We usually know and believe that doctors take the patients under their wings to cure them. But last Thursday I was thunderstruck by the strange, unexpected and rather rude behaviour of a doctor in Ctg. Govt Medical College Hospital. I went there with my cousin Parul, an emergency patient who was on the verge of death. I entered into the doctors' room and requested a doctor to check up my cousin. The doctor replied, ''The admission file of your patient has not come yet in my hand and so I can't check up your patient.'' After 10 minutes, when the admission file was in the doctor's hand, I again requested the doctor to check up my cousin. That time the doctor angrily said to me, ''Just go outside and I will check up your patient when it will be time.'' Further the doctor told me, ''Don't enter into my room and disturb me.'' This unexpected behaviour drove me up to the wall, but it was a bitter pill to swallow.

I just want to know when it will be time for a doctor to check up a patient in a govt hospital-- after the death of a patient or when the condition becomes worse? We often see the carelessness and irresponsible attitude of the doctors in the govt hospitals which causes extreme sufferings to the poor patients. On the contrary, in the private hospitals and doctors' chambers the rich patients get better treatment.

Where and how will the poor patients get better treatment?

We agree with the writer in toto. We also are continuously facing rude behavior from the doctors at Chittagong. We took an emergency patient a relation of ours from abroad. He developed high temperature and was having continuous loose motion and vomiting. A very senior professor doctor refused to see him in his chamber. This unexpected behaviour was a bitter pill for us to swallow also.
