* [[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]]'').

* 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.

* [[InsistentTerminology Professor]] Richard Craig of ''All Saints''. Thanks to his world-class surgical skills, he is able to get away with habitually disregarding the opinions of the nurses in spite of their proven diagnostic abilities, criticising his protege Luke for being willing to listen to them, regularly antagonizing patients when they decide against his (usually experimental) treatment suggestions, and in one case lying to a patient about his wife surviving their car accident. It's hardly surprising that Bron conceals the fact that he's her father, especially after he blackmails her into leaving the hospital in exchange for him saving the life of a friend. (To his credit, it's actually Bron that holds herself to this agreement, even though Bob died in surgery and Craig left at the same time.)

* ''Series/{{MADtv}}'': Series/DrPhil is parodied to be this in every sketch where he shows up (or just [[Series/TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah]]'s lapdog if she's also present). His "advice" usually consists of insulting people or punching them in the face. Also, he's not really a doctor.

** In fact, starting in season 2, it becomes a running theme in the series that any doctor who spends too much time in House's orbit eventually becomes this. Much of Dr. Foreman's character arc involves trying to overcome his own House-like tendencies, to varying levels of success:

** Since they are friends, it is more like making fun from friend rather than patient.

* The prevalence of this in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s medical doctors adds a subtle challenge element to the game, in that the player will more than likely only resort to talking to them when they really, ''really'' need their help. Doc Church in Megaton is the Player's first taste as being overworked and underappreciated (and having a few skeletons in his closet) has made him pissy. The Mister Gutsy Sawbones in the Pentagon is one of the last as while he does ''know'' how to perform surgery he doesn't know ''how'' to do surgery (at least without doing harm). The Mister Handy Andy in Vault 101 is by the worst, despite being one of the nicest characters, as he was made the Vault doctor but his lack of fine motor skills and medical knowledge means he killed one of his patients ([[spoiler:this is because the Overseer Alphonse Almodovar/Allen Mack ''made'' him the doctor to demoralize the rebels]]).

The Mister Handy Andy in Vault 101 is by He also likes and wants to hurt humans but behavior limiters prevent him from purposefully hurting people if they aren't deemed a threat. He and his personality are based on the worst, despite being one of the nicest characters, as he was made the Vault doctor but [=EMH=] Mk I from ''LiveActionTelevison/StarTrekVoyager'', including his lack of fine motor skills and medical knowledge means he killed one of his patients ([[spoiler:this is because the Overseer Alphonse Almodovar/Allen Mack ''made'' him the doctor to demoralize the rebels]]). penchant for poetry.
