Normally, when people write any of the variations you wrote above, they don't mean that the doctor is making the visit, they mane that they are making a visit to the doctor. In that case, I believe it would actually be "doctor visits," since doctor in this case is an adjective.

What if it is my "doctor's visit" or my "doctors' visits"?  Not in the context of the "doctor" visiting, but me going to a doctor's visit?
