Celebrity Doctor Delivers Health Message to Women's Show

He is a doctor and not to mention some ladies find him handsome.

And today he paid Savannah a visit. Hundreds of women came out to the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center for the 4th Annual Southern Women's Show and to catch a glimpse of Dr. Will Kirby.

Guess who is in town?

"I'm hoping people are receptive to my message," said Kirby.

That's right ladies, Dr. Will Kirby dropped by the convention center to meet and greet hundreds of his fans and deliver a very powerful message.

"I'm hoping I can gain awareness about people wearing their sun block and taking care of their skin," said Kirby.

Adoring fan, Teresa Harper, drove 45 minutes to be surrounded by hundreds of women who wanted to see the same thing.

"To see Dr. Will, that's the only reason I came. Everything else was just extra," said Harper.

And the clinical and cosmetic dermatologist didn't let her down.

"He was everything I thought he'd be and more," said Harper.

While she and others were busy being mesmerized by Dr. Will's personality, Donna Thompson was busy browsing.

"It's interesting to see the many businesses that are here and the many women who own those businesses and their products," said Thompson.

So many things to see and do like manicures, deep tissue massaging and checking out some of the softest mattresses on the market.

Thompson said despite all the commotion about Dr. Will, she was really here for just one reason.

"I'm a purse fanatic so I'll be checking out the pocketbook section," said Thompson.

She did just that, alongside her supportive husband, Keith Thompson.

"We do all kind of things together so it's not out of the ordinary for us to do things together," said Thompson.

And this husband was willing to back up his words helping his wife out with her purse preference.

"It's ok to come see it, it's not going to kill you. It's fun," said Thompson.

And for many, fun was an understatement.

If you haven't made it out yet for this event, you still can make it out tomorrow from 11a.m. to 5p.m. at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.
