|Dr. Noel J. Lacsamana|
The second time I tuned in to the program, Dr. Lacsamana greeted some of his friends who to my surprise are also my friends. Learning that we have common friends I became curious who this doctor is.
A week ago, my good friend Ric Umali, a rotarian and the incoming president of Don Bosco High School-San Fernando mentioned that Dr. Lacsamana is an alumnus of Don Bosco and a friend. I realized that it was my "cabalen" connection as the reason why I have common friends with the good doctor. A case of "six degrees of separation"*.
I found out that Dr. Lacsamana is a very popular eye doctor based in San Fernando, Pampanga. He studied at the Ateneo as a scholar, and took his medical degree at the Fatima School of Medicine.
He founded the International Eye Center**.
The few times I listened to his program, a lot of people and patients only have good words for him, not only for his skills as an eye doctor but also his being a good person.
But what really impressed me about the good doctor was learning of his giving free treatment to indigent patients on a regular basis. He said that it was his way of paying back to the society for the good fortune and blessing he has received. A good eye doctor indeed.
*"Six degrees of separation refers to the idea that everyone is on average approximately six steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of, "a friend of a friend" statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer."
