94-Year-Old Doctor’s Secret To Long Life: “You Have To Give”

Dr. James Hutchinson has been practicing medicine in his own office building in California for 64 years. That’s longer than most of us have been alive. You can only imagine what he’s seen and dealt with over the years.

As a matter of fact, as San Mateo, California’s first African American doctor, when Dr. Hutchinson bought the building, the local newspaper reported on him that said “Negro MD gets a permit,” which he describes as free advertising that he loved and still chuckles about it to this day.

“I have patients of all races, all colors, all creeds. I’ve enjoyed practicing in San Mateo,” the 94-year-old Dr. Hutchinson tells the San Franscisco Chronicle.
