Determine your specialty. Are you a brain surgeon, a psychiatrist, a general practitioner?
Gather shower caps from hotel visits, or get one from the drugstore for that sterile surgeon look. A psychiatrist? A Hollywood stylist would muss your hair a bit.
Glue an old CD to a length of elastic that fits around your forehead. Now you look like the old-fashioned doc with a headlamp.
Poke around thrift stores for scrubs or lab coats. In a pinch, an oversize white or kelly green shirt will do.
Look for loose cotton PJs in white or green for your bottoms.
Snap a couple of those extra shower caps over your shoes for the proper surgeon look.
Check out the toy store for a stethoscope, tongue depressor or oversize reflex hammer.
Make a button for your lapel that says, "What're Your Symptoms?"
Carry a plastic saw, plastic bones or a big candy thermometer for a few extra laughs.
Carry a pad, pencil and pipe if you're a shrink.
