The news about a Cebu City medical doctor who waived his professional fee for his patient is making rounds online and becoming viral on social media.
Dr. Gilbert Monicit, a surgeon at Perpetual Succour Hospital located in Lahug, Cebu City gave his early Christmas gift to his former teacher by waiving his unspecified amount of professional fee.
Virgie Robles checked out from the hospital only to get amazed when the nurse handed her a note from his doctor, who appeared to be one of his former students.
The note says “Professional Fee paid 22 years ago.”
The 64-year-old teacher thanked him for the early Christmas gift. It was definitely good karma, a perfect example of the proverb “you reap what you sow.”
The good doctor did not charge anything for his services as a surgeon.
He said it was his way of expressing gratitude to his favorite high school teacher who molded him into what he has become now.
