     We tried to see the level of confidence in doctors from different systems of medicines on their respective systems. Our findings were eye-opening. Here we share the same with you. Kindly note that we are presenting here whatever we observed and that we do not have any intention to hurt anybody’s feelings. If such a thing happens, we beg excuse. 

Barring a few, almost all of the allopathic doctors were full of confidence on modern medicine. They took pride in being an alloptahic doctor. They were proud of their science. They had all respect for what was being or has been taught to them, despite being aware of the fact that what was being regarded true today, could be discarded, tomorrow. They had respect for their scientists, teachers, and res
earchers. They had the self-confidence that whatever they do was the best. They did accept that there were lacunae in modern medicine, but they were not ashamed of it. They strongly believed that may be tomorrow they may get what they don't possess, today. They wanted to know and use ayurvedic medicines, but they didn't seem to be too enthusiastic (as if dying) for them.

Majority of the homeopathic doctors had a lot of confidence on homeopathy. They took pride in their science. They had all respect for the founders of homeopathy. They believed strongly that homeopathy has a great role to play in delivering health care to the ailing people. They knew their medicines were not too strong, even then they believed that these do work. They did not want to use allopathic and ayurvedic medicines.

Majority of the ayurvedic doctors had little or no confidence on ayurveda. They felt ashamed of being ayurvedic doctors. They did not like to be called a vaidya. They had little respect for their science. Rather, we saw many of them making mockery of what has been written in ayurveda. They derided their teachers. They discarded the principles and practices of ayurveda. They took pride in using allopathic medicines. For this they used the alibi of providing the required health care to the patient (allopathy). They saw no future of ayurveda. Given a chance they would be the first to remove ayurveda tagged with their names. Only a few ayurveda docs loved and respected ayurveda, took pride in being an ayurvedic doc/vaidya, practiced pure ayurveda, used ayurvedic medicines, believed that ayurveda has a definite role to play in delivering health care in modern times, and that ayurveda has a great future.

(Chikitsa Patraka)

Prescription writing is an art. It is an important document that if written properly, contains a lot of vital information about the disease, diagnosis, and the treatment advsied to the patient. You need to master the art of prescription writing. Here are several important suggestions - 

1. Name of the patient (Naam);
2. Age/sex of the patient (Vayas/Linga);
3. Place to which the belongs (Desha);
4. Complaints (Vedna);
5. The findings on general physical examination (Samanya Pariksha);
6. The findings on systemic examination (Srotas Pariksha);
7. Brief record of the investigation reports (Vishesha Pariksha);
8. The treatment the patient is undergoing/has undergone (Purva/Vartaman Chikitsa);
9. Any medicine(s) to which the patient is sensitive (Asatmya);
10. Provisional/Final Diagnosis (Nidana);
11. The treatment advised (Chikitsa); and
12. The do's and don'ts for the patient (Pathya-apathya).

1. Be systematic while recording all the points mentioned above.
2. Write clearly that the patient, his attendants, chemist, etc. can read easily.
3. Be brief and to the point. Avoid going into unwanted detail.
4. Your prescription pad should have all the necessary information about your name, degree(s), the clinic address, the clinic timings, the closing days, etc.
