Calling Dr. Love is a song by Kiss.

Gene Simmons: "The genesis of the song 'Calling Dr. Love' originally came from 'Bad Bad Lovin' which hadn't made it into the KISS recording repertoire. Nobody seemed to like it well enough. So I kept refining it. Then one day I was watching The Three Stooges and something jumped out at me. It was a passage where the Three Stooges had snuck into a hospital, donned surgical equipment and made believe they were doctors and kept running back and forth from room to room with a public address system saying "Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard". And then I thought of rewriting the chorus idea into 'Calling Dr. Love' who has a peculiar way of injecting his patients. By the time KISS had started earning gold and platinum records and filling every arena around the world, Paul and I naturally started kidding each other about our individual writing styles and song titles, both of us taking a turn at each other." (thanks, Ken - LaSalle, Canada)
