The Editor, Sir:
On Monday, January 14, 2013, my father went to a doctor in Stony Hill, St Andrew, as he was feeling an uneasiness in one of his legs, to the point where he was almost unable to control it.
The said doctor treated him for back pains, saying this was the cause. However, my father was not feeling any pains.
A second opinion was sought, as there was no noticeable change. EUREKA! Patient had a mild stroke in the leg.
Is the Medical Council of Jamaica licensing quacks to work in such a vital industry? Or is this just a moneymaking venture? After so-called studying and training, how often are these 'doctors' assessed?
The criminals are taking enough lives. I'm certain they need no help from doctors. Ladies and gentlemen, please stand up and do your duty thoroughly.
