Funny (Real) Doctors’ Names

Funny Doctor Names and Specialty Jokes

OK. I’ve been compiling a list of funny doctors’ names. Yesterday I asked the help of some of my tweeps (friends on Twitter), so the list grew. The list is divided into three: (1) Interesting or kinda cool, (2) Specialty-name matches that are either funny or scary (especially those damn urologists), and (3) The No-Comment List. I have about 7 more that belong on the No-Comment List of Doctor names, but are way too far over the edge for me to post. 

1 – Interesting or Kinda Cool Doctors’ names: 

  • Dr. Doctor
  • Dr. Payne (there are lots of these)
  • Dr. Blood
  • Dr. Ricketts
  • Dr. Stump
  • Dr. Croke
  • Dr. Killie
  • Dr. Poke 

2 – Funny specialty-name matches that are either funny or scary: 

  • Dr. Love (cardiologist)
  • Dr. Schpritz (urologist)
  • Dr. Di(ana) Mort (oncologist)
  • Dr. Plack (cardiologist)
  • Dr. Slaughter (surgeon)
  • Dr. Zipper (urologist)
  • Dr. Moorkath (cardiologist… it’s all about the procedures, baby)
  • Dr. Klutz (surgeon)
  • Dr. Fingers (gynecologist)
  • Dr. Richard Chopp (urologist… don’t believe me? click the link)
  • Dr. Blinder (ophthalmologist)
  • Dr. Nudelman (urologist)
