Have you thanked your doctor today? Today, we’re recognizing our doctors, including these ones getting ready for surgery in the 1960s.

While it has been celebrated for decades, March 30 was officially designed Doctor’s Day by U.S. President George H. W. Bush in 1990 to recognize society’s gratitude to physicians and the tradition has continued ever since.

Join us in thanking our doctors for all they do!
