Letter to the Editor: Wrong prescription

1 week ago TPP Comments Off on Letter to the Editor: Wrong prescription

Sir,

Some of diagnostic centers in Port Blair are charging double the money for scanning and other diagnostic activities. Generally a UG Scan anywhere costs about Rs 600 to Rs 800 but some of the diagnostic centers are charging Rs. 1600 for a scan which is unethical by medical standards. One must be able to provide quality healthcare at an affordable price not exploit patients. The saddest part is that some doctors even refer their patients to these diagnostic centers and get their commission. I request you to please go the depth of this issue and nip it in the bud before healthcare becomes a luxury in Andaman.
Yours Sincerely,
Arvind Nayak
