aesthetic medicine will make you richer if money is your goal.

HO MO and Reg needs it. Coz ppl dont like to share their personal number with the rest.
Any nurses doc or pharmacist or PSA can call u even if u have left the hospital. These days youngster like to switch off their work phones after office hours. Unacceptable.
I think it is only decent if a doc comes back to hosp, if he has forgotten to complete the discharge summary.

#Dedication or better still don't go back home

The very senior docs have one phone only. Coz nobody calls them haha

I think most drs have no problem with that.

But SMC also need to change. SMC set standards too high liao. Unrealistic.

Anyway, everyone needs to realize that doctors only form a component of the healthcare system. We may be big fish in the pond but we are ultimately not the pond itself. The sooner we realize that, the better we move on from old hangups about prestige or respect.

Now nobody gives *hit about doctors. They are just there to do your bidding.
