At acancer workshop in Kasturba Medical Hospital here on Monday, Ibrahim advised the doctors to resolve problems rather than taking to the streets and staging protests. "Let us join hands and do good for society," he said.

Responding to several demands to curb repeated assaults from relatives of patients on doctors, he said that medical profession is sacred. "Do not create service disruption, citing trivial reasons that can be easily solved. Protesting on streets is against professional ethics," DC Ibrahim said, advising the heads of medical institutions to approach him directly in case of assaults or any inconvenience caused to them.

"You (doctors) follow professional ethics; I will provide necessary help to clear any hurdles in your path," he assured them.

On the exorbitant medical service fee charged by private hospitals/nursing homes, PI Sreevidya, chief executive officer (CEO), Dakshina Kannada zilla panchayat warned them that if they fail to display the price list of various medical services prescribed under the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments Act, they will be subject to action. Dr G K Bhat Sankabithilu, president, Indian Medical Association (IMA) said: "patients are under the impression that doctors loot them, but the reality is doctors spend lakhs of rupees on their education and choose the profession."

The doctors should be cut throat in their opinion, because life is very important never play in anybody’s life. The Hospitals have become commercials, some times even the doctors act so.

I agree assault on doctors is acrime but some doctors are careless and negligent towards the patient. They are only bothered about the bill and not patient’s health.
