Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor". I feel sorry for you as the system has not worked well. In fact many peop le from developed countries like US and UK face the similar problem where health is a state responsibility. Unfortunately, nothing much can be done. You can bring it to the notice of the senior managers of health service in your area. Further, a legal procedure can be planned. As far as your meds are concerned, you will have to get it from the same doctor as of now. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you in future. Wish you good health!
