Top definition
A doctor or other caregiver who, rather than working for the patient's best interest and health, instead works for an insurance company or the government. Their "patient" is really the entity that employs them, and their job is to control costs and serve the interests of their employer. This ultimately creates a conflict of interest.

2. Death panels will be staffed by pod doctors.
