Complaints of unavailability of specialist doctors at Civil Hospital exist no longer as super-specialists from Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) visit the hospital thrice a week. It seems the Health Department has found an easy way to overcome the shortage of doctors at Civil Hospital. Earlier, patients suffering from diseases related to kidney, liver or thyroid had to return disappointed as there were no specialists to handle such cases at Civil Hospital. Unavailability of a neurologist, cardiologist and other specialists in the hospital was giving a tough time to patients who were generally referred to other hospitals. While the hospital caters to the entire district, the number of doctors is far less than patients.
