Doctor's small act of kindness comes from the heart
When traveling medical personnel arrived in the Rio Grande Valley to care for coronavirus patients, Dr. Murthy Badiga was relieved — local doctors needed the help.
So when he bumped into a few of them at Rudy's barbecue in Pharr, Badiga didn't think twice about paying for their meal.
"I live here, I practice here, my kids grew up here," said Badiga, a gastroenterologist at DHR. "I've been here for 26 years. This is my community. When somebody tries to come and help us, I think being thankful is very natural."
Badiga said the coronavirus pandemic put things in perspective.
"Be human," Badiga said. "And help your fellow human beings."
