A Walkthrough in the Life of Doctors

A person wearing an angelic white coat, stethoscope around his neck, listening to the pain and sufferings of the people. Isn’t that the image of you get in your mind when you think of a doctor? And when you are in utter pain, you do find a Doctor equivalent to God. A Doctor is the noblest profession of serving the entire society.

The Doctors’ day is celebrated every year on 1st July in commemoration of the birth anniversary of eminent physician and freedom fighter, Dr. B.C. Roy, and holds a special significance to the medical practitioners in India. So on this occasion, we tried to find out what some of the renowned doctors from our own udaipur wish to say about their life and profession. This article is dedicated to all the Doctors, and the would be Doctors.

Dr. N.C. Sharma, the present CEO of Geetanjali Medical College, is a very vibrant and dynamic personality. Brought up in Jaipur, he did his MBBS from SMS Medical College (Jaipur) in the year 1972 and MD (Radio diagnosis) in 1976. He manages his clinical practice with administrative affairs very efficiently.

Through his belief in discipline and team work, he was able to save the lives of four patients who went under anaphylactic shock when CT Scan procedure was done on them. Therefore, he asks the aspiring doctors to work hard in their studies so that they can give their best to their patients. He wants them to work as a team in a disciplined manner and be courteous and honest to the mankind.

When asked about the hardships he faces during his day to day clinical practice, he says that a doctor has long working hours with absolutely no time for leisure & comfort during workdays. He is answerable to patients, their relatives and the society as a whole. Despite all this he has to keep himself calm and should not lose his patience and temper.

He finds Udaipur growing very fast and very well in terms of medical facilities with two medical colleges and many hospitals in the city. But he wants that the people must respect doctors and the paramedical staff and maintain their trust in them.

Dr. Kamla Kanwrani, aged 62 years, has created a benchmark in the field of Obstetrics & Gynecology. She completed her MBBS and MD from RNT Medical College (Udaipur) in 1972 & 76 respectively. She got her FICOG degree in 1987. British government awarded her with MCH (UK) Certificate in 1992 and she even worked as IMA President for two years. She retired from RNT Medical College in 2009 as the Prof.  & HOD of Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and is presently giving her services in Geetanajli Medical College & Hospital as Prof. and H.O.D.

She has handled many critical cases very efficiently which many senior doctors have refused to treat or operate uponincluding a major surgery for removal of a uterine tumor approximately 10 kg in weight. She feels the need of introduction of Laparoscopy technique in Udaipur for the rapid diagnosis.

Cherishing her UG college life, she says to the aspiring doctors that it’s the most beautiful phase of life and they must enjoy it to their fullest. But at the same she reminds them to work hard. They must realize the dignity of this profession and should not lose their values and ethics for the sake of earning money.

She enjoys her work and gets an inner satisfaction by relieving the pain and sufferings of her patients especially of poor and needy women. Her only message to the people of Udaipur is that they must never compromise with the health of females in their families.

When the patients enter the Medicine OPD of Geetanjali Hospital, they find a doctor who is ready to help them in any possible way. He is soft spoken and easily wins the confidence of his patients. He is the Prof. and HOD of Department of Medicine, Dr. B.S. Bomb.

Motivated by his parents and religious guru to choose this profession, he did his MBBS and MD (Medicine) from RNT Medical College in 1968 and 1973. He was the former HOD of the Medicine Department in RNT Medical College & M.B. Hospital.

He takes his every case and every patient as a challenge to him. He finds that practicing in a country like India with limited resources is a major difficulty. A doctor has to keep in mind the pocket of the patient while deciding his investigatory procedure and the treatment. He also feels the need of an effective emergency treatment and critical care in Udaipur

He believes that knowledge of your field along with god’s grace and support from family is the backbone of a doctor’s success. He also feels that patient’s blessing gives much more happiness than money. He is indebted to people of Udaipur who have blessed him with their love, affection and trust.

Have you ever seen a very senior doctor singing a romantic song in front of his UG students? May be no one will believe this. But this can be true when that doctor is Dr. S.K. Luhadia, Prof. and HOD of T.B. & Chest Department of Geetanjali Medical College and Hospital. His patients have faith in him and respect him very much. For his students, he is the best teacher.

With a noble cause to serve the humanity, he did his MBBS and MD from SMS Medical College (Jaipur). He has been serving in Udaipur from past 30 years. He is also a retired Prof. and HOD of RNT Medical College.

Though unscheduled patients create lots of troubles in his day to day clinical practice, still he never loses his temper on patients. He always tries to assure & reconcile the patients who are in a state of mental turmoil. He remembers a case where a young boy swallowed a pen cap. He was suffering for 10 years, not getting any effective treatment. But Dr. S.K. Luhadia relieved him from his sufferings and pain. He feels the need of introduction of Allergy Tests in Udaipur.

Cherishing his college days, he misses the singing programmes where he used to perform. He feels sad that now-a-days meritorious students do not opt for this challenging profession which ultimately leads to distorting values and ethics in this medical profession. He asks the medical students to have patience as it takes a very long time to establish in this field as compared to others.

  8. A doctor, like anyone else who has to deal with human beings, each of them unique, cannot be a scientist; he is either, like the surgeon, a craftsman, or, like the physician and the psychologist, an artist. This means that in order to be a good doctor a man must also have a good character, that is to say, whatever weaknesses and foibles he may have, he must love his fellow human beings in the concrete and desire their good before his own……

    and u really doing grt job… 🙂
    Nice ha….

    Well ‘Tis the very truth of the saying…” A person at the time of need is the person indeed” These lines hold the same for the Doctors and the patients. Doctors spread their helping hand always to the needy & indeed they deserve the most exalted place in this world. What u say…???
