Dr. Sanjeev K. Singh, Medical Superintendent at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences shares his experience being a Doctor. With focus on advancement in medical technology, communication between doctor and patient has weakened. Many doctors in today's "hi-tech" care and modern medicine have forgotten "high touch" care. Spending enough time with patients and their family members and listening to their concerns are important. In the race to become big and well-known, many medical practitioners take to unethical or shortcut practices, which is a cause of concern. I believe there is a lack of great role models for younger generation to imbibe the culture of dedication and commitment. Teaching and efforts towards training medical students or colleagues, and to share best practices and skill sets, are diminishing. Kickback practices are eroding ethical delivery of medicine today. What is needed is the practice of value-based medicine, cost-effective medicine and comprehensive care medicine.
