Doctors’ associations warn against fake doctors
28 August 2011
The Junior Doctors Association and the South African Medical Association have welcomed Johannesburg Metro Police’s arrest of a bogus doctor who promised to enlarge men’s private parts.
The two associations say it is distressing that there are more bogus doctors on a rampage in many parts of the country such.
Bogus doctors have been identified in places such as Limpopo, the Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga and Kwazulu-Natal.
They warn that legitimate doctors often have to deal with the repercussions of quackery inflicted on unsuspecting and often desperate civilians.
