Meet Dr. Zizmor, If You Haven't Already

Meet Dr. Zizmor, If You Haven't Already

If you're a New Yorker, then you must be familiar with Dr. Jonathan Zizmor, the board-certified dermatologist. For three decades, he's been advertising his skin-saving services in a series of shiny, cheery subway ads. Of course, it hasn't all been rainbows for Dr. Z — his license was suspended for three years. He's back in business, though, and his advertising is just as trippy as ever:

Seeing this commercial wouldn't push me to make an appointment, but clearly his advertising has paid off. Celebrity dermatologists like Dr. Brandt and Dr. Gross might draw the A-list names, but there's hardly a New Yorker who doesn't know of Dr. Z. Would seeing his ad make you pick up the phone, or are you wary of doctors who advertise their services?

LOL. I grew up seeing this guy on the train. "Now you can have clear, beautiful skin". I never went to him though, even when I had acne.

Ha! I see his ads on the subway practically every day. I can think of many things I'd rather look at. I am definitely wary of going to a doctor that not only advertises, but advertises with rainbows and crappy cartoonery.

I grew up watching the Dr. Zizmor ads. I find it hilarious that they haven't changed since I was little.

i hate doctors who advertise. are they not good enough to get clients by word of mouth?

I think I would avoid a doctor of any sort with an ad like this. It doesn't come across as very professional.

OMG! I haven't seen one of his commercials since I was in college. This ad wouldn't make me call him though. I went to a "celebrity" dermo her in Philly that a friend highly recommended and I was NOT impressed by her at all. Manners were not present and when I went for my follow up she claimed I did not follow her directions and then did one of those hoity-toity snickers. Whenever I see her product line in Sephora I cringe.

Maybe this guy should have changed states or something. Is anyone in NY really going to go to him anymore?? Not sure why anyone went in the first place but really??
