Doctors are considered to be the visible Gods. Nowadays, medical profession has become commercialized. Doctors adopt deceitful practices so as to attract the innocent patients and thereby collect money in huge amounts. The State has undertaken lot of responsibilities to prevent these practices. For that purpose, they were brought under The Consumer Protection Act, 1986. Now they are subject to the jurisdiction of Consumer Forums in case of their negligent acts. So learned members of this noble profession themselves suggest some effective measures at their own level to check malpractices so that professional dignity is not put at stake. Stagnation in continuing education should be broken and we should wake up to the realities.
