Karnataka Medical Council warns doctors against online consu
At a time when more people are taking to consulting doctors online, Karnataka Medical Council has warned doctors against online consultations, terming it illegal.

“It is cardinal that online consultations are against the code of ethics since doctors need to see the patient physically and treat them clinically, which does not happen in case of online consultations. It may lead to further complications, which is nothing but playing with the life of a patient,” a release from the Council stated.

However, doctors argue that online consultations save time and follow-ups are also easier. However, KMC clarified that: “Merely because technology is advanced, it does not suffice treating patients online. Hence, it should not be executed.”

You don' t need a doctor for online consultation. anyone with a knowledge of certain medications can subscribe medicines online. Its the duty of the doctor to examine the patients first before prescribing medicines. Thats the difference between a doctor and a pharmacist who gives over the counter medications.
