How to protect yourself from unethical doctors - a guide by Dr Sunil Pandya, my teacher


  • When you see a doctor for the first time pay attention to the time and effort he devotes to you. 
  • A friendly and cheerful attitude, concentration on what you are saying, the making of copious notes whilst he listens to you are encouraging findings. 
  • On the other hand, the doctor watching the second hand of his watch as he sees you, handling innumerable telephone calls whilst you are trying to narrate your woes and the termination of his consultation within minutes of your arrival are disconcerting warning signals.


  • Beware of the doctor ordering a multitude of tests after a cursory examination and of one insisting that you get them done at a particular centre.

    Another red flag is doctors who demand cash payments and do not give receipts. Doctors who are crooks are willing to cheat the government are quite likely to cheat you as well  !
