“Patient is Our God”

A few days back I was enlightened by the words of our Physiology professor Dr. S P Bhattacharya. One of our favourite teachers, Sir was guiding us in a practical class in his usual friendly style when he said this.

It is very wrong to think we are doing a huge favour to a patient by offering him medical treatment. On the contrary we should be happy to have the opportunity of offering our service to an ailing person. We must treat the suffering man honourably – the patient is our GOD.

I am really touched by this idea. I’ll remember this always.

  1. ডাকাত + মোক্তার = ডাক্তার হয় বলে এক প্রতিভাদীপ্ত বালক স্কুল জীবনে আমাকে শিখিয়েছিলো। সে বালক এখন একজন সফল নয়নবিদ মানে চক্ষু বিশারদ। এবং তার স্ত্রী স্ত্রী রোগ বিশেষজ্ঞ। এবং সত্যি বলতে কি, এদের দু’জনই মানুষ ও চিকিৎসক হিসেবে অতিশয় ভাল। তবে ডা. এসপি ভট্টচার্য যে কথা বলেছেন, তেমন কথা রোগীদের সর্ম্পকে (বারডেমের প্রতিষ্ঠাতা)ডা. ইব্রাহিম বলতেন বলে শুনেছি। এ কথা যদি সব ডাক্তার সাহেবরা মানতেন তবে বড়ই ভাল হত।

  2. U r right nipon.if all doctors start thinking like this then it will be great.but today many of our doctors are too busy they don’t take care of particular patient.they don’t hear to them properly.and they are so busy in many patients.they dont diagnosis also properly and don’t think much..i am telling this 4m my fathers experience about a patient who is a general physician but a very good doctor.the patient at first went to a M.D. doctor who hadn’t diagnosed properly and told he has cancer.he was very much shocked.someone told him about my father.my father diagnosed properly and gave some medicine and told he hadn’t cancer.the patient was cure very very soon.i think every doctor diagnose the patient properly and treat them as god.
