When the flight crew from Delta flight 1827 needed a doctor, they got one: The “nation’s doctor.”

On Wednesday, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams tweeted that Delta staff on his flight asked if there was a doctor on board to assist in a medical emergency.

“Why yes — yes there was,” he recounted in the tweet, adding: “Like a good USPHS officer, I was glad to be able to assist!”

Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter said in an email that “prior to takeoff, Delta flight 1827 from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta returned to the gate following a customer illness. Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer.”
