doctor mosque
 n.— «Many of the mosques we see in the area now started off as what I call “doctor mosques.…What has happened is that many of the Middle Eastern immigrants who came into the United States would go to larger places, a New York or a Chicago. After a while, they would tire of that and start to look for other opportunities.Some of them eventually came into Kentucky, which is their second or third move. They were looking for a place that was a bit slower, with a more peaceful, family-oriented lifestyle, which Kentucky certainly has to offer. That’s definitely part of the dynamic.» —“Community grows, thrives” by Jim Warren Herald-Leader (Lexington, Kentucky) Sept. 1, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
