Sumati had a health problem and consulted a doctor. He  advised her to go to a dermatologist. Sumati was confused, as she did not understand what the doctor said. The doctor understood the mind of his patient and told her to consult a skin specialist (dermatologist). 

Gone are the days when all persons had to take treatment for any disease from one doctor only. Those doctors used to treat all kinds of diseases then.
