A local doctor is getting some national attention.

Back in February, News 12 brought you the story of Dr. Richard Jadick, an MCG doctor who went to Iraq as a Navy doctor.

Doctor Jadick is on the front cover of this week's Newsweek magazine.

In the article he talks about his experiences in Iraq.

Doctor Jadick explains how he left home only 5 days after the birth of his child.
