* 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.

* 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.

** The DrJerk is played straight much straighter 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 unlike him does not actually have any actual concern for the well-being of her patients.

* Entirely inverted by Fran Madaraki of ''Manga/FrankenFran'', who is the nicest, biggest LoveFreak you'll ever meet, willing to forgo payment on operations... but given the nature of these operations, you might actually wish she ''was'' actively villainous.

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'' has Albert Rosenfield, an FBI forensic analyst who spends his entire time in Twin Peaks putting down everything from the medical facilities to everyone in the police department (especially Sheriff Truman) to the local doctor for mourning Laura Palmer.
-->'''Albert Rosenfield:''' Mr. Horne, I realize that your position in this fair community pretty well guarantees venality, insincerity, and a rather irritating method of expressing yourself. Stupidity, however, is not necessarily a inherent trait, therefore, please listen closely. You can have a funeral any old time. You dig a hole, you plant a coffin. I, however, cannot perform these tests next year, next month, next week or tomorrow - I must perform them now. I've got a lot of cutting and pasting to do, gentlemen, so why don't you please return to your porch rockers and resume whittling.

* 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.
