Doctors/nursing homes are looting the people hi mylot friends, In previous days people are respecting Doctor as god,because some doctors saves the lives of the patients, the doctors treat them in time with sincerity and they wish to help the patient and earn good name,but now a days I am not find this type of behavior in the doctors,most of the doctors are minting money,first the student spend lakhs of rupees for getting seat in Medical college, then the thrist for money will start to earn and compensate what they have spent for the medical seat and expenses for their studies, if the doctor is well with funds they will built a nursing home and minting money means looting the money from the patients,they never care the patient is rich or not they does not leave a single patient, even for normal delivery they are insisting that patient it is sizerian operations and collecting more money for the operation a list of medicines starting from A to Z in the list as prescription, because the medical shop also owned by the doctor, and they are insisting for blood , urine test and x ray also every where the doctor get the commission, so now the doctor profession also become thieves to rob the money from the patients, what to do?

I think deterioration of values is because now ladies are also working. Once womenfolk move out of home, it is natural that children dont learn values, and even women become money minded because they are working hard for those monies. Somewhere - the values slip. I am not saying women should not work. I am saying we need to eliminate the necessity for women to work. The best way is to bring down population. More population also brings down values because there is a demand and supply equation working. Either way, this trend is present in every profession, doctors are no exceptions. We only expect them to be more sacrificing, which is funny considering that every other profession has become corrupt to the core.

The best way is to bring down population. Though I agree 100% but I am on much lighter mood these last few days so - Lets open up a Hospital and find some doctors And yes, counsellors - okay, we are enough (I too need some extra money)

I totally agree with you Sridhar garu. We too experienced the same. My brother in law was admitted in a reputed hospital in Hyd. The problem is nothing. just he slipped a 2" pavement and fell down and became unconscious.Nearby people took him to a hospital in ambulance. but for that the hospital people looted them to the tune of 6 lakhs telling that he needs surgery, varieties of tests,xrays, scan, diet, ( which was never given to the patient but the doctors and nurses emptied in the name of the patient kept in ICU) which is not at all necessary, and put him in ICU for 15 days though he is fit for general ward. Daily every 1 hour give a big list of medicines and ask them to purchase in their medical shop and the bill cost is around 2,000/- but they will use hardly a couple of medicines and return the balance to the shop keeper in front of the patient who is in ICU. Other treatments meted out to the 80 years old brother in law should not be told in public post but it is heart rending which snuffed the life of my brother in law 1 week after his discharge from the hospital. We are all helpless as they are influencial people. so kept quiet weaping in our heart silently praying for his soul rest in peace

I find that most of the doctors I have seen care about their patients. Hopefully if you search around you will find a doctor who cares more about people than money.

I do have not a good impression of doctor.When i have a little uncomfortable of my body like have a cold or headache,i won't go hospital do a check,i will eat the medicine which the pharmacy nurse recommend to me.If doctor believe earn money is their prior aim to engage into this job, i can't trust them,and i can't imagine that situation.Medical industry is the most important part to safeguard our life,if there be filled with many evil mind person,i do can't know what to do then.

everything is mixture of elements, people is a mixture of impurities and purities. surely, i say you are also a mixture of things but you do not take on your heart. this corruption is created by own self . "doctor" is god for us but few doctor are corrupted because of him family needs. money is very important to us if we have money then we survive . money gives happy ,prestige by a society.

hello yugasini, Upon reading your topic I really felt bad,thu some doctors are still honest and never turn their back from their oaths. Yes,it really happens with other hospitals here in my country,esp those private ones that they insist the patient to have a ceasarian operation for a bigger bills and more money of course. This is really sad,and is happening and our government cannot do anything to improve the government hospital and health project for the poor ones. have a good day jaiho®

Hi Yugasini When there is a right way to make money why should not I do it This is what almost all the people think and the Docs are no exceptions. Nobility in today's world follows when you have money - at least many think that! Becoming a Doc needs loads of money and if I invest a huge amount, there must be ways to make that money come back with INTEREST. Again, the doc's children too will need more money to become doctors so the poor doc has not only to collect the expenses needed by his children but also maintain himself. All this wasnt there in earlier days... I mean in the days of the Gurus of Doctors, (when doctors were nobler) the costs of learning were lower, the people's wants were less and there was less of Industrialization. Today, almost everything is monetized and money has become a yardstick of your success.

You are 100 percent right buddy,They think about money and they want money.Doctor and nurse is no more noble profession. We have nothing to do.Government should take steps.If government enforced law,then I think there will be solution.Our social mentally is guilty for this.When a young boy or girl is going to study medical,then we told him/her that in their profession there are lots of money.From there they know that doctor is all about money.I think from the beginning we should teach them its a noble profession and you should not cheat patients.Thus can help us to get noble doctors in future.

Every respectable profession has the corrupt and the greedy. Maybe it doesn't hurt the common man that much when the corrupt person is in some other profession. But when it comes to doctors and lawyers, they sure can squeeze you a lot. But that doesn't mean every lawyer and doctor does that. Some definitely do and that's why every body connected with that profession suffer and end up having a bad reputation. That is how it is in most country I guess. I have no idea how someone can change this, because every person should realize that he has some other person's responsibilities in his hand and should help him instead of exploiting it. I do not see this happening in my lifetime and I am just in my early 20s.

I won't disagree with you. I see it almost everywhere. But I do feel bad for the genuinely good people who try to do some good to the society. They don't get recognized for their moral values and neither they reap the benefits of being selfish and greedy. People are very very selfish now a days, in any and all fields of life. Everybody is running after money. Even I am...

hi yugasini I am not in China nor in India. I am in the US and I can truthfully say my doctor is not at all like that. I am on social security and he is very careful about the medications he prescribes for me. He is not corrupt nor are the other doctors in his clinic . I know there are doctors like that but here in the U S they are in the minority really. I do not believe in herbal medications sold here in the US as they are not checked to be sure they are all the same strength. I am an American not Indian not Chinese and I trust my doctor explicitly. My insurance covers his office visits and I have never seen any of what you are talking about in the other doc tors here whom i have visited. You cannot just s ay all doctors are crooked as that just not true.I do respect the doctors here as I have always been treated fairly.And too you talk as if all tests are wrong for them to do;how on earth do you expect to have them treat you and cure you if you do not want to have tests done. they cannot just guess at what ails you so they must do some test s to find out.thats not being thieves that is being intelligent maybe in India or china they can wave a magic wand and know whats wrong but here our doctors take tests to find out so they can treat us and get us well.my god if you fell and hurt your leg badly would you not go to the doctor and would he not have your leg xrayed to be sure its not broken and if its broken he would set it and put it in a cast. I do not know what you consider is good medical practice but I like my doctor and trust him.

You are true. I think the real meaning of doctor could be devil or equivalent to something like. I think not even 1% of real doctors are around with its respective meaning. Now-a-days we can name them as doctors and never they deserve to call as doctors. They are not just looting they simply killing in both the ways. When we are in the cabin with the doctor, they will smile and talk nicely and once we are our of the place, they never realise we who are. It may be their code of conduct but utter nuisance. If we really understand what all things are happening around the hospital and such places, it is 100% shameful and feel like even shame to speak or think they way they are treating others, especially normal patients. If we talk about them, a 100 page book is not good enough to talk about them. One way it is we people paved the way for them. Also, as long as our country is so highly populated and over crowded, they don't have any scarcity for patients. What we can do is keep away from doctors by maintaining good health - that also how long? There is a limit to it and I am sure that we all are become victims of these devils one day, as we have no escape from this. However I am not blaming all doctors. There are still many doctors who are really need the appreciation and working just like the hands of God. One Dr. P. V. Jose, (my neighbor) specialised as a gynecologist, (both husband and wife are gynecologists). I need to say that they must have attended at least a million and more cases and must have got as many thanks for their dedicated service to the common people. So, there are doctors who deserve the name for it and there is a majority of people who just live and work ONLY for money and wealth. Beware of them. They are really the embodiment of devils, no doubt on it. Thank-s
