Madhubabu kaaja This is downright hazardous for patients because the quack doctors are inexplicably listed as qualified physicians. This means that counter checking with the government provided system is futile because quack doctors will still appear as legitimate. It is bothering to know that the quack doctor was not even noticed until he has performed the ninth surgery. Regardless of the outcome, the eight patie...
