He hails from Thrissur’s Padiyur. He earned his MBBS from Thrissur Medical College and his MD from the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER).
Internet memes joke, that aside from the pharmacist, no one else can read what most doctors have written on their prescriptions.
A photo of a doctor’s penmanship has gone viral on social media.
His flawless block letters penmanship started receiving praise. A prescription writing that does not exceed 2 minutes is written in a way that the patient, bystander, and pharmacist can understand.

Dr. Nithin said that he tries to uphold the same standards of writing used by pharmacists when writing prescriptions.
“Pharmacists must be used to many types of handwriting and mine would also be the same for them,” he told Asianet in a media interview.
Dr. Nithin has inculcated the art of neat handwriting in his patients by writing prescriptions legibly.
I write my prescriptions in block letters because maybe they are busy. Patients often appreciate this, he told BBC Hindi’s Rajyamachariya.
