Only pharmacists understand that a doctor’s handwriting is an unspoken fact. Maybe that’s why a doctor’s prescription has gone viral. The Kerala doctor identified as Dr Nithin Narayanan rose to popularity when a picture of his prescription went viral on social media. Nitin told Asianet that he loved to write and had good handwriting since he was a kid.
Nitin said he tried to maintain the same by writing prescriptions. When asked if pharmacists find his handwriting easier to read, he added: “Pharmacists must be used to many types of handwriting and mine would be the same for them as well.”
The Keralite doctor said he was aware of complaints about doctors’ illegible handwriting. “I write my prescriptions in block letters. Other doctors write illegibly because they may be busy. I do my best to write prescriptions legibly even when I’m busy. Patients often appreciate that,” did he declare.
According to a report, Nithin Narayanan received his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) from Thrissur Medical College and his Doctor of Medicine from Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER).
