Added DiffLines:

** Also Dr. Pal Meraktis from ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' could count as well. He botched a surgery for the Yakuza the Kitaki family's Wocky, and both he and the nurse hid the botched surgery from Winfred "Big Wins" Kitaki so he wouldn't get blamed for it. While he did feel genuine remorse for what he had done (at least according to his rival) nevertheless he left a 19 year old young man to die so the killer of that case [[spoiler: the nurse]] could go on with their plan to inherit the fortune.
** [[spoiler: Pierce Nichody, the culprit of the DLC case in ''Spirit of Justice'']] counts as well. [[spoiler: After he's outed as the culprit and a surgeon, he compares the attorney, the judge, and the prosecutor to malignant cancerous tumors.]] However they have some sympathetic moments so they're not as bad as the above two.

* As {{Flanderization}} kicked in, Dr. Julius Hibbert of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' became a BitchInSheepsClothing version of one. The man is perfectly willing and able to let you die if you have no way to pay his consultations (at his nicest, he will just ''handcuff you to the bed until you can pay''), is a corporate goon that sells crappy medicine if he's paid enough, is a hard-core member of the local Republican party (which InUniverse is a bunch of {{CardCarryingVillain}}s) and overall he will treat any patients like a bunch of complete hopeless morons and guffaw in their faces about it.

--->'''May''': (wimpering) "Quit trying to..."
--->'''Dr. Knox''': "I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE AFFAIRS OF YOUR COUNTRY, DUMB-ASS!!"

* O'Mara, the chief psychologist at SectorGeneral, is bad-tempered, cutting, and sarcastic to pretty much everyone he meets...except people he thinks are in actual need of his services, with whom he is quiet and considerate. The Dr. Jerk behavior is therefore sort of reassuring to the rest of the hospital staff, because they know that when he drops it, they're in serious trouble.

** Subverted with Ryuuken Ishida. Introduced from Uryuu's point-of-view, he seems abrasive, materialistic and uncaring. Eventually, it becomes clear he [[JerkassFacade wants]] his son to think the worst of him for [[MysteriousPast unknown reasons]] that loyal friend Isshin knows all about. Behind Uryuu's back, he's much more gentle, protective and fatherly.

* As is fitting for ''LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek'', any [[TheUnfairSex male]] doctor to ever walk in on screen will go out of his way to be a jerk, especially when it isn't beneficial for anyone, not even himself. See HarrisonFord's character Dr. Stonehill in ''Extraordinary Measures''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheGoodDoctor'': [[TheAce Dr. Melendez]] is very good at his job but also very full of himself, and quite prejudiced and mean to the autistic protagonist. However he gradually comes to respect Shaun and mellow into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. The same cannot be said for [[TheMeanBrit Dr. Kalu]], who takes advantage of other surgeons and takes credit for Shaun's life-saving idea at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* On the softer side, Dr. Michel Cymes (often dubbed "The French Doctor House"), host of a health show on French TV, is never short of a snide remark, mainly at the expense of his co-host, Dr. Marina Carrère d'Encausse (sometimes referred as his Lisa Cuddy).

* [[DeanBitterman Dean Walcott]] of ''Film/PatchAdams'' supposedly is trying to train doctors to be capable of taking in the bitterness of dealing with people who may die under their care and not fall to pieces over it, but in reality he (and pretty much every other doctor that appears on screen other than Patch and his friends) are StrawVulcan versions of this, doing such inhumane things as flatly telling a patient that they have a few months to live and walk away without saying another word or only refer to them through their file number or their sickness (''[[ImStandingRightHere while the patient is standing right next to them]]'').

** The DrJerk is played straight in the 4th series with the character of Dr. Edith Montgomery, who not only shares Martin's lack of bedside manner but has even less care or empathy for her patients.
