A nurse was on duty in the Emergency Room when a young woman with purple hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing, entered. It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for immediate surgery. When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it there was a tattoo that read, ‘Keep off the grass.’ Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient’s dressing, which said, ‘Sorry, had to mow the lawn.’

During a patient’s two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his medications. ‘Which one?’ I asked. ‘The patch, the Nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now I’m running out of places to put it!’ I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn’t see. Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

An elderly patient became irate during a medical examination when he peaked at the doctor’s chart and saw that the doctor had written Major S.O.B. underlined at the bottom.

A man comes into the ER and yells, ‘My wife’s going to have her baby in the cab!’ I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady’s dress, and began to take off her under-wear. Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs — and I was in the wrong one.

I was performing rounds at the hospital one morning and while checking up on a woman I asked, ‘So how’s your breakfast this morning?’ ‘It’s very good, except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can’t seem to get used to the taste,’ the patient replied. I then asked to see the jelly and the woman produced a foil packet labeled ‘KY Jelly.’

Doctor Jokes

 

 

Here are some classic funny doctor jokes.

 

 

A pipe burst in a doctor’s house. He called a plumber. The plumber arrived, unpacked his tools, did mysterious plumber-type things for a while, and handed the doctor a bill for $600.
The doctor exclaimed, “This is ridiculous! I don’t even make that much as a doctor!”
The plumber quietly answered, “Neither did I when I was a doctor.”

 

 

The seven-year old girl told her mom, “A boy in my class asked me to play doctor.”
“Oh, dear,” the mother nervously sighed. “What happened, honey?”
“Nothing, he made me wait 45 minutes and then double-billed the insurance company.”

 

 

A fellow walked into a doctor’s office and the receptionist asked him what he had.
He said, “Shingles.”
So she took down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.
A few minutes later a nurse’s aid came out and asked him what he had.
He said, “Shingles.”
So she took down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told him to wait in the examining room.
Ten minutes later a nurse came in and asked him what he had.
He said, “Shingles.”
So she gave him a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, told him to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.
Fifteen minutes later the doctor came in and asked him what he had.
He said, “Shingles.”
The doctor said, “Where?”
He said, “Outside in the truck. Where do you want them?”

 

 

A man walks into a doctor’s office. He has a cucumber up his nose, a carrot in his left ear and a banana in his right ear.
“What’s the matter with me?” he asks the doctor.

Grandma was nearly ninety years of age when she won 1,000,000 pounds on the football pools. Her family were extremely worried about her heart and feared that news of her large win would come as too much of a shock for her.
‘Think we had better call in the doctor to tell her the news,’ suggested the eldest son.
The doctor soon arrived and the situation was explained to him.
‘Now, you don’t have to worry about anything,’ said the doctor. ‘I am fully trained in such delicate matters and I feel sure I can break this news to her gently. I assure you, there is absolutely no need for you to fear for her health. Everything will be quite safe if left to me.’
The doctor went in to see the old lady and gradually brought the conversation around to football pools.
‘Tell me,’ said the doctor, ‘what would you do if you had a large win on the pools – say one million pounds?’
‘Why,’ replied the old lady, ‘I’d give half of it to you, of course.’
The doctor fell down dead with shock.

 

 

A middle-aged woman enters her family doctor’s office in a frantic state.
She says, “Doctor, I think I’m turning into a horse!”
The doctor, taken aback, replies, “I’m sure you may have SOME problem, but I assure you no human has ever turned into a horse.”
The woman became more insistent and said, “Doctor, look at my teeth. They’re getting bigger and more yellow!”
The doctor calmly replied, “Yes, I see. Your teeth appear a bit larger and more yellow than your last visit, but I don’t think you’re turning into a horse.”
Getting more frustrated, the woman said, “Well, I think I’m getting a mane! Look at all this hair on the back of my neck. It’s grown 5 inches in ONE WEEK!”
Becoming more concerned, the doctor said, “You’re NOT turning into a horse. We’ll just shave your neck occasionally.”
At this point the woman became considerably frustrated, speaking faster and louder. “Just look at my finger and toe nails! They’ve become very thick and big. I’m developing HOOVES!”
The doctor in amazement cried, “Holy cow! I’ve never seen finger and toe nails THAT big!”
Then the woman pulls up the back of her skirt and says, “Look at this, doctor. My backbone is protruding significantly from my butt!”
The doctor looked in amazement, and then started scribbling on a small piece of paper.
The woman asked, “Are you writing me a prescription?”
The doctor said, “No. I’m writing a memo to my brother-in-law. He works at City Hall. Take this to him and he’ll give you a permit to take a dump in the street!”

 

 

A man went to see his doctor because he was suffering from a miserable cold. His doctor prescribed some pills, but they didn’t help.
On his next visit the doctor gave him a shot, but that didn’t do any good.
On his third visit the doctor told the man to go home and take a hot bath. As soon as he was finished bathing he was to throw open all the windows and stands in the draft.
“But doc,” protested the patient, “if I do that, I’ll get pneumonia.”
“I know,” said his physician. “I can cure pneumonia.”
