It is common knowledge that medical practice today is slowly turning into a money spinning business and its old glory is fading. This site is a humble attempt to promote and popularize the concept of Rational Medical Practice.

Rationalism and Medicine are therefore inseparable… there cannot be and there should not be irrational medical practice. Every action of a doctor – from asking for tests to writing prescriptions – should be guided by this rational approach. Only then one can avoid unnecessary tests, unnecessary prescriptions…Only then the health care resources, particularly the drugs developed with dedicated efforts over the centuries, can be saved for the future…
To start with, the site has information on certain topics that are close to the heart of the webmaster. Physicians all over the globe are most welcome to contribute to this site and they may please contact the webmaster. Together let us popularize this concept of Rational Medicine… because that is the need of the hour!
