"Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes has fake doctors in her life, but now she's about to get close to real lawyers ... because she's being sued for allegedly ripping off a struggling writer.

Debra Feldman claims in her lawsuit ... Rhimes got hold of her manuscript, "The Red Tattoo," and used it as a template for her doomed series, "Off the Map" -- about U.S. doctors working in a remote South American village.

Feldman says no one on Rhimes team knew squat about medical treatment on a  third-world island, so she must have lifted it from "The Red Tattoo."

Shonda's rep tells TMZ, “It is our policy not to comment on frivolous claims”

Scandalous.
