an extremely useful start in answering the research question concerning the specific cultural characteristics that must be considered in providing sound health care to Mexican-Americans. The author points out that there remains the problem of the author's meandering literature review, the contributing influence of the "personal barrier," and the rather strange reference to the usefulness of the theoretical schema to other "disenfranchised populations" because the stated research question is one of cultural influences, not economic or social differences and barriers. The paper contends that Warda fails to define the specific, cultural components necessary to produce an "enabling" experience.
