Anonymous:
what is PBR after a doctor's name?
Many people have asked this.

Is it part of some kind of test or list of questions? Or is it from a text-book or an article?
Where did you find 'PBR', please?

If it is on a prescription it is short for prescriber, i.e. the doctor who wrote the prescription. Are you referring to on a prescription or a bottle/packet of medication or in some other context?

Hi,
Please provide the additional information to come to a conclusion:
1. Where are you from?
2. Is the doctor a Physician or a Surgeon? What specialty the doctor holds?

By the by, did you meet a psychologist/psychiatrist? Such abbreviation (PBR) is only possible in that specialty.
PBR- It must be either "practice-based research" or "Payment by result".

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Anonymous,

May I know the specialty of the doctor? Did you meet a general physician or specialty physician?

May be "PBR" is a localised abbreviation for Prescriber.

By the by, where are you from, Anonymous? It is very difficult to come to a conclusion without complete details of your origin(country) and the specialty of the doctor because qualifications and abbreviations sometimes are localised and country specific.
