Doctor, surgeon band make song asking people to ‘stay at home, help the doctor’

HOUSTON – A doctor is raising awareness about the coronavirus pandemic through the power of music.

Dr. Phuong Nguyen works at Children’s Memorial Hermann and at UT Health. He is a pediatric plastic surgeon. He is also the lead singer of his virtual band, “Help the Doctor," that is comprised of other surgeons from around the country.

Nguyen created a song called “Stay Home" as a public service announcement and it’s now going viral on social media.

“I wrote this song to help remind everybody that please socially distance. Stay home and stay safe. We can really use your help,” Nguyen said.

The band got together virtually to record the song.

“We do know that this makes a difference,” Nguyen said. “Staying socially distant makes a difference a huge difference and I can’t stress enough the biggest problem of everybody gets sick at the same time that causes a catastrophe.”

At the end of the song, Nguyen shares a link urging people to donate personal protective equipment to healthcare workers if they can. You can visit that page to donate PPE here.
