Celebrating Our Physicians on National Doctors’ Day

 

National Doctors’ Day is a lot of things. It’s a celebration of those who have sacrificed more than most of us probably realize to help make us healthier, stronger and less afraid of living life to the fullest. It’s a reminder that we have someone close by that has put in the hours, to sometimes miss family engagements and has worked through countless nights for no other reason than to help make us all better again. Perhaps most importantly, it’s an opportunity to say “Thanks.”

National Doctors’ Day is a lot of things, but it’s not about praising physicians for accomplishing the miraculous. It’s about showing our appreciation for their day-to-day. It’s about offering a small gesture that can send ripples through a community dedicated to helping others. So on this National Doctors’ Day, send a simple card to show your appreciation, or give a heartfelt “Thank you for doing what you do” to the doctor(s) in your life. Learn more about National Doctors’ Day, and let us know how you plan to celebrate this year!

This year DaVita Stories is celebrating National Doctors’ Day by sharing photos of some of our doctors from medical school or their residency programs and some insight into why they became physicians and their favorite part of caring for patients. Check it out below.
