What does it mean when you dream about a doctor?

Doctors symbolize healing or the desire for healing, either physically or psychologically. They also represent authority, even the higher self. To someone attuned to alternative medicine, a traditional doctor may also represent mainstream orthodoxy as opposed to natural healing.

Doctor

(dreams)
Dreaming about a doctor may represent a need for physical, emotional, or spiritual healing. Doctors are respected authority figures and we usually follow their advice and guidance in regard to our well being. Depending on your belief system, the doctor in your dream could also represent your higher self or inner guidance. If you are currently experiencing a health problem and doctors are a part of your daily/weekly life, this dream may be symbolic of real life difficulties. However, the dream is most likely based on a past event, a memory, or refers to a current need for healing, rather than a prediction of the future.
