Your doctor may be playing medical video games at work. That could be good for your health

Can playing video games be a prescription for good health?

Dr. Zubin Damania thinks so.

Two to three times a week, the UCSF/Stanford-trained internist and founder of the Turntable Health primary care clinic, is on his smartphone playing video games.

Damania isn’t seeking a diversion by parachuting into a “Fortnite” battle royale.

Instead, ZDoggMD, as he’s known by his pseudonym as a producer of healthcare videos and live shows, is among the 400,000 medical professionals practicing the craft of medicine through a series of games from Level Ex, a Chicago videogames developer whose titles are specially designed for doctors, med students and other healthcare providers.
