Duke Medicine: Wednesday is National Doctor's Day

Posted March 28, 2011 7:56 p.m. EDT

I have a note that I've been meaning to send for the past 18 months.

I know it's been 18 months because that's how old my younger daughter is. And the note I need to write is to my obstetrician. My pregnancy wasn't completely uncomplicated. And I want to thank him for all he did to bring this amazing little girl into our lives.

I'm going to do it this week. And if I need any other reason other than I've waited far too long, Wednesday also is National Doctors' Day.

Duke Medicine has made it really easy to recognize a favorite doctor from Duke. There's an online form and an opportunity to tell the world what a difference your doctor made in your life by sharing your story.

Maybe it's to the doctor who delivered your baby too ... or found a new therapy ... or knew just what to do. Go to for details.
