Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A medical practitioner in the United States has added some flavour to his style of discharging his duty to patients.
The doctor named Tony Adkins is popular for always dancing with his patients whenever they come for check-up.
The 42-year-old, according to Everyday Heroes on LinkedIn, seeks to uplift the spirits of his patients through dancing.
Why he dances with his patients
According to the California-based special neurosurgeon, dancing is the best therapy.
He added that it not only improves their mood but the patient's physical condition.
Social media users sure loved his style and took to the comment section to express it.
Miguel Mojado said:
"This is a doctor who can lift the burden off your shoulders. He is also entrusted to care for the most fragile and innocent among us. Kudos for adding fun to the healing arts!"
Gary Barker reacted:
"It’s amazing when medical doctors view their care from a more wholistic approach. Understanding that our mind is powerful, our heart is fragile and our bodies often follow those leads. I’m pretty sure he is creating hope with his patients and maybe that’s the best medicine he can administer. Tony Adkins, keep dancing!!!"
Kimberly Martin wrote:
"This made my entire day! We need more highlights of genuine people. People trying to bring smiles and joy. Instead of hearing about the crash or the loss of life one the news, rewire our brains to look for the positive."
Sian Weekley remarked:
"I agree with Dr. Adkins--DANCE AND LAUGHTER! I would be much more positive about doctor/hospital visits if this was the norma!
"Maybe a new approach to daily HR life??"
