Doctors should avoid criticizing each other
 
Every person, who has an MBBS degree, has obtained it only after he/she has secured at least 50% marks. He/she is qualified to practice medicine anywhere in India with reasonable degree of skill and knowledge required to treat all. A doctor who has scored higher, say 60% or 70%, does not mean that the one who has scored 50% has poor knowledge.
 
A patient visits a doctor to get the best advice from that doctor, who takes a decision based on the findings of the case at that point of time. No one has the right to criticize the other professional to establish their superiority in case of a difference of opinion over the diagnosis or line of management. Everyone has a right to differ.
 
General practitioners (GPs) or primary care physicians often refer their patients to specialists, when the situation demands it. The patient is referred to you because you are believed to be more knowledgeable and competent in that subject. But, having more knowledge of the subject or more competence does not mean that the doctor who referred his patient to you for specialist opinion was incompetent.
