    Better not to have doctors, because they are looters. Everyone should diagnose and treat him self.

  4. Thanx 2 our Netas who own the majority, if not all d medical colleges and fund their funds from their corrupt money by donations. Why do you blame doctors now? Nobody in India looks at the root cause but cry for fire on seeing the smoke. Shame on such a decrepit society.

    Unbelievable. I am sure he must be a quack. North India is full of such quacks. The fact that the Govt is allowing them to be called as doctors is the greatest crime against doctors. With NMC such cases will increase.They pay Rs 500 and get registered as medical practitioners. Because of this nuisance public at large have lost respect for genuine doctors .This is another feather in their cap.

  7. Doctors nowadays have target to bill and loot patients with unnecessary treatments and medicines. Now, putting the same into practice in a different field of expertise. well done.

  8. Y unbelievable? With donation money paid by guardians to produce such criminal so called doctors, \”What can one expect\”? Blame the lawmakers of this country where only a dynasty matters? Patel abolished 565 Kingdoms but Nehru re-established one Kingdom.

  9. Doctors are paid heavy fees to get the degree and once get the degree they think to recollect the payed money in hook or crook. Govt to be find out a solution to the fees exorbitant collected by the medical colleges and deemed university to be controlled by genuine fees and bribes and partiality to be avoided. One india and one fees and one syllabus teaching in all colleges.
