Less'n you're on death's door, I'm busy.

Doctors can be encountered in various places within the Capital Wasteland and can restore HP as well as cleanse those with radiation poisoning. Some also offer other services, such as curing addictions, selling chems, or giving special bonuses. When injured, doctors will have different opening dialogues, saying that their patients are hurt. What they say depends on how much HP and the severity of the damage of the limbs are.
