Jun 18, '01I used to drive by an ob/gyn office in Woodbury NJ with a sign outside reading
Dr Wan B. Lo
Jun 18, '01Here we have Dr. Hackett, Urologist (who does vasectomies); we also have Dr. Love, a GP. Dr. Payne must have a HUGE family!! I see that name all the time!
Jun 19, '01one of our female OBs is Dr Goodhead....
since she is married & uses her maiden name, all the new staff ask "why doesn't she use her married name?" Would you, if your husband's last name was Aids?
Jun 19, '01Pediatric urologist here named Dr. Weiner. I had to struggle not to laugh the first time he introduced himself to me...

Jun 19, '01Hey Kday, We actually have a resident on our unit whose name is Seymour Weiner! His mother must have been on crack when she named him. The poor thing most likely was teased his whole life about it and that's probably what made him so "schizoed!" (crazy ) All of the other residents call him the "cockaroach"...
Jun 20, '01My first dentist was Dr Shock. He had terrible breath AND bad dandruff. I hated opening my mouth c his head hovering over mine!
Jun 24, '01I once looked after a man who had an abdo-perineal resection called Mr. bowel, and one who had surgery on his upper spine called Mr Jellinec. Honest!
Jun 24, '01We used to have a Dr. Vijiian (pronounced
Vahjyne, like vagina) and a Dr. Bush, and a Dr. Lodia, which people mispronounced Lochia. It
was a crackup when we'd hear the operator
page them together overhead.
Now we have a Dr. Morkoc. It is supposed to
be pronounced Morecoach, but people are
forever calling him Morecock. Think he should change the !
Then there was the arogant, conceited E.R.
Dr. Snigma who came up to help us one day with
a code, then belittled us in the ICU for what he felt was an inferior job done, even though
we had already saved the pt. before he got there.
We all howled when the unit secretary called him
Dr. Smegma. (She did it in error, and she
actually did not know what that word meant,
we had to tell her, after we got up from rolling around the floor laughing so hard)
