Retrato de un médico (Portrait of a Doctor) is an oil painting by El Greco.

Painted in Toledo between 1582 and 1585, and on display at the Museo del Prado,[1] some authors suggest the portrait of the anonymous person may either be that of Luis de Mercado, Felipe II's chamber doctor, or of Rodrigo de la Fuente, a friend of El Greco.[1]
