St. Luke’s disowns doctor caught in viral road rage video
St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC) flatly denied any ties to the doctor who was caught shouting expletives at a motorist.
The doctor was identified by authorities as a certain Tomas Mendez.
In a video that has gone viral since Sunday night, Mendes was seen cursing and shouting at a driver of an L300 van, who appeared to be a government employee.
“We …wish to clarify that the alleged doctor, Dr. Tomas Mendez, is currently not connected with the hospital or any company that is affiliated with SLMC,” the hospital said in a statement.
“Recognized as the leading and most respected healthcare institution in the Philippines, St. Luke’s will never condone this type of behavior,” it added.
The clarification comes after the Department of Transportation sought help from the Professional Regulation Commission and the Philippine Medical Association.
