Very useful article.Hope people make use of the same.Earlier family doctors believed in administrating/prescribing least amount of medicines but now family doctors/vaids and hakeems have lost their importance and with the increase in income, visiting specialists has become a fashion/status symbol. Hope the importance of good family doctors/vaids and hakeems revives.
