Doctor Turned Rapper Hopes to Revolutionize Medicine

Playing Doctor Turns Health Info into Rap Parodies

Meet the M.D. who became an M.C. and uses rap to help educate patients about important health and medical issues.

The Doctors welcome Dr. Zubin Damania, better known in the rap-medical world as ZDoggMD.

ZDogg says he’s been in love with rap and parody rap since he was in elementary school thanks to "Weird Al" Yankovic. After 5 years of practicing medicine and feeling burnt out, he adopted his alter ego to bring some humor and fun to serious medical issues and patient questions. He’s gained quite a following online, especially in the medical community, with his hilarious videos racking up close to 2 million views.

He tells The Doctors that his mission is to make videos to “educate, entertain and keep patients out of the hospital while raising the alarm that our [medical] system is way broken.” He also feels that music a great way of people to remember health facts and important information.

Beyond becoming an online star, he has used his notoriety to create a new approach to healthcare with his Turntable Health, a membership-based primary care and wellness ecosystem in Las Vegas, which is breaking down the walls between doctors and patients and hoping to revolutionize how medicine is practiced.
