AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Lee Brilleaux returned with a completely new lineup of Dr. Feelgood for Doctor's Orders, a record that returned the band to its piledriving R&B and rock & roll roots. At this stage, the band sounds more accomplished and professional than ever before -- there's little of the wild energy that distinguished their first records -- but that's actually not a bad thing, because they have enough sensibility to be skilled, not slick. Supported by the new band, Brilleaux manages to turn in the grittiest Dr. Feelgood record in years, making Doctor's Orders a fine comeback from a band that seemed to have lost the plot.
