Doctors are our superhero without capes who not only relieves physical pain but also provide us mental assistance to issues that really matter. Their resilience, patience, guts, sympathy, dedication, craft and many other qualities that put them on the high pedestal. So, we should celebrate the day to honor everything they do for us.
