Try putting some information in your post and any comments about it instead of just posting some link.

I don’t see any link in my post; just where to get the information. Do take the pain to differentiate a thread’s first post from a normal reply post.

Ask to your Doc

I appologise for not following the manners of posting a thread.

My point is that doctors prefer to write their prescription and do not leave a copy in their files. Upon followup visits they ask patients to bring all the previous records. Instead of this they should use computers and keep record of every single thing they suggest. I know that they keep record of their findings in their files but they should use this practice for prescriptions as well.

Mind you this manual practice is being followed in the best hospitals of Karachi as well.

May leave a copy…using carbon paper placed underneath original while writing.
