*When his 3-year-old Jakobi Nichols told his dad he wanted to be a doctor someday, Dequan Nichols bought his son the necessary toy supplies on Amazon and has been getting free medical advice ever since – the latest of which has gone viral.
In the clip, Lil Jakobi even handles patient intake. Chart in hand, he asks for the patient’s name, to which Nichols replies “Dada.” Jakobi repeats it and intently writes it down before asking the patient, “What happened?”
When Nichols tells his son he woke up with a cramp in his neck, Jakobi uses a plastic stethoscope to check his heart and gasps with the results, to the delight of nearly 20,000 viewers who have shared the video.
Nichols said of his budding physician: “He picked up everything on his own just by going to the doctor himself.” He added, “I wasn’t even going to post it until my friends told me I should. People have seen the video in India and Brazil. It’s just crazy.”
