How To Find If Your Doctor is Fake Or Not? Here’s How

With the growing number of doctors and hospitals, it has become very difficult to check and validate the authenticity of medical professionals around us. Usually, in India, we choose a Doctor on the basis of the recommendation from our friends/family or just by going through the phone directory for a clinic/hospital number. But now with the introduction of Medical Council of India (MCI) database, it has become an easy task to check the credibility of a doctor in your locality.

What is MCI?

The Medical Council of India (MCI) is a statutory body with the responsibility of establishing and maintaining high standards of medical education and recognition of medical qualifications in India. It registers doctors to practice in India, in order to protect and promote the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards in the practice of medicine.

Check out the MCI website for information regarding medical students, colleges, and medical professionals.

Indian Medical Registry Search

Indian Medical Registry Search in MCI is a section that publishes details of registered doctors with the various State Medical Councils up to the year 2015. Click here to search the database of registered doctors with the doctor’s name, qualification, registration number or registration council. There is also an option to see the list of currently blacklisted doctors.

MCI’s Medical Registry search is a powerful database which can be used by the citizens to check if a doctor is licensed or not. It can act as a centralized database for storing and updating information about new doctors and medical professionals. Let’s hope and pray that such strict regulations in place,  puts an end to the unfair practices and frauds prevailing in the healthcare industry.
