I've been hearing from relatives in Pakistan that doctors (GPs) practicing in Pakistan do no make much of a living. Is it true that their pay is bad, like 30 rupees per patient? I can't belive that, but want a reliable answer. I was under the impression that they are well paid. A GP in the UK makes £60,000 (about 6,000,000 rupees) per year, surely it should be the same amount in Pakistan.

In US they make even more $. I'd say around 150K to 200K.

Actually they make about the same as UK docs, £ are twice the worth as $ that's why it seems like usa GPs make more.

I hope so. What is the typical amount paid for a visit to the GP (for a general check-up)?

The govt doctors dont earn much yes. But they all do private practice and they get some good money from it. iv got two doc sisters and when they were in Pakistan, they were doing fine even with lil experience.

Private fees ranges from 100 Rs to 2000 Rs per session.

doctors ki baat aur main hi nahin


Pakistan main docs ki salary Govt lecel per kam hain
aik banda jo 5 saal parhay do saal house job kray tab bhi sirf MBBS ho specialization kay liye to studies alag hain
u know oos ki salary yahan ziada say ziada 6 say 8 hazar hoti hai
so khud hi soch aik family wala banda jis nay itni mehnat ki ho itnay salon baad oos ki income yeh hai?

so docs pvt practice kertay hain
majbooran kamanay kay liye
tab hi govt hospital main oon ka behaviour patients kay saath rude hota hai
bcz woh zehni sakoon main nahin hotay apni income ki wajha say
aur kaam ziada hota hai kernay ko (yeh mra khayal hai)

pvt hospitals main docs ki fee 500 say stary hoti hai hr visit per
medicines ka kharch alag hai

ok main apnay zareen khayalaat ka izhaar aindaa keroon gi aur bhi abhi zara jaldi hai


and SHAH
aindaa docs kay baray main apnay kisi aik buray experience ki base per aisi baat na kehna plz

Well Everyone is different. But in my hometown there is one paki doctor. And she has been nothing but trouble for my fmaily. She doesnt know what shes doing...she doesnt understand. And everytime my family has to go to the doctor...she makes things worse than better.

family as in extended fammily. My immediate family knows better than to go to her.


but IM not saying pakistani doctors are bad or snything. Just this one lady. Otherwise depends on the peronality of the doctor and how dedicated they are to their job and helping others. Im sure there are many good paki docs out there.

SRK look at your hand, are all fingers the same size? I bet not!

Not all docs are bad nor all are good.

Free med and treatment: Where does't it happen? there's no such thing as free. Someone pays for it either in cash, lost time or wages, or donation....

Government provided health care is the most inefficient way of providing health care to the poor. In Pak, many times, housing schemes, health schemes... have been tried for poos but rich and corrupt people devoured those impesonating as poor and destitute.

In a society, where honest people starve and dishonesty is standard, more government means greater corruption.

Doctors come from same society, they were raised to become money making machines - "respect in the society is for those who have money"....yet there are some who are dedicated. Making earnings is not wrong but that becoming the focus of anyone's profession is wrong.

Docs bad behavior in govt hospitals is not acceptable. They is no good reason for them to be rude to patients if they are getting low pay. They accepted to work for low pay knowingly.

Such behaviors are represntative of how corrupt our society is where people in the noblest of profession are dishonest to their customers whose lives are dependent on them.

yet there are doctors who are very well to do and known as experts in their field perform free services to poor. Again all are not the same.

I m agreed with the comments u have passed above....

nad its true..aik kerwai talkh haqeeqat hai ....itna arsa perhna phir us per yeh sab hona ...

i m one of them jin k saath aise problems hochuki hain ..

per aik baat kahoongi taali do hathon se bajti hai ...jitna treatment man aik doctor ka haath hota hai utna hi patient ka bhi ..

kehtay haina k doc aur lawyer se kuch nahi chupana chahiay ...hamaray han bara masla yeh hai k hum log ..apna merz apni takleef sahi tarah nahi batatay hain ...secondly..bahout se symptoms aik doosray se itnay match kertay hain k hum log khudi doc ban jatay hain ...aurthird yeh k ager aap kisi doc se consult bhi kertay hain to aap ko ager aik khoorak se faidah huta hai to ..jab wohi takleef dobarah ho ..buna sochay bina check up kiay aap wohi dawa khaletay hain..bina murz ki noiyat janay ...yahan dushmani to hum khud ker rahay hotay hain

aur doc bhi aik insaan hi hai ....her baat ka aik hi pehlo nahi dekhna chahiay ...try to see the other portion of tha matter ..

she is saying coz she is doctor thats it
Posted 14 Sep 2005

...and you are saying things against docs because you are not a doctor - everybody has a bias. Learn the art of separating issues from persons. We do or don't listen to a person for what he/she has to say and how much substance it carries, and not judge by who that person is.
