I always believe doctor is next to god.Doctors are messengers of god who with god orders does selfless service to man kind.
I have both bitter and happier experiences with the doctors.Before i joined my profession which involved meeting the doctors i lost my father due to negligence of a doctor, then my dad was just 50.That time i used to hate the site of doctors.And i never got a chance to visit a doctor for myself after my dad’s sudden death.
When i got an offer from Cipla I thought of rejecting because it involved meeting the doctors.But i was wrong.All doctors are not same and even a doctor is a human and all humans do mistakes.The doctor who did endoscopy on my dad was upcoming doctor and he did a mistake of handling the procedure alone without any help from the nurse and without fully equipped.I know that mistake is irreparable but it doesn’t mean that i hate doctors.I was absolutely wrong in doing so.
Had complications during my second pregnancy.And i was under the treatment of gynecologist Dr.Bhagya laxmi and my husband’s cousin Dr.Sunitha who is a anesthelogist.Once it happened that my blood pressure was not coming under control and Dr.Sunitha left her clinic and rushed me to the hospital to get me admitted.And immediately my gyne joined us in the hospital.I know this case of mine is very serious but both the doctors were so cool and joked with me and gave me some medicine to control my blood pressure.The time then was 11.00pm and both didn’t go home.Again after some test both decided to operate me at 12.00pm and my cousin didn’t leave me at all.I remember vaguely after been given anesthesia she was beside me holding my hand and running her fingers through my hair.I felt god was with him through out my operation .I am very grateful to both the doctors for their selfless service,i love you both….
I should not miss mentioning another god.He is Dr.Ramesh Reddy a paedatrician.He has a miracle touch in his hands.I took my second daughter to him when she was just a week old.He is the one doctor who encourages breast-feeding.The first thing he spoke was about breast-feeding.He gave me a book about breast feeding and gave me medicine so that I breast feed my baby properly.His clinic is always crowded,he hardly speaks but the touch is enough for the babies to get cured.He has many don’t do’s for the babies that once you will feel it is too much but believe me if that is followed the baby will be healthier.He discourages giving water to the babies till 6 months old,he says why to give water when mother can breast feed baby when ever baby is thirsty.He discourages cerelac and says my mother didn’t feed me cerelac and i won’t allow you to give your baby outside food.Prepare at home and feed the baby.He gave me a book about what food i should make for the baby after 5 months and always says breast feed the baby till she/he is 1 year old.
He doesn’t take fees from poor patient.If a child comes with fever or any other problems which can be cured at the clinic,he gives the babies to his nurses and they won’t send the patient home until the baby is better.He does charges more from the people who are well off.I always make it a point to take my kids to the this doc even though his clinic is a bit far from my place.
I take a bow to all the doctors……..
