Make sure to read “I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV” part Un and part Deux to find out where this poll comes from.

Without a doubt at some time in your life as a Physician Assistant you will be called “doctor.” This is a regular occurrence at my clinic. I wanted to get an idea of how you handle this situation when it happens.

What do you do when a patient calls you “doctor?”

    Since I only have 7,000 words a day to speak I don’t correct my patients every time they tell me “Thanks Doctor_____!”. That’s why I had it embroidered on my labcoat twice!

      By my math, if you only have 7000 words a day and you corrected each patient that calls you “doctor.” You would be left with about 2316 words for everything else. Probably best that your name and title are on the coat.
