Doctors Day celebrates all those physicians that work everyday to keep their patients healthy and safe. The holiday has been celebrated on March 30th every year since 1933 when it was first celebrated in Winder, Georgia. The date was chosen to coincide with the very first usage of general anesthesia in surgery. Anesthesia has been an important medical advancement that has made surgery and other medical procedures much easier and less painful. National Doctors Day was designated a national holiday in the United States of America in 1990. You can celebrate this holiday by giving gifts to your doctors or simply sending thank you cards to let them know how grateful you are for all the work they do.
