I myself lost confidence in some of the Chinese doctors. Maybe they are professionals, but there are some trying to take more money from patients' purses. Once I had a fever with headache, a doctor suggested me to do cervical puncture saying that I may get meningitis, there are few patients with the same condition, the doctor tried to persuade everyone to do the same operation. I really do not know what is going on with my condition and just followed the doctor's advice and did the test. The result turned out to be fine. I was given some pain killers and drops at the end.
