The Biblical Meaning of Dreaming About a Doctor

The biblical meaning of dreaming about a doctor represents Jesus Christ, healing, and transformation. This dream may be a visitation from Christ to demonstrate his healing power in a spiritual or earthly situation. The healing and transformation may be reflected in your physical body, finances, speech, presence, favor, and ability to boldly declare the word of God with authority.

Dreaming of a doctor can also represent your health fears or an immediate need to visit a doctor. However, it is most likely a symbolic message. Symbolic dreams usually have a hidden meaning that is relatable to your everyday life. God often speaks in parables and riddles to encourage believers to seek him for the interpretation. Fortunately, God has given you “the secrets of the kingdom of heaven” to help you understand his messages. (Matthew 13:11)

What is the Biblical Meaning of Dreaming About a Doctor?

Jesus is symbolically referred to in the Bible as a doctor or the great physician with the power to heal. He was often found with sinners and tax collectors because “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” (Mark 2:17) Sickness represents the brokenness and sinfulness within one’s soul. Essentially, every single human has fallen short of the glory of God. And we all need the miraculous healing power of God.

In conclusion, the doctor within a dream is usually operating on your soul, emotions, and inner world. It’s symbolic of the Holy Spirit working within you. His work will cause all areas of your life to prosper. Therefore, be encouraged that a doctor in a dream will heal you of things that are holding you back from spiritual maturity, healthy relationships, financial increase, and intimacy with God.

Bless the Lord, my soul, and never forget any of his benefits: He continues to forgive all your sins, he continues to heal all your diseases.” (Psalm 103:2-3) Further References: (1 Peter 2:24; James 5:16; Matthew 9:10-13)

Receiving Care From a Doctor in Your Dream

Dreaming of receiving medicine or proper care from a doctor means that you are being healed. The healing may be in your body, soul, or in your daily activities.

God is a healer that cares about the sick. He said he’ll bind up broken hearts, restore health, and strengthen the weak. Accordingly, dreaming of being a patient or a doctor praying over you is a sign of healing. Potentially, the dream could also symbolize God’s desire to heal you from the spirit of infirmity and physical ailments.’ Either way, this type of dream is good news because your life is changing for the better!

“He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their injuries.” (Psalm 147:3)

Receiving Medicine From A Doctor

If you are receiving medicine from a doctor it indicates happiness, positivity, and spiritual strength. Perhaps, God wants to give you joy to remain positive on your journey. Ultimately, as believers we have access to abundant life that defeats depression and every emotion that brings death.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

Dreaming of A Bad Doctor

In contrast, a doctor within your dream that is incapable of handling a patient represents going to the wrong source for your healing. In the book of Job, he compares his friend to incompetent physicians unable to properly apply the word of God to remedy situations. Therefore, consider, who are you getting advice from? And Is it biblically accurate?

References: (Job 13:4,5:18; Ezekiel 34:16; Jeremiah 30:17; Acts 8:7; Luke 13:11; Exodus 15:26)

Eye Doctor Dream Meaning

Dreaming of an eye doctor indicates healing of your sight. The doctor will symbolically heal you, so that you can see the world, yourself, others, and God clearly. For instance, many people are stuck in pride because they can’t see what they’re doing wrong. An eye doctor indicates that scales are falling and fresh eyes to see are being given.

  • The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.” (Matthew 6:22-23)
  • To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.” (Acts 26:18)

Dream of Doctor Giving Bad News

Dreaming of a doctor giving bad news is based on your own inner fear. Perhaps, you feel that your mind, soul, and behaviors are unhealthy. If you do, then your dream may be indicating guilt, shame, and a fear of being sinful or broken. In addition, your dream may be showing your actual fears for your physical health.

  1. I had a dream of being at the door of a place and being invited by a voice to come to the hospital. I didn’t see myself inside the place or hospital but saw next thing, my Uncle, a Muslim Doctor and radiographer, comes to take me from that door and wrapping his arm around me and we were walking away.

    1. Hello Adenike,

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your dream with me. It sounds like the voice calling you to the Hospital is God for greater healing. However, someone that is not following Christ (perhaps your uncle) is trying to take you to a different place. Only the blood of Jesus can truly heal us and every other theology will leave us sick.


  2. I dreamed an I saw a doctor I know, standing on altar and praying for many people which I was among them,am standing in the front of the alter,she called me by my name and prayed for me,and I saw people dropping money on the altar and I did some too, please what is the meaning.

    1. Hello Promise,

      Thanks for sharing! This dream can mean different things based on the emotions you were feeling. If you felt an overwhelming positivity then it could mean you see that this is a true minister of God and you want to give your all at the alter. Or, it could mean that you’re going along with what everyone is doing at the alter.


  3. I had a dream of going to the doctor for an ear infection. The doctor was my family doctor who passed away many years ago. We were laying on a bed as he examined my clogged ear. Before he examined me he examined my youngest child who is a full grown man. He gave him a prescription after my son said he had a period ( female menstrual bleeding ).

  4. I dreamt of a doctor all dressed in white, I could not see his face, instructing the nurse what to do on me. I told the nurse that what she is doing is not what my doctor in real life wanted but the nurse said she is following the instructions of the surgeon whom is the overall surgeon boss and they obey his instructions. All other surgeons come under him. I had that dream the night before my surgery.
    What is the meaning?

    1. Hello! The dream may be a result of your fears of the surgery. However, God is the ultimate surgeon orchestrating your surgery. It may be a dream to bring you comfort that God is guiding your doctors. Be blessed!
