Before moving to Las Vegas, Dr. Damania was a practicing hospitalist (internal medicine doctor specializing in patients admitted to the hospital) at Stanford University for 10 years. He also has been writing and performing comedic raps as ZDoggMD, an internet celebrity known for his music videos, parodies, and comic sketches about medical issues as well as systemic issues to do with healthcare.

ZdoggMD’s work has been called “entertainment that might save your life”.  He has been labeled as “the jolliest doctor on the West Coast”,[21] and “a genuine doctor who uses YouTube as a creative outlet to teach people about things like safe sex, how to deliver bad news to patients, staying healthy on vacation and painful hemorrhoids.”[15]

His videos cover topics such as ulcers, testicular exams, Caribbean medical schools, stool transplants, overworked doctors, the role of hospitalists in medicine versus other specialists, vaccine controversies, healthcare in the US, CPR, television doctors, and being on call during the holidays.

In this video, ZdoggMD pays tribute to the nurses who keep things going in a hospital.
