My Readers Write

Given that my name is Ibee Grumpy, you'd think I'd be the last person to laugh at someone else's name.

But, since my alert reader Stephanie brought this to my attention, I thought I should share it with all of you (I should be above such juvenile humor, but I'm not). I suspect this group is known in local circles, but...

Anyway, this is a Urology group in Texas, whose members include Dr. Wang, Dr. Hardemann, and (of course) Dr. Dick Chopp.



Sorry, Drs. Wang, Hardemann, and Chopp, but I'm sure you guys hear the jokes all the time. Plus, there's no such thing as bad publicity!

For those of you who don't believe me, here's their website.

And a great big Dr. Grumpy thank you to Stephanie!

Epic. Simply Epic.

GradStudent said...

wow. I hope they have some sort of traffic tracker - they'll be wondering where all these hits they'll surely be getting came from!

Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe--lawyer group mentioned by someone on PBS (? Click & Clack Brothers)

student dr. blaze said...

LOL! XD

And to think I was worried when I discovered before my surgery (15 minutes pre-op) this summer that my anesthesiologist's name was Dr. Nutter....

Dr Chopp did my friend's vasectomy...no lie

NY pharmacy intern said...

Best I ever saw for a humerous name was "Dr. D. Doctor", he is a surgeon at a hospital I did a rotation at.

ER's Mom said...

In Toledo, OH, there is a urologist named Richard Tapper. Yes, his nickname is the obvious.

KateA said...

And not a word about "Randy Fagin?"

Dani said...

GradStudent- I was totally thinking that too. They might think that they are suddenly going to get an influx of new patients or something.

Grace said...

And one guy's first name is "Randy"!

cadaverchronicles said...

Depending on regional pronounciation, you may have overlooked another unique name...

Dr. "Hose"-er

Maybe it is "House"-er, but it's still another ironic name in the group...

Anonymous said...

Oh...Dr. Elizabeth has her "houser" hoser?

Anonymous said...

Oh...I wonder if Dr Glesler has a geyser

Anonymous said...

and Dr. Fagin.....I am not toching that one!

MomNurseWife said...

Classic. Dr. Wang should seriously consider a new first name as well. I don't think I'd want anyone named Lester up in my junk. Perhaps it's as well he didn't match up with OB/GYN?

Interesting, though not necessarily relevant - when I visted the actual website, what jumped out at me was that ALL OF THE DOCTORS HAVE UNNATURALLY WHITE TEETH! Group discount on whitening? Photoshopped? Enquiring minds want to know. Weird.

Maha said...

LOL I thought I had it bad with my majorly ethnic name that's butchered by all those who come across it! That's hilarious!

pAula said...

Let's see...I've known a Dr Hacker (a surgeon), and a Dr Butt (an internist)...darn, there's gotta be more!

Anonymous said...

not to mention Dr. Randy

Anonymous said...

Well in my area we have an OBGYN named Dr Lance Holemon as well as another named Dr Bush (also OBGYN). They had no choice but to specialize below the waist...

Nurse K said...

What no commentary on the penis-lovin' Randy Faggin?

They all look like nice people.

PJ Geraghty said...

As God is my witness, until at least the mid 1990s there was an OB/GYN in suburban Virginia named Harry Beaver.

It never fails to amaze me how many professionals seem to be pointed to their careers based on the irony sure to be stirred by their surnames. Or their temperaments, hehe.

Aura said...

Even funnier, Dr Chopp is "well known in the Austin community for performing vasectomies."

I quote him "There are more vasectomies to be done"

Julie said...

It gets worse - look at Dr Chopp's profile, and I quote:

AREAS OF SPECIAL INTEREST
Dr. Richard (Dick) Chopp is well known in the Austin community for performing Vasectomies.

Guess he takes his name to a new level

Tachyon said...

I've heard of a couple of Dr. Pons in neurology.

Not funny, just appropriate :)

Dr Hardeman does penile implants. Priceless.

Anonymous said...

There's a dentist in my area named Dr. Sueme.

Anonymous said...

Dr.Graves(my ex-dentist,deceased now). Anyone with such
a name should not be working on people(or their teeth).

f8hasit said...

That's great!
My dentist's name is Dr. Smilovitz.

I figured he was destined to be a dentist.
:-)

Jedi Meg said...

There is a urologist in my hometown in Central Illinois named Dr. Leak.

Shalom said...

There's an overnight ER doc near me named Dr Rasch. I told him once that with a name like that he ought to have been a dermatologist instead...

word verification "lessized". Not encouraging in a post about urologists.

Anonymous said...

I've known gynecologists named Dr. Finger and Dr. DeCunto.

Anonymous said...

Maybe a Korean gynecologist, Dr. Hoo Ha?

Knucklehead said...

See, you KNOW that Dr. Chopp is doing it on purpose. He could go by "Rick" or "Rich" or "Richie" or hell, even "Skip" if he wanted to. Opting for the always-controversial "Dick" is just wrong.

David said...

Worked with a Pathologist named Dr. Hackman.

Golden opportunity missed, when he decided to go into general surgery instead of urology:

And to end it all there is (was? the

Long Funeral Service

in Cambridge MA.

BTW: There is a real sign in a second floor Harvard Square window for "Dewey Cheatham and How."

Susan said...

I know an OB/GYN named Dr. Wang and a coroner named Dr. Grim.

NikkiK said...

I know of an OB/GYN named Dr. Feeley and a DDS named Dr. Fang.

Christy said...

I had an OBGYN named Dr. Kil.

mbaforhire said...

I never know how to choose a Dr when I move to a new area so I just go down the insurance list. I had no choice but to go with Dr. Busch of course.

Frank, CPhT said...

I've always been fond of a local Dentist. Her name is Dr. Payne. I really imagine her name inspired great confidence in all of her patients.

River said...

I knew a butcher once whose name is Cutts.

mommanator said...

my hubby had a vasecetomy fro Debenadictus-he didnt see the humor?

Anonymous said...

Did anyone else notice that one of Dr. Hardeman's specialties is erectile dysfunction?

heartlessempath said...

So... Dr. Wang was totally my Dad's urologist. Um. Yeah. Mom may have laughed at him at first, thinking he was joking. Small world!

Anonymous said...

I've seen a Dr. Hand in OB/GYN and a Dr. Kwak

I know of a surgeon named Dr Ghori and a urologist named Dr Arweeni
