70 Real Life Funny Doctor Names

People have choked on my surname. I have to repeat its spelling two or three times on most phone purchases and frequently resort to just saying "look it’s 'salad-bar' with a zee in place of the d and b.” But at least my name has no ominous meaning like some of my unfortunate doctor colleagues coming up.

As an intern I walked across from the hospital to an administration building - for what purpose I can’t recall now - and came across a shingle on a door that almost made me burst out laughing. It was the office of a Dr.Hazard. That was like seeing a kid at school with the surname 'Weiner'. I imagined the distress this guy might have felt as an intern like me being paged overhead: “Calling Dr.Hazard, please report to the OR.” Or the angst of his introductions: “Hi, I’m Dr.HAZARD,” (you can trust me, wink, wink). Was this the reason this gent chose to be in administration?

Since then I have come across many other wacky doctor names stranger than fiction. Here is a list of seventy real life funny doctor names I ripped from RateMD.com LOL:

If first impressions really count I wonder how some of these doctors fare. Dr. Kill must make for some awkward introductions and polite conversation behind their back. And how far would your trust meter deflect for Drs. Bozzo, Kwak, Klutz, or Warning? Would you hesitate to go under a knife wielded by Dr. Slaughter? Oh have a pap test with Dr. Yell? While some of these doctors may have trouble making car payments with names that make patients think twice, others may have an unfair advantage through toilet humor. If Dr.Cockburn was a urologist in my area he’d get all of my urological referrals... I mean how could I forget his name?

I have made peace with my own tongue twisting surname. People may choke on it, but that’s better than to croak on it - apology to you Dr.Croak :).
