“Human life is very precious, when at danger it has be in safe hands.”

To be a doctor, it needs hard work and dedication. Medical field apart from being science it is art also. To do a procedure on the living patient it needs skill. Unlike in movies, we can not have take and retakes. Doctor’s one small error can endanger patients life. To produce consistently reliable results doctors has to be accurate and also precise.

If medical field start losing its glamour, best minds may start turning away from this field in coming future.

My take on why should we love to be  love to be doctor

Today I was talking with my fellow GI surgeon Dr Aravind, in front of the hospital. Suddenly a stranger to me and also Dr Aravind appeared he greeted Dr Aravind, with great admiration. Dr Arvind was overwhelmed by his greets. but he did not know what made that man greet so dearly.

Stranger said sir, you have saved my life, I am very fortunate for that. This made Dr Aravind extremely pleased.

All is not so bad. still, have people who respect doctors. This kind of instance is not uncommon in doctor life.

A couple day ago I treated Tibetian Guru for heart block I had implanted Dual chamber pacemaker. 7 days later he came back with his followers honoured me  in Tibetan style. This is a great feeling of accomplishment for being a doctor. Now, I can say I love to be a doctor.
