The relationship between the doctor and the patient plays an important role in the treatment of the patient. But recently things have changed rapidly with the reduction in the doctor-patient ratio. Doctors are burdened to see and treat more patients, this has definitely reduced the time exchange between patient and doctor. This in turn results in malpractice and negligence.
