Dr Devakanthan, who is any ways was a saviour for the huge community in the coastal zone of Srinivasapuram has not been at his clinic here for a fortnight.
People here say he fell ill and stopped coming here.
Located at the mouth of the sprawling, congested colony off Pattinapakkam, the clinic which has been here for many years served low income families through the pandemic times, open through the evening for consultation.
Now, local residents say they have to depend on the mobile medical van of GCC that have been lately serving the area or go to a private clinic on Muthu Street, Mylapore.
