    In our area, we have an opthalmologist named Dr. Foote and an orthopedic surgeon named Dr. Bolt.
    Okay, not an HCP, but my Intro to Legal Process professor in college was named Dr. Supina. And I had another Legal Studies prof named Crooke.

    Also at UW-Madison Hosp and Clinics............
