In my last posting,
there were comments condemning the doctors such as this,
For all that, I would like to reproduce this post which I did almost a year ago so that you all may not think too harshly of our doctors,
Please give the good doctor what he wants

I met a handsome doctor, who is a neurosurgeon the other day.
He has a practice at one of the private hospitals in Malacca.
The neurosurgeon used to work for many years at several government hospitals.
He left to set up his own practice because of reasons I'm not at liberty to disclose here.
He nonetheless told me that he loves working in a government hospital because he get to save more lives there.
Despite the lower income compared to having his own private practice, he enjoyed having more patients at the big hospitals.
"Many of those patients can't afford to go to private hospitals, so I think I can do more good in a government hospital," he said.
The guy said he had recently volunteered to perform surgeries at a government hospital.
The problem is that the hospital doesn't have proper
equipment necessary for him to perform those surgeries.
The hospital had since applied to the Health Ministry for an allocation to purchase the equipment.
The guy appeared quite excited at the prospect of being able to help out at the hospital.
"They don't even have to pay me. Just get the equipment and I will do my best in the OT (operation theater)," he said.
I hope one of the big shots at the Health Ministry will read this and help out to get the budget for the hospital to get the equipment needed by the neurosurgeon.
Please check which hospital in Malacca had recently applied for the equipment.
I don't want to give too many details here as i don't want the neurosurgeon to get in trouble for telling me all these.
Just imagine how many lives could be saved if the guy can help out at the hospital.
All those poor patients can get faster treatment.
The neurosurgeon told me the needed equipment could costs less than RM100,000.
I don't think that's too expensive considering the benefits which could be derived from it.
To the Health Ministry people who read this and willing to help, thank you very much.
Hopefully, the hospital can have the equipment as soon as possible.
|The neurosurgeon performing a surgery. The guy is very good with his work.|
I hope the whole thing will not discourage him from trying to help the less well-off patients at the government hospitals.
Well, saving lives is not easy after all.
There are people who don't even want to appreciate it.
By the way, I'm still down with my ailment and writing this in bed.
Feeling a bit down, actually.
Hopefully I'll be okay again in the next few days.
You all take care ya.
I forwarded a question by Gladiator, who is a regular commentator of this blog about what happened to the craniotomy equipment requested for the use of the neurosurgeon and this is the wassap reply from the good doctor,
