The primary aim of the study was to prove that the overall quality of care is low. Does this require the methodology adopted by this paper? How about having a qualitative interviews with the providers in these settings and analysing their view points, before attempting to assess the views and experience of the patients in these settings? I am sure the physicians in PHCs in India (once you have made sure that you are not a journalist waiting to expose them in the public media) will be open enough to share their views and assessment of what they do and quality of care they provide and how to improve the quality of care they provide. I continue to feel that the overall ethical basis of this study is weak and "objectionable"... muraleedharan
