Mangaluru, Nov 20, 2018: Though Mangalore has a number of medical colleges, hundreds of medical professionals of various specializations and probably an equal number of drug shops, the need for medical facilities are not fulfilled. There are now a team of dedicated medical specialists arrived here from Pune to diagnose all difficult medical conditions and treat them too that too with a guarantee! Here we have one such mobile facility parked near Kulshekar Kaikamba whose flex print promises treatment for anything from “late marriage, sex before marriage, all diseases of ladies cured, diabites(?)( wonder - whether it is a new snack) paralysis, gases etc.”
When queried the ‘doctor’ said that he is a traditional healer! The number of jars looked to be containing all sorts of ingredients for his magic potions. He had no other explanation and could not even say what was there on the flex print! A message was playing on the PA system which no one seemed to be paying attention to! There was an intern too- a school boy- when asked as to why he was not going to school, the physician answered that it was ‘çhutti’ for schools. In the meantime the intern was busy with a smart phone probably looking up the latest in lines of treatment!
Mangaloreans will have to rush asap to avail these facilities as the hospital will be shifting in a few days according to the chief physician! We can only wonder as to what the law keepers are doing because the hospital does not seem to have any of the licenses needed and the ‘doctor’ does not even look literate! The intern was busy with a smart phone probably looking up the latest in lines of treatment!
