Some of TV’s Best Fake Doctors Are Back to Get You to See a Real Doctor

Cigna unites McDreamy, Hawkeye, Turk and more

Four decades' worth of TV's top doctors are finally sharing the same screen. The bad news is, it's an ad. But the good news is, the ad's pretty good.

To encourage you to get an annual check-up from a real doctor, Cigna brought together an all-star team of fake doctors.

We've got Alan Alda (MASH's Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce), Patrick Dempsey (Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd of Grey's Anatomy), Donald Faison (Scrubs' Christopher Turk), Noah Wyle (ER's John Carter) and Lisa Edelstein (House's Lisa Cuddy).

The "I'm not a real doctor, but I play one on TV" shtick has been milked plenty of times before, but if you've been a lifelong medical TV fan, this one will probably give you a healthy dose of nostalgia.
