A few years ago, my husband and I went to a Halloween party. I dressed up as a doctor, and Mark, in his infinate sense of humor, came up with the following department heads in my hospital....
Cardiology: Ken Breakhearts
Ob/Gyn: Jimmy Swaggert
Nutrition: Calista Flockhart
Urology: Hugh G. Rection

I wish I could remember more [Frown] ; I was telling him about the current message board theme and he was reminded of that list he made up.
[lol] <<----Mark as I was describing the this month's and last month's Snopes message board theme.

My urologist is Dr. Ianotti.
He did my vasectomy, he has also performed the procedure for a few friends.
We call him Dr. Tie-a-Knotti.

Less amusing than Hugh G. Rection, but true.

My mom went to a doctor in Baltimore called Dr Peter Enis. Can't remember what his speciality was though - gynae I think?

The Northern VA snopesters may be able to confirm this, but my sister once told me there were 2 OBGYNs in the area named Dr. Cutter and Dr. Beaver. (not in practice together)

Worked at a hospital where they had Dr. Dye and Dr. Posthumous. They were surgeons, not sure of speciality. I always grinned at the overhead pages for those two.

My dentist's name is Chip Silvertooth. His real first name is Eugene, but he goes by Chip.

Kind of like a funeral director going by "Digger," I suppose. [Smile]

I went to a skin doctor in Tennessee called Dr. Rash (very nice doctor, btw).. There's also a urologist in my area called Dr. Concepción.

And let's not forget Dr. Paine in Va Beach.. Plus I recall seeing a sign for a dentist called Dr. Hurt.

My optometrist has a partner named Dr. Hearing. I've often wondered why he didn't become an ear doctor.

Do you think any of these doctors changed their names to be a bit more...humorous? Some of them are just so coincidental!

*takes out pad and pen* I am studying to be a doctor, you know. Gotta keep my sense of humor! [Wink]

My gynecologist for the longest time was a nurse practicioner named Joy Hogg, who was as round as she was tall. I thought it was a bit of an irony.

I've always wondered that, too.. I thought Dr. Rash the skin doctor was a joke until I was scheduled for an appointment with him! Maybe these people were just born to be doctors in these fields [Razz]

There's a chiropractor in the area here who is Dr. Tickel... but it gets better.

The temporary banner hung over the door when he first moved into his current office space read:

"Dr. Will Tickel"

Is that a promise????

My dentist in Colorado Springs was named Doctor Payne. He was the coolest dentist I ever had. I guess he had to have a sense of humor.

Doctor Doolittle had an office three doors down from my house in CS.
