I could only read to the name at the end of the second paragraph.

I'm sure the rest of the piece was very informative.

But the doctors name, really freakin funny!

Ohhh I can tell some tales about amusing names, but this is my favourite. Working for a global company, a lot of our Asian colleagues choose "western" sounding first names to use instead of their given ones that may be difficult to pronounce. Sometimes they have a fairly warped view of western culture, which lead to one guy naming himself "Elvis Dong". This in itself was amusing enough, but after a while he realised that Elvis was not the best choice, and went back to his given first name of "Malong". Yup, "Malong Dong".

There was also a guy called "Bang Bang Patang".
