I just called a local dermatological clinic after seeing their commercial on TV. No, I’m not trying to get some cutting edge skin treatment…I wanted to thank them for good grammar.
In their spot, one of their doctors said this sentence:
“Coastal Dermatology is centered on skin wellness.”
Most people get that wrong, saying “centered around” instead. You can’t center around something: it’s not physically possible, any more than you can “focus around” something. You center on something.
It may well be the only compliment they ever receive from their TV spot, but I appreciate good grammar. Even in a commercial.
