Jesus is the divine plan, not a human doctor. Jesus bore our sickness upon himself as stripes (Isaiah 53:5 and with his stripes we were healed).
Note the usage of bear in Exodus 28:38 - Aaron bore the inquities upon his forehead.

I do not know how adding metaphor to metaphor helps us understand the text. Jesus did not "bear" sickness of any kind, even if he (supposedly) healed any sickness. There is a difference between bearing a sickness, which means that you suffer through it, and healing a sickness. Doctors do not "bear" the sickness of their patients.
