How much do you make: A brief ‘essay’ from a medical professional

People are wont to asking others how much they make; well, here is a great answer from Dr. Jun Datu Ramos.

Here’s a brilliant answer to a question that people often ask those in the health and medical profession, doctors particularly.

Dr. Dimapuno A. Datu Ramos, Jr., who is also the director and media officer of the Bureau of External Relations of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF-BER) posted his answer on his Facebook page.

Maybe his brief “essay” would silence those who are wont to asking doctors how much do they make!

How much do doctors make?

Somebody asked:

“You’re a Doctor? How much do you make?”

I replied: “HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?”

I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you’re scared…

I can make your child breathe when they stop…

I can help your father survive a heart attack…

I can make myself get up at 4 a.m. to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live…
and I will work straight through until 4 a.m. to keep her alive and start the day all over again!

Stranger’s life

I work all day to save the lives of strangers…

I will drop everything and run a code blue for hours trying to keep you alive!!!

I make my family wait for dinner until
I know your family member is taken care of…

Foregoing lunch

I make myself skip lunch so that
I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today was
correct…

I work weekends and holidays and all through the night because people don’t just get sick Monday though Saturday and during normal working
hours.

Today, I might save your life.

How much do I make?

All I know is, I make a difference.

I Care, Not Just Cure (C)

Hello, Cyber World! A journalist's passion for news, which for me is every and any kind of news, but specially on Science, Technology, Innovation, Digital, and Current News, or just about anything under Heaven, birthed this news platform. Disclosure: I am not a scientist nor an expert on anything Science, and not a techie either; just some journalist who loves and care to bring the good news and share them to everyone out there. It is a big, big physical world out there, but the Industrial Revolution 4.0, the Internet in the Digital Age, has shrunk Earth into one small virtual community. Each human being a "neighbor" to everyone in the Philippines and in any point of the compass. Whatever you may see or think could be my and this site's shortcoming, my apologies. So, there, please join me in my journey in cyberspace! Be home, be safe, be mindful of your neighbors, of the Creator! Thanks so much.
