  1. You all really think the doctor is at fault? Get a reality check. How many of your diabetics follow diet? How many alcoholics have left alcohol? How many strokes take treatment before going to the famous nagamunnollis? How many hypertensives stop medication because after 100 years there will be side effects?
    Allopathic docs in this country think they are some great God\’s. You are not. Come down to reality. Your patients are superstitious Indians.

    And yes, I\’m Allopathic a Palliative care specialist.I see day in and day out cases mismanaged either by the doctor or the patient themselves.

  2. Sad, would have been more careful during treatment.

  3. Sad news definitely!

    Is he an MBBS Doctor?

  4. IMA should launch a project to eradicate quacks(RMPs, PMPs), they should be councelled and encouraged to do other work to earn livelihood instead of doing quackery and kill people….

  5. All quacks(so called rmps, pmps) needs to be killed before they kill patients…
