Sioux City's Mayor proclaims March 29 Doctor's Day

Posted:

How often do you thank your doctors?

Now, doctors in Sioux City have a day to be recognized for their commitment to their patients.

Sioux City mayor, Bob Scott, proclaimed March 29 as Doctor's Day.

Mercy Medical Center also honored its Chief Medical Officer, Doctor Jerome Pierson for his hard work and sacrifice he endures to bring his healing touch to his patients.

"Well, actually, a lot of people think that you pay your doctor's bills, so that is thank you enough. But after most of the physicians I have the honor of working with will tell you that, simply a handshake or a pat on the back , or a thank you, or a hug, means the world to most physicians," said Dr. Pierson.

National Doctor's Day is March 30.
