Hyderabad: Thanks to the lack of proper facilities in government hospitals, unrecognized or self-styled doctors are raking in money. Due to sporadic spread of water borne diseases like cholera, diarrhea and gastroenteritis during rainy season in the state, the self-styled doctors are robbing of gullible people residing in various slum areas of their money. They have become a threat to the lives of poor people. The unrecognized or self styled doctors prescribe drugs which are banned because of their side effects.
People approaching such doctors for treatment have to say that they are forced to approach such doctors because of non availability of recognised doctors.
District administration should immediately come into action to prevent vector borne diseases in old city and take immediate measures so that poor citizens can get timely medical help.
