My dentist is great. I think the unpopular doctors are the ones who are or at least appear to be incompetent, and I imagine most of us have dealt with that type of doctor before.

I think the worse doctors are periodontists. I went to two, both who gorge my wallet and insurance and caused me to lose precious teeth. Constant surgeries and extra fees for "emergency visits." Finally found one who told me I did not need surgeries, just scaling every three months. Now my gums are healthy and I haven't lost another tooth since.

I love my dentist, but I agree that they are overly feared.
But I suspect a proctologist would be the most unpopular doctor.

No way...gyno land..Its like an alien invasion and that goo is gross.

I actually LIKE the dentist chair. The goo I get tastes like cinnamon there and my teeth feel nice when I am done. I love the dentist.

The doctors that I hate, are the incompetent specialists.

They've studied their stuff for YEARS, have a whole bunch of books in their office concerning their specialisation, have a whole bunch of equipment.

They barely do anything, tell you they don't know, and send you to another doctor.

And of course, they always end with the phrase "that will be X dollars", accompanied by a big grin.
