“The phenomenon of misrepresentation, especially when it comes to our profession, has existed for a very long time and I think we should all appeal to the citizens to always check on the website of the Medical Chamber whether these doctors are licensed or licensed. in the last resort, they can also check in the APR whether the health institution they are going to is registered and for what it is registered, and take care of that, “points out Dr. Milan Dinić, president of the Medical Chamber of Serbia.

“If I can say inhumane crime, all crimes are inhumane, but here we are literally making money on the inability of people who are sick and who are holding on to a straw. These people, it often happens, do not report such crimes, because they themselves feel ashamed of being tricked into trusting someone they shouldn’t have trusted, “Bajovic said.

“The minimum education to become a doctor lasts six years and if we assume that it is at the age of 18, you have to be at least 24 years old to complete medicine, specializations last from three to six years, usually four, after that possibly subspecialization for another year. or two, so you can’t become a specialist doctor some 27, 28 years ago “, emphasizes Dinić.
