    Oh yeah, and in med school I worked with a plastic surgeon, Dr. Rak (pronounced rack). Sadly, it took me several days to see the humor in that :)

    Three that spring to mind:

    1) I graduated with Dr. Hu (think sci-fi)
    2) I've seen a business card for a Dr. Cockburn, a Urologist in St. Petersburg, FL
    3) Had a Dr. Beaver in CT Surg at my med school (absolutely no comment, other than to say he clearly missed his calling)

    Dr. Luke Whitecell, pediatric hematologist (I may have misspelled the last name, but that is how he pronounced it).

    I worked with a surgical resident named Dr. Schochet, which he told us was Yiddish for "ritual slaughterer".

    Dr Cleairville........sounds like "clear view"..It would be really neat if he was an opthamologist, however he is an ear, nose, and throat doctor.

    He actaully thought about becoming an opthamologist too :)

    (sorry about the spelling)

    I also know a Dr. Doctor (FP).
    Dr. Carver - he was a forensic pathologist who did autopsies. My parents found it funny and I didn't intially pick up on the humor...but once I did, it always made me smile.

    There was a girl at my medical school a couple years younger than me with the last name Doktor.

    And I used to work at a grocery store with a guy named Bill Hirt. He swore his dad was a urologist named Richard (think about it). Never confirmed it, but he said it was true.

    My dad has some friends with great names (not docs as far as I know, but truly great names). For example:
    Richard (Dick) Head - I think he may actually be a FP doc
    Harry Butts
    Richard (Dick) Little - just imagine being in the teacher's grade book in school
    and of course Dick's sons
    Peter Head
    Peter Little (again think about the grade book)

    Funny but true

    My roomate in medical school was Karen Boyle...she decided that she was going into Urology during the 4th year. I gave her a sideways look....."so are you still planning on hyphenating your name when you get married?"
    She replied "Yes"
    "Hmmm....so you will be Dr. Boyle-Cocks the Urologist?"

    She never did marry the guy..not sure if this is why.

    This thread reminded me of a story from 14 years ago. The orthopedic surgeon in town was talking about how, almost 20 years prior to that, everyone would take a turn working in this tiny, rural ED. One night, this orthopedist said, a man came in with his foreskin stuck in his zipper. This doctor had the triage information, and walked in (and this is verbatim - and it IS his name) and said, "Good evening, sir, I'm Dr. Dick - how can I help you?", and the anguished man says, "Man, this is no time for jokes!"

    A classmate of mine named Peter Yu (forgive me Pete... the devil made me do it)... never saw him EVER use just his first initial on anything.

    And a resident in my program was actually mentioned on Jay Leno... her maiden name was Duit (do it) and she married a guy named Quewt (sp? - cute). Imagine that for a hyphenated name.

    Surgeon - Dr. Cutter
    Trauma Surgeon - Dr. Measles (wrong specialty maybe?)
    FP doc - Dr. Shoop



    hey, this is fun!!! I could go on and on and on....
