42-year-old neurosurgery physician Tony Adkins from California really believes in the old said phrase “laughter is the best medicine.” Dr Tony believes his foremost duty is to heal his patients and relieve them from pain for which he has come with a unique concept.
Army veteran Adkins dance with patients at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County to cheer them and bring a smile on their faces because he believes “smiling is more powerful than some medication.”
He says it’s a way to make his young patients feel like kids again.
Many ask him to bust a move when he visits their rooms. Nurses say Adkins lights up every room he walks in, and kids that haven’t smiled in days suddenly start smiling.
He first broke out his moves in an attempt to cheer up one of his patients post-op. Now, he’s said it’s a key part of the recovery process.
