Some people are doctors for the money, but for others it is a calling. One of these doctors is Dr Tony Adkins - a pediatric neurosurgery physician assistant.

Dr Adkins works at the Children’s Hospital of Orange Country (CHOC) in California, US, and has accurately been dubbed the "dancing doc."

The medical physician uses dance to cheer up his sick patients and adorable videos of the dance offs have gone viral.

According to News24, the dancing doc uses the technique to cheer up his young patients and to protect the “magic of childhood” regardless of their illnesses.

“Dancing with patients is important because it adds levity and joy to the hospital experiences,” he said.
