Every day about half a dozen people coming for treatment of nose, ear, throat, but due to lack of doctor, they have to return disappointed without getting treatment. Poor people from far flung areas come to the district hospital for treatment but people have to suffer a lot due to the absence of a doctor. Patients come to the hospital every day, but when they come to know that there is no nose, ear, throat doctor, then they have to return disappointed. How long will the appointment of the doctor take, the officials are also refraining from saying anything, because the issue of appointment is at the government level.
