Doctors and the community
« on: January 25, 2012, 12:40:10 PM »
Now a days there is a great gap and lack of trust on doctors, we should work on it, please guys, we really need to do something, we need to create awareness via social networking an all other possible means we can, if it goes the same way as it is now, time is not far when there will be no trust on doctors, according to a recent survey, 20% of confidence and trust on doctors has been decreased in 2011 as compared to 2010..
We also need to improve ourselves..

Dear Numan You are absolutely right. No one else but the doctor community itself has to be blamed for this lost confidence. In my humble opinion the main reason for this lost confidence and respect lies in enhanced commercialism and least humanity. Doctors have to re-earn their lost respect and can regain patient's confidence through showing love for humanity and placing themselves as missionaries and not as mere apathetic businessmen.
Struggle is the sign of life & till death it must continue.

That is a very important issue.

In my opinion we should have a portal to collect all the doctors who believe the current trend in deterioration should be stopped. That portal would be like a force to exercise the integrity as well as to oppose all the negative propaganda against doctors and at the same time will guide other doctors/people to remove any missunderstandings in their scope of practice.

Any suggestions ? Please email me at azkaar@live.com
