Dear Dr. Jagesh,

Thank you for your kind comments! My goal was to cast some light on the issue without being judgemental. I’m glad to see I appear to have succeeded. Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Kamath,
Thank you so very much for your comment and insights. Your input is greatly valued. Hopefully this post shines a little light on how the problem of doctor-patient communication might be facilitated. Hopefully patients can also be encouraged to voice lingering questions and doubts instead of carrying them with them til the problem recurs. Again, many thanks.

Dear Sir,
Using the example of the “Benign” ventricular rhythms, through this blog, you have brought to the limelight the seemingly “Malignant” malady of a relentlessly deteriorating ‘doctor-patient communication’ skills, despite the so-called “recent advances” and “state-of-the-art” services on offer.Thank you for this very thought-provoking blog.
