Karachi Doctors and Quacks

Karachi is full of quacks. They include people who apparently have medical degrees, but still end up hurting people more often than healing them. A good friend of mine, who wants to remain anonymous, has compiled a list of doctors who have good reputation (information collected through first-hand accounts). Here is the list. [Very shortly I will also put here the list of doctors you should avoid, along with their sordid tales (once again, knowledge gained from first-hand accounts.)] So, here are the good ones, along with their fields of specialization.

how can you label someone without any proven fact. you did not give a single fact of their cheating or malpractice. just writting any body name is itself a crime.
think again about your work my dear.
