* A ''NewTricks'' episode focusing on the death of a rock singer, had his former band mates point the detectives at 'Doc' who supplied them all with drugs back in the day. The guy turned out to be just a dealer rather than actual doctor.

* A VictimOfTheWeek on ''{{The Glades}}'' was one of these and the clinic he operated was a 'pill mill'. It turned out that the clinic was only one of a whole chain of pill mills operated by a corrupt medical company. Also the dead doctor was doing it [[spoiler: so he could raise money for medical supplies to send to earthquake ravaged Haiti]]

* Music/TheBeatles song "Dr. Robert" was about the real-life New York City doctor Max Jacobson (despite the NationalHealth reference) whose nickname was the TropeNamer. He got involved with JFK, giving him several controversial treatments. Some of these involved illegal drugs such as methamphetamines. Many of Kennedy's medical problems and treatments were only recently declassified

* The Pusher career of ''TabletopGame/MyriadSong'' is very much this: a medic that is good at smooth-talking and the medicines that he uses to heal his team's injuries, while powerful and effective, have a pretty good chance of becoming addictive.

to:

* On ''Series/{{Shadowhunters}}'', Victor Aldertree, head of the Institute and a former field medic, gives Isabelle the FantasticDrug ''yin fen''. This is allegedly to help her recover from an injury, but he plays up his helpfulness in seeking a date with her. The drug is also extremely addictive, being made from vampire venom. Unable to get it from any source except for Aldertree, Isabelle ends up seeking out actual vampires to get bitten.

* Music/PinkFloyd's "Comfortably Numb" has verses apparently sung by such a doctor (who's aiming to revive the KO'd protagonist to make him perform a show; the movie of [[TheWall the album]] shows it's not that glamorous. The song was partially inspired by Music/RogerWaters' encounter of one when he fell ill on tour ):

* Pretty much ''every'' doctor in UsefulNotes/NaziGermany who wasn't a MadDoctor was one of these instead (often both). Germany's early successes in the war were in large part due to the soldiers being prescribed gargantuan quantities of meth [[PsychoSerum to remove their need for sleep and ability to feel pain]]. Hitler's own personal physician was quite the candyman, which probably explains quite a bit.

The TropeNamer is the Music/MotleyCrue song, in which the titular doctor does many things (including making cocaine for the Mexican mob). Not to be confused with the ArethaFranklin song or the British pub rock band.
