    A set of useless doctors who act purely on jealousy of others getting a same medical degree as they are... They think others don't deserve to be doctors. Wake up and see other countries and their educational system....

    Prosecute big mouthed SAITM boss Neville Fdo for employing errant doctors. Screen the qualifications of all SAITM doctors and physicians who call themselves doctors,including Ananda Samarasekera.

    Please report on all those who practice medicine mostly in outstation areas of SL without SLMC registration. If not singling one person at this stage, implies that it is done with malice and jealousy.
