You might not spend hours searching out the world’s best doctor every time you have to get a physical, but the stories of these five worst doctors may change your mind. These doctors should never have been able to practice medicine. Read their disgusting and shameful stories below.
Number Five: Dr. Lufti Dervishi. Dr. Lufti Dervishi took advantage of poor people by promising to pay them if they donated their organs. However, the reality of what he would do is much more grim. After harvesting vulnerable people’s organs, Dervishi and his team would leave them without any care and refused to pay them. He then sold their organs on the black market.
Number Four: Dr. Josef Mengele. Mengele was a physician in Auschwitz during World War II. He was so detested that he was known as the angel of death. He sent anyone who was weak or ill to the gas chamber, and he performed evil experiments on men, women, and children. His favorite subjects were twins, and he often performed experiments with no anesthetic and while his subjects were still conscious.
Number Three: Dr. Cecil Jacobson. Dr. Cecil Jacobson was a renowned fertility specialist working in Vienna… until people discovered that his “miracle elixir” was his own sperm. Rather than help women become pregnant with their sperm of choice, he impregnated more than 50 women with his own semen without telling them.
Number Two: Dr. John Bodkin Adams. Through the 10-year period between 1946 and 1956, Dr. John Bodkin Adams helped kill more than 160 of his patients to get their money. He would fraudulently change their wills so that he got their money, and then he would use prescription drugs and painkillers to quickly and suspiciously kill his patients.
Number One: Dr. John Hall. One of the most horrific medical stories ever told, Dr. John Hall was a dentist who liked to put his own tools in his patients’ mouths. Specifically, he would send his assistants out of the room during his surgeries and tell his patients to swallow a syringe of unidentified liquid that would allegedly help “clean” their mouths. However, the syringes were filled with his own semen. He spent just four months in prison for his horrid acts.
