    When I worked in financial aid at a local college, we'd often have fun while filing student info folders, by trying to find the funniest names. My boss won hands down one day when she ended up filing the folder for Peter Small, the best part was when she opened the folder to see what his middle name was and it started with a B, yup, Mr. Peter B. Small.

    Another good one was the dentist aound the corner from my house years ago, Bobby Boozer DDS...not lettin him near me with a drill!

    Quote from fiestynurse
    At the University of Wisconsin Hospital there was a Dr. Doctor. When they overhead paged him they had to remember to add his first name, because if they paged just Dr. Doctor, every doctor in the hospital would respond.
    I know Dr.Docter! I work with him! We also have a urologist named Dr. Waters and another one named Dr. Bonebrake (although he wasn't in ortho)
    All in the same hospital in Madison, WI! I'm not making this up! :chuckle

    An Accident and Emergency Department in Birmingham boasts a Nurse Payne

    Nurse Hacker scrubs regularly in a London Operating Department

    Sister De'Ath walks the corridors of a hospice in Victoria

    Does Annie Beaver still work in Obstetrics in New York?

    Mrs. Ake, a retired RN, was a specialist nurse in rheumatology

    Kathy Foley was the head of the Catheter Insertion Team (back when they had those in the old days).

    Dr Hui (pronounced "Wee") was a urologist whose wife, a nurse, worked as his office manager. Her name was Pi (pronounced "Pee"). Nurse Cox worked for a different team.

    Chris Feely always favoured complementary therapies - especially therapeutic massage, while Nurse Fang was more at home with Cosmetic Surgery.

    Ed worked with a nun who's last name was Fuchs. He did not know how to pronounce her name - so he asked. And he wanted to die.

    Mary Slaughter could never get a post on the Surgical Unit, and Nurse Cutts was never the 'First Pick' Midwife.

    Sharon Ward - when she gets promoted - will be Sr. Ward.

    Not forgetting Melina, who works on a general medical ward and Nurse Nurse - she goes where she's sent!
    :chuckle Birmingham, AL Dr. Fix/Plastics and Specialized Ortho and Dr. Job/Physician Recruiting. :chuckle

    Where I grew up there was a dentist by the name of Dr. Toothacker (don't remember how it was spelled.)

    One of my dentists when I was a kid co-owned a candy company..

    When I was growing up, there was a physician, Frank Slaughter, who wrote medical novels--great stuff, he was always talking about what was current practice at the time (like, when ICUs came in), etc. Great medical history. I think his first novel started out with someone getting a coffee enema, I think for a suicide attempt.

    My PCP is Dr. Man; one day I looked at the name of the doctors in that clinic: Ho, Lee, etc. I think the longest name was Greene. I did have Dr. Lee for my PCP at one time and also had an Ophthalmologist Dr. Ly (pronounced the same.)

    Not really a doctor name, but I went to elementary school with a girl named Billy Jo Dick and her nickname was B.J. At the time I didn't understand that B.J. Dick was something funny.
