Hello, I am Asif Qureshi.
I am a medical doctor.
I came across your advertisement.
I have a question.
Is there a difference between crisis and a medico-legal case?
Reply: I don't know.
I will ask a counselor to reply to this question.
Asif Qureshi: How soon should I expect a response from you?
Reply: Today this is not possible.
The next day, there also was no reply.
What is the inference from this conversation?
They didn’t know the difference between crisis and a medico–legal case.
Their leaving it for the next day means it is not a genuine emergency or crisis hotline.
Are they getting remuneration from the system?
