Mike Moses at Thicker Than Water NYC A plague doctor was a special medical physician who saw those who had the bubonic plague. They were not normally professionally trained experienced physicians or surgeons. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic items. The masks were designed to protect them from putrid air, which (according to the miasmatic theory of disease) was seen as the cause of infection.
