Dr. Proctor (Japanese: ドクター・ドク Doctor Doc) is a character of the day of the anime who appeared in A Chansey Operation. He is a doctor for humans who was forced to treat injured Pokémon after an accident involving Team Rocket and a truck load of stolen Pokémon.
Proctor also appeared to be very lazy. He didn't want to open up his hospital to treat any of the injured Pokémon until Ash, his friends, and Nurse Joy convinced him to. But once engaged, he became a skilled and competent physician, treating his patients with confidence and compassion. He also proved to be a formidable fighter, using his medical equipment as weapons to help foil Team Rocket's attempt to steal all the injured Pokémon.
- His character is based on Dr. Doug Ross, a character on the American drama ER. Rikaya Koyama, Dr. Proctor's Japanese voice actor, was the voice of Dr. Ross in the Japanese dub of ER. Like Dr. Proctor, Dr. Ross is a womanizer. And, as Dr. Proctor was drawn to look like Dr. Ross, he looks like an animated version of Dr. Ross's actor, George Clooney.
- In the Finnish version, Dr. Proctor's name was Tohtori Luusaha.
