"I am professional like you."
An English teacher and his old father visited the emergency section. However, doctors were busy and paid no attention to them. The teacher got angry and said, "I am professional like you." I understood what he meant by that. It means that he and doctors at same level- educated. My question is this, is it the same phrase used by native speakers in such a situation, please?

I don't think we would have a similar situation. Emergency rooms treat patients based on the severity of their condition, not their ranking in society. Saying, essentially, "treat me first cause I am of a higher class than these other people" would not be a strategy to gain favorable treatment here.
