* In ''{{Discworld}}'' fic ''Fanfic/WhyandWere'', Assassin Johanna Smith-Rhodes is patched up in the field by an Igor and ignores his advice not to put any strain on a broken forearm. She concludes her contract by firing a powerful crossbow, and the recoil and stress re-breaks the arm. The Guild's Matron Igorina is suitably sarcastic and acerbic.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Teal'c''': Dr. Fraiser believes you are not strong enough to undertake such a mission.\\
'''O'Neill''': Yeah, whatever. ''*tries to get out of bed, immediately collapses on the floor*''\\
'''Teal'c''': ''*not changing expression*'' Dr. Fraiser is usually correct in such matters.

** For ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' an additional wrinkle was thrown in: due to personnel losses in the first episode, the ship's doctor is a hologram. As such, the captain ''could'' just shut him down if she doesn't want to follow his orders -- or even reprogram him, as happened to his counterpart on the ''Equinox''. The problem, as touched upon in [[ResetButton one episode that didn't actually happen in the end]] is that while Janeway ''usually'' is sane enough to keep her rebellions against doctor's order to small things like dragging her feet about having check-ups, there's nothing saying that will still be the case when she is unhealthy enough that she ''should'' be relieved of command.

Well, he's your doctor. By which we mean, he is [[NotThatKindOfDoctor that kind of doctor.]] Unless, of course, he's the [[HealingHands healer]], the midwife, the nurse, TheMedic, or any other member of the healing profession. And he is quite certain that you must obey [[TropeNamer The Doctor's Orders]].

** Expanded upon [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2012-05-06 here]] :
--> '''Doctor bunnigus''' : Pi, would you explain your rank relative to mine to Doctor Cikitsaka here?
--> '''Pibald''' : Yes Ma'am. We're both lieutenants without assigned troops. I do [[DemolitionsExpert explosives]], she does medical. I got [[TheParanoiac medical issues]], so she's usually bossing me around.

* In Creator/JohnHemry's TheLostFleet novel ''Invincible'', Geary orders a day of rest despite many urgent needs, because exhaustion is hampering their work efforts. He suspects that a doctor who speaks to him hasn't slept for days, including that one, and thinks of how doctors take their oaths more seriously than they do their positions as officers.
