When Patrick graduated from medical school, his dad appeared on "Wheel of Fortune" and talked about his kid's accomplishment.

“Do you mind if I do a little parental bragging here?” he said to his co-host Vanna White. “So you know my son, Patrick, you’ve known him all his life. Well, he’s made it through medical school, and he is now officially Dr. Sajak, and we’re all thrilled about that.”

“The only troubling part is he insists that I call him Dr. Sajak,” Pat Sajak joked, before getting serious again.

“Lesly and I couldn’t be prouder, and I tried to get him into geriatrics, but he refused, but that’s a personal thing," he laughed. "Anyway, congratulations, son.”

Patrick Sajak's little sister, Maggie Sajak, also congratulated him on Instagram.

"My big brother officially became a doctor today, and I am the MOST proud," she captioned a post of them together. "Congrats @patricksajak, MD!!!"
