The doctors are being kidnapped and harassed by extortion mafia, especially in Sindh province. This situation has persisting since a long time and created a sense of fear and unrest among the doctors fraternity. Receiving calls and SMSs in last few days has shocked the medical fraternity who is already feeling insecurity.
The participants of meeting said it seems that the government is not interested to provide security to the doctors and they feared a mass migration of medical professionals for the safety of their life.
They demand from government to provide security to all doctors otherwise a protest may be initiated which will result in increasing the suffering of poor patients, which POA as a patient friendly organization does not approve.

    dont ever go to his clinic for pelvic surgery or hip surgery. My father was admitted to his hospital. Earlier their dr’s said that the issue would be handled thru setting screw in pelvic. but when shah e azam came he told a long time taking surgery will be required in which they will place some plates and screws for which they asked a big amount (around 80k) plus at the last moments they asked for blood. On which when we offered them to take our donor’s blood
    but they refused and recommended us to pay them so they will manage the blood.

    Afterall, The surgery which was performed by khan shah e azam is failed due to his low skills about hip surgery. They charged us for plate and screw but they only inserted screws.
    we then went to akuh and consulted dr.pervez hashmi. Dr.pervez checked xrays and CT and he marked that operation as a failed operation. According to him it could have better if plate could
    inserted with screws in pelvic socket. even screws and joint was not adjusted properly.

    guys, It has happened with my father. Pls pray for my father as we know looking for next operation.

    also, dont forget to share your experiences here so others can take benefit from this forum.
