Ratings and Reviews

Care of the Muslim patient


This app is horrible. It tells not to torture or abuse your patient. It also stresses to listen and not refuse treatment. It is as if these etiquettes apply to your Muslim patients and no one else. It is as if we have to show respect to people of the Muslim faith only. Please disregard this app.

Thank you!
