A write-up in a Chinese Daily in the last week of January 2013 written by Mr. Joaquin Sy regarding my lecture in the Department of Tourism (TIEZA) on Breast Cancer last January 19, 2013.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++As an offshoot of the write-up, as of February 5, 2013, I got 2 feedback from two Chinese readers.
One was a patient of mine since 1999 who has been having check-up with me after I saved her from a breast operation. She saw me on February 2, 2013. She liked the article on me and affirmed what Joaquin wrote about me being a compassionate person.
I met the second reader who interacted with me on February 5, 2013. At about 23o pm, I received a telephone call from the Emergency Room of Manila Doctors Hospital telling me there was a patient with the name of V. Lee, 70-year-old Chinese, looking for me and did not want anybody to touch him except me. When I went down to the ER, I saw a patient having an asthmatic attack. I had not met him before. He showed me the newspaper clipping on the write-up to tell me how he got my name and why he was looking for me. He is living in a slum in Makati and is financially incapacitated. He used to work with a Chinese daily. The write-up on my being a compassionate physician who has helped a lot of underprivileged people prompted him to come to MDH to seek my help. Even though asthma is not my specialty, I helped him with the ER staff and financial counselor. He was discharged after control of his asthmatic attack.
