Z DoggMD On Television Doctors

Don't run afoul of Z Dogg MD as a celebrity TV doc or you may get a dose of reality.

 

Every now and then, like most other A-list celebrities, I get recognized in public by strangers. The latest occurrence was in the echo lab in our hospital. A tech, whom I had never seen or met before, asked me what my next video was going to be about. Delighted, I introduced myself formally, puffed out my chest, slicked back my three remaining hairs, and proudly proclaimed that I would be ripping “America’s Doctor” a new one. “That’s right,” I effused. “I’m doing a Doctor Oz dis rap. He’s about to get SERVED! Boo-ya! What WHAT? Whoop, there it is! Oh no he didn’t!”

It immediately became so quiet in the room, I swore I could hear the ultrasonic echo waves daintily reflecting off the nearby patient’s calcific mitral annulus.

The female technician’s shriek pierced the silence. “What?! Why would you insult a national treasure like Dr. Oz? He’s taller, smarter, better looking, and infinitely more successful thanyou! Plus he doesn’t come in here EACH DAY, bragging about the ‘off-the-chain’ videos he’s been desperately foisting out on YouTube, only to come back the next day and introduce himself again like he’s never met me. You are a sad little man!”

I casually grabbed a couple of day-old bagels and ambled towards the door, tripping over the echo machine power cord along the way.

Why dis Dr. Oz, indeed?

Let’s enumerate:

  • He’s taller, smarter, better looking, and infinitely more successful than me. He must therefore be stopped.
  • He may have started out with good intentions, but his current incarnation foists hype, pseudoscience, and unproven “alternative” treatments upon millions of unsuspecting Americans who believe that his is the final word. After all, he has been duly annointed by She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named! (Oprah)
  • Every practicing doctor dreads hearing these words from their patients: “But Dr. Oz says…” See here my informal Facebook poll of Dr. Oz tomfoolery. Better yet, my favorite medical journal, The National Enquirer, agrees!
  • Dissing Doctor Oz will inevitably lead to an East Coast-West Coast rap beef of epic proportions, resulting in untold publicity for both parties. Win-Win! Although I am likely to die in a drive-by syringe attack.

So it’s time to bust a cap in the Oprah-Industrial-Complex. The backing music track comes from the BRILLIANT Professor Elemental song Fighting Trousers, with music by Tom Caruana. I kinda “borrowed” this track without permission but I’m hoping that the imitation will be taken as the intended flattery. I would not want the good Professor to don his Lawsuit Trousers.

I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with this video! Delivery, lyrical content, comedic timing... Z Dogg MD's on point!

Honestly? I have seen quite a few episodes of Dr. Oz when he showcases a laser or aesthetic device and operates it improperly then discounts its efficacy. I can think of one episode in particular he did on the VelaShape. Not only did he use the V-Smooth head on a small woman's forearm, he didn't know how to operate the VelaShape in the first place, the parameter settings, or the treatment regimen. It was so bad that I wrote into the show and requested that in the future, he have an expert on the show who knows how to properly describe and use the device being showcased.

I think the worst description of an aesthetic procedure was that of laser lipolysis. It was so wrong in every way.

Let's just say I'm no longer a fan or have any true faith in what he tells his listeners/viewers.
