Popular started its journey as diagnostic centre in June 1983 with a Promise to render the possible standard service to the people of the country at an affordable cost and in turn to limit the outflow of the patient abroad at the expense of heard earn foreign currency. When I started working in pathology department of Dhaka Medical College Hospital, I saw that thousands of people of our country are going to abroad every year only for treatment. The country was losing millions of taka worth foreign currency. That time I felt, as a Doctor I must do something about it. I had the spirit but didn't have the resources. From that inspiration I started Popular Diagnostic.
