National Doctors Day

Originally on March 30th, 1933, the first annual National Doctors Day was celebrated by mailing greeting cards to physicians and putting flowers on the graves of deceased doctors. Today, it's a holiday which gets far less recognition than it should. In many cases, that's probably because many physicians have to work harder every year to see more patients, and continue struggling to bring in the revenue they need to sustain their practice financially. Most physicians can't spend the time they would like to with their patients.

As challenging as practicing medicine today is, there are still physicians that amaze patients with their compassion, expertise, respect, understanding, honesty, humanity, competence, and commitment.

If you've ever had a doctor that just went above and beyond for you, find a way to thank them!
