Is it the doctor, or their tech that you lovers of future doctors like?

If I am dying of something mysterious today, I want a puppeteer autodoc to diagnose and fix me (plus boosterspice) but if I am in a battlefield triage unit, send me Hawkeye.

In the case of the Voyager EMH, I'd definitely say the character, though your point is interesting because he is really written as a piece of technology. Yet, as a character he grew the most of anyone on the series (ok, that's not saying much... but stay with me :-)), and he was freaking hilarious and well played by Robert Picardo.

So I guess he's possibly one of the sci-fi doctors who is closest to the "autodoc" you described?
