Oncologist Omar Atik from the United States decided to make a generous gift to those patients who still owe him for treatment, and write off their debts for the New Year. We are talking about $650 thousand, which owed the Atika clinic almost 200 patients. The oncologist closed his clinic in March last year, after 29 years of work. But his former patients were left with large debts, according to Lad Bible. The doctor waited for the patients to pay off, but then realized that most of them simply do not have money. Then he conferred with his wife and decided to send everyone a Christmas card with a notice of debt cancellation.
