Speaking with Asianet, Dr Nithin Narayanan said he likes writing and has always had a good handwriting. “My sister used to make me write in four-lined notebooks when I was a child. I love writing, so even when I write a prescription I try to write in block letters,” he was quoted as saying. “Maybe because I love to write, I write my prescriptions in block letters. The other doctors write illegibly because maybe they are busy. I try my best to write prescriptions legibly even when I’m busy. Patients often appreciate this,” he said.
