While you give us plenty of reasons to celebrate throughout the year, today is National Doctors’ Day! Held every year on March 30th, National Doctors’ Day is a day to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve our country by caring for our citizens.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to patient care, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. In these uncertain times, please know that we are grateful for your hard work, commitment, and dedication.
It is truly an honor to be the largest and most trusted physiatry group in the nation, and even more so because we’ve achieved this by maintaining our core values; to build a transparent, honest practice focused on our patients and providers.
Thank you for being part of our IRC family.

P.S. Did you know that Doctors’ Day started in 1933 in Georgia when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians by mailing them greeting cards and placing flowers on the graves of deceased doctors? In 1958, a Resolution Commemorating Doctors’ Day was adopted by the United States House of Representatives. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a National Doctors’ Day. Following overwhelming approval by the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, on October 30th, 1990, President George Bush signed into law designating March 30th “National Doctors’ Day.”
