Your picture doesn't show a scatter chart. I think it is a line chart.

In a scatter chart, both axes are measures, i.e. numeric, and each dot/bubble represents a dimensional value. See http://community.qlik.com/blogs/qlikviewdesignblog/2013/03/18/scatter-chart

Re: in a Scatter chart having one Dimension and that dimension value is not unique

it is indeed Scatter Chart , we have overridden the Y-coordinates with the Input Box having hard coded string literals,

what we were looking is , that in this particular chart, we have kept two Dimensions order wise (  i.e. "Physician Full Name" , Practice Name")  and "Physician Full name" values get repeated across Practice Name and Dim Legend , we wanted is of "Physician Full Name" , but Dim  legend  is showing us of "Practice Name" , Kindly Please advise

What happens if you just switch places between the 1st and 2nd dimension? (Promote the second dim to become the first). Then you will get the correct label - and the graph should keep the number of dots.

on promoting the practice name to first dimension , this is what happens , the Practice name legends still appears and earlier required dots has become a vertical line now.

First, you need to have several Physicians in your data. So I added one more physician.

Then you go to the "Presentation" page in the chart properties. Here you change the Representation to "Only Symbols" and increase the Symbol Size to 8 pt or 10 pt.
