* Pal Meraktis in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney''. [[MeaningfulName Do a little shuffle]], and a little Malpractice falls right out.
** [[spoiler:While he does work for TheMafia (and used his connections to drive another doctor out of business), it's never clearly stated how bad his medical credentials truly are. His one stated case involved a bullet stuck between the patient's heart and major blood vessels, and he decided to leave it alone and sew up the patient rather than risking to kill the patient. At the end of the case, it is outright stated only one surgeon in the entire world could remove the bullet safely.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' has Doctor S, Rob [=McTodd=]'s personal plastic surgeon. He claims that he doesn't need a medical license to practice medicine out of a cave, and for some reason, ends up being hired as the kingdom's official doctor. He frequently makes misdiagnosis and his practices resemble a MadScientist more than a doctor.
-->'''Doctor S''': ''(Regarding a line of patients)'' Look at them Nurse Phantom, so many test subjects, and I don't even have to dig any of them up!\\
'''Hector''': I don't know why I'm here, I'm in perfect health.\\
'''Doctor S''': Not for long!

* ''VideoGame/BeneathASteelSky'' has Dr. Burke, a cosmetic surgeon who runs this trope into the ground. He operates on patients who are not anesthetized for no discernable reason, he huffs the gas himself, and turned his dead wife into a holographic receptionist. It doesn't help that you have to undergo surgery from him for a couple of alterations. (namely, your Schreibmann port to jack into LINC-Space, and to get someone else's fingerprints grafted to your hands to [[BorrowedBiometricBypass bypass a biometric lock]])
