RESEARCH: HOW HEALTH CARE ADVANCEDThe quality of care has drastically transformed over the years, as well as the meaning of the quality of care of patients.

All these advancements, enhancements, and modifications have been provided to the patients in efforts to change the perception of doctors.

It is imperative that doctors must be up to date with most current techniques used in prevention and treatment to provide the best services to the patient.Though it is our duty to see everything from the patient’s perspective, but only those which are serious and right, we should always provide the most efficient professional care to the patients at all times.
