That's fun, but Dr. House is the most trusted and professional?

Seriously?  First, he was a diagnostician, and rarely followed established guidelines for diagnoses, but usually got to the correct diagnosis eventually (easier to do in scripted television than life).

Plus, if I remember correctly, in the final season, didn't he completely disregard standard of care for cancer in favor of an extreme alternative treatment that hadn't been tested on humans, and force the treatment on a patient without consent?

I think the one TV doctor who should occupy that top right corner:



 Dr. Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes) on "ER."

She always followed standard of care, and even did clinical trials on the show.

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

You want to Photoshop her into the picture, or should I?

Help yourself.

Any other TV or Movie doctors should be included or excluded?

Why is Dr. Pepper in the "Run away" category? I like Dr. Pepper.

And I love werecow's chocolate syrup water bottle!!!!

I would not trust any tv doctor with my life. They are actors, for crissake! Or, at best, they don't exist. I have quite literally trusted doctors with my life, specifically when undergoing surgery, including heart surgery. But I also trust hiking guides with my life, and so far, they've always come through for me. Note: I do not do high-risk hiking, but there's always some risk. But back to doctors, I would not trust anyone who lacks a proper medical degree to perform any medical procedure on me, nor would I take medical advice from anyone without a proper medical degree. Beyond that, I don't have a lot to go on. I pretty much have to trust to the medical degree and medical license. Testimonials are worthless because my friends, whose honesty I trust, are not competent to assess a doctor's abilities.

Im so glad someone corrected that graphic. I was about to make a life endangering decision based on my misconception that Dr House sets a reasonable standard for medical practice.

What about Dr Strangelove?  Not medically qualified, but possibly someone one ought to take advice from, particularly if there’s an end of the world situation.

I'd probably go with Doc Martin. He has zero bedside manner and social skills, and a blood phobia, but he seems pretty solid as a physician.

Except for all that fainting at the sight of blood stuff.

It must be too early in the morning for me, but I initially thought you were referring to Dr Martens:

Definitely not medically qualified.  And one should definitely not take advice from a piece of footwear.

He mostly just hurls though, and rarely on the patient.
