Re: Doctors are human beings

Dear Sir,
We read with keen interest the thought provoking article.

The society has to be considerate and understanding. the doctor is
ready to come not half way, even the 90 steps forward, rather 99 steps.
Society has to come forward at least 1 step.

It is not yet known the enigma of life. So to praise or blame
everything to a doctor is only too superficial.
