These as well as a unique healthcare model was pioneered by Dr Devishetty, which I want to bring to our state. The model involves charging a good amount from well to do people, which is then redistributed to poor patients. As problems related to gastroenterology have become very common, it is imperative to bring in such healthcare models.”
