I voted for Phlox. When I originally watched Enterprise, I thought he was annoying. But when I rewatched some of it a couple years ago, I was pleasantly surprised by how good his bedside manner was.
I'll take 24th century medical tech over a good bedside manner any day
I'd be more worried about him chatting about my medical records with anyone curious, taking my DNA and cloning a transplant being or deciding my affliction is part of my nature life cycle and letting me die.

The Doctor (from later seasons)

Him or Phlox, i'm scared of doctors and those two are the nicest which is most important to me.

If it's possible for 22nd-24th century fictional doctors to treat a 21st century live human, it should be equally possible for the 22nd century doc to have acquired the knowledge and technology of his 23rd and 24th century successors.

On the other hand, R. Star's points are a bit worrisome.

Re: Poll: Which doctor would you want to work on you?

If it's something serious then I'm going to the EMH. He's the best doctor on the list. Plus, he doesn't tire, make stupid mistakes, etc., etc.

If it was for something relatively minor it probably wouldn't matter whom I chose.

I expected Crusher to be in the top 3 for some reason.

Strictly in terms of odds of survival I'd have to go with The Doc.

The Doctor! He has the medical knowledge of hundreds of doctors and never needs to sleep.

Re: Poll: Which doctor would you want to work on you?

Plus he's got a cute fez. On occasion.

My vote would still go to Pulaski, who seemed by far the most competent of the lot, in terms of usually not having to seek for the answer from farther than her own publications. "VISOR bothering you? I could give you eyes, you know. No? Okay, forget it. ...I can make you forget, too, you know."

Out of the actually available choices, Bashir is fine. Sure, he's probably a bit too excited about me being ill, but that's better than bored (usually), and he's used to working with little equipment; if he were ever to treat me, it'd probably happen in the 21st century because he has better access to time machines, but his access to protoplasers, dermal regenerators and sterility fields might get limited by that.

Re: Poll: Which doctor would you want to work on you?

On a day to day basis I think I'd have to go with Bones or The Doctor.

In terms of who I'd want operating on me if I were to require surgery or serious medical attention I'd definitely go with The Doctor or Bashir.

Re: Poll: Which doctor would you want to work on you?

I think it's funny, but kinda sad, that nobody really trusts Phlox!

That said, I'm still going with the Doc.

Phlox compared to today's doctors is superbly better but compared to the medical abilities of TOS and beyond it's like bloodletting to today's standards.

Bashir or The Doctor. They showed the most dedication.

It's not Phlox's abilities I'm concerned about, it's his ethics.
