LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – There's just one doctor in Hale Center, but he gets patients from all over the earth including one person from Belgium.

That's because Dr. Jack Jordon is known far and wide as a good doctor for pilot physicals. A pilot himself, he checked out 126 pilots last year to make sure they were good to go in the sky. But that's not all that keeps him busy. "They designate certain doctors to do flight physicals, so we've got a pretty good reputation. Apparently, they come from all over to see us. And we do the truck driver's physicals too. And we hold the school physicals, football physicals and we work in a few patients in between." Dr. Jordan says in his 57-years of practicing medicine.

The oddest request came from a guy who asked if he could take the gland out of a skunk,so it wouldn't smell. He said no.
