Medical Musical Comedy Parodies US Health Care

Doctors in Cyberspace

Evidently, not all physicians feel the same way about telemedicine applications and uses as I do. 

“Damaged Care” is a musical comedy about health care in America. Greg LaGana, M.D., and Barry Levy, M.D wrote and frequently perform the popular production which mocks the state of health care in the US.

This funny musical number from the comedy makes fun of telemedicine to the tune of “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story. On a more serious note, telemedicine (telephone, internet and webcam) is fast becoming an important consultation tool where doctors can confer with other experts far away to help them make a diagnosis and treat their patients.
