Doctor's Day was first observed on March 30, 1933, by the Barrow County Alliance, in Winder, Georgia.

Later, the date was preferred on the anniversary of the preliminary application of general anesthesia in surgery. On 30 March 1842, Dr. Crawford Long used ether in Jefferson, Georgia, to anesthetize a patient, James Venable, and removed a tumor from his neck painlessly.
