Dr. Richard Chopp (unfortunate name for a urologist)

Status: Real
I would think twice (and then maybe another three or four times) before going to a urologist named Dr. Dick Chopp. I would also suspect the name had to be a joke. But it doesn't seem to be a joke. It's his real name. He works at the Urology Team, based in Austin, Texas:

Dr. Richard (Dick) Chopp is well known in the Austin community for performing Vasectomies. He also enjoys treating patients with metabolic evolution of kidney stone disease, male endocrine urology disorders, prostate disease and Peyronie's disease. He has extensive laparoscopy surgery experience, is on the transplant team and performs Living Donor Nephrectomy.

He joins that select company of other unfortunately named doctors such as Dr. Reinhardt Adolfo Fuck and Professor Chew Shit Fun.

My mother once had a physician named Dr. Hurt. Really.

A well respected surgeon in our town was named Dr. Slaughter. Quite a few names people have that I am glad I didn't go through high school with. One gal's maiden name was Sauerbutt. Probably why she got married so quickly.

In London Ontario Canada, there is a dentist named Dr. Payne. There used to be a surgeon named Dr. Death. Apparently, an "e" was added to the end of the name and is pronounced "deeth".

I received stitches once from a Dr. Bobo, and I know an ObGyn named Dr. Bush. Dick Chopp still wins though.

When I was a kid, our family doctor's name was I.M. Fast.

When I was living in Ohio I saw a doctor whose name was pronounced "Check-My-Coff" but spelled in some Eastern European manner that I have forgotten. However, he was a foot doctor.

This really made me laugh, Alex. Thank you.
I think I laughed a bit longer someone my age should have, though.

"unfortunately named doctors such as ... Professor Chew Shit Fun."

Hey, don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

I had a vasectomy 20 years ago...(call me snippy, but go ahead- make a few cutting remarks, if you've got the balls). The urologist who performed this procedure was a Korean doc named Dr. Saw. No lie... I asked him before he began if his first name was Rusty, but he didn't get the joke... owww...still hurts to laugh. Bastard

Just got snipped by Dr. Chopp Friday. Every guy gets a T-shirt that on the back says "I got Chopped" in large letters. He does have a good sense of humor. He wore a camouflaged apron over scrubs so that I "Could not see him" work. Office is in swanky West Lake area of Austin for half his time. It was a nice, upscale facility. It was so comfortable there that I wouldn't mind going there every year for a vasectomy 😉

Dr. Deathe isn't a surgeon, he's a pain management specialist; mine. And, incidentally, my dentist is Dr. Payne. My kids think it's HILARIOUS!

Dr Chopp removed my testicular cancer on Wednesday this week. He did an awesome job. I'd go to him again, and I highly recommend him to anyone in the Austin area.
