Introduce myself as nurse practitioner to all my patients and I have never called myself doctor. Yet, people throw the doctor title on my name.
From medication refill requests, medication bottles patients bring in, lab results and imaging reports...they all give my name as Dr "my real name here" MD. My prescriptions and all my documentation clearly states NP.
I've been out of school for a year now and I've noticed this occurs quite frequently. This is not a question, more of a rant.
