In the United States, National Doctors’ Day is a day on which the service of physicians to the nation is recognized annually. The idea came from Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, and the date chosen was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. On March 30, 1842, in Jefferson, GeorgiaDr. Crawford Long used ether to anesthetize a patient, James Venable, and painlessly excised a tumor from his neck.
