The Doctor Will See You Now..

________________

On certain streets in Delhi “doctors” ply their trade.
What they lack in qualifications is hopefully balanced by experience.
Many of the poor cannot afford to see a registered physician, so there is considerable demand for this cheaper alternative.

Alongside the doctors, unqualified dentists offer extractions and dentures.

It’s a thriving business and certainly an alternative to socialized medicine:
the logical outcome of an unregulated healthcare market.
