An U.S. oncologist who is treating 200 cancer patients who are facing severe economic hardships during the corona epidemic has taken steps to write off a $ 650,000 cancer medical bill.
Dr. Omar Atiq, who runs a cancer treatment center in the Arkansas area of the United States, has taken this step after realizing that the patients in question are in such a state of financial decline that they are unable to pay their treatment bills.
Dr. Omar Atiq has taken this step when his cancer treatment center in Arkansas, which he has run for nearly 30 years, was closed about a year ago due to the corona epidemic.
Dr. Omar Atiq said that while working with a loan collection center to recover the amount owed by patients to his treatment center, it was revealed that the patients in question were facing severe economic hardship due to the corona epidemic.
He said he canceled about $650,000 in debt for his cancer patients. He didn’t want attention for the good deed, but he did say many patients reached out to thank him.
In a letter to patients last Christmas, Dr. Omar Atiq informed them of their decision not to charge for their donations. Dr. Atiq, who came to the United States from Pakistan, established his treatment center in the Arkansas region in 1991.Leave a comment
