Mysore Medical College Alumni Association had organised a programme at its Platinum Jubilee auditorium at JK Grounds yesterday to mark Doctors’ Day.

Speaking as the chief guest, Cheluvamba Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr. B. Krishna Murthy advised the doctors to preserve the nobility of medical profession by exercising utmost patience while treating patients. He said that people once used to see divinity in a doctor which had vanished now. However he regretted that medical profession too was getting commercialised which should be viewed seriously.

Addressing the gathering, K.R. Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr. B.G. Sagar alleged that a good number of doctors were being harassed physically and mentally by the relatives of patients alleging negligence in treatment.

He observed that misconceptions and misinterpretations of a handful of anti-social elements had led to the people viewing doctors with suspicion.

Senior doctors Dr. Sheela G. Nayak, Dr. S.M. Malegowda, Dr. Mahimanjan Singh, Dr. N.M. Srinivas and Dr. B. Ramanand Kumar were felicitated on the occasion.
