    Re: Calling oneself Dr.... but hasnt even begun the fight.

    I just wrote this letter to ERNEST HOLBROOK, asking him his opinion on this matter which perturbs me somewhat. Believe me ive been a physician x 30 years and I dont need lecturing from anyone about etiquette. Just give this 10 seconds of your time but think about it.
    The bottom line is whats in a name, i get it. for me when it comes to
    the WAR/Battle i went through at UCE in SPM in 1976 calling myself Dr. is a big deal and should be used by those who have earned it.



    i think it is rude, so very premature, cocky, insulting and plain stupid to use the name Dr. as a name in these Forums if you indeed are not AN MD.


    You see the majority of the forum members dont use Dr UNTIL they bust their backs
    like i did you did like we all did to deserve that TITLE.

    i just take serious offense with it
    its my problem
    i tried once to settle it
    and all i got was blamed for making believe I WAS an MD.

    Dont you people studying arduously down there feel offended in the least?
    You are all indeed ( except those graduates ) working very hard in a less than optimal environment to get that title.

    I wouldnt dare refer to myself as DOCTOR until that diploma en medicina
    was in my hands.

    I dont know about you guys and gals but i fought a war down there.
    My closest friend said UCE was worse than being in VIETNAM. 1976

    there should be some etiquette and respect paid to those who have made it or striving hard to make it.
    Stop calling yourselves Doctors if youre not one.

    This whole VALUE MD is about qualifying and getting to that stage where you get that right. Not when youre in HIGH SCHOOL asking for advice!!!!!!

    ill go have another GUINNESS.......


    hope you are all well. LIFE IS A JOKE. UCE was a joke but i laughed
    the hardest when i graduated.

    good luck to you all
    god bless you all



    glenn losack yes with an MD..............

    i am used to being called doc by 200 infantry soldiers and Doctor by many Iraqi nationals that it became second nature to me
    though i haven't yet earned the right to be call DR. i do believe that i earned the right to be called "DOC"
    24 months in iraq and you hear someone scream DOC how many of you physicians would run "towards" the bullets and explosions

    but once again i do apologize for the disrespect
    does anyone know how i can change my user name without starting a new account
    i really don't think you need to...DR can obviously stand for Dominican Republic and in you case that seems to be so...its not like you have Dr....

    IMHO the Dr (or DR) isn't as annoying as the xxxxMD as a forum name...that is a lot of presumption.

    keep the DR combat medic...and thank you for your service DOC...

    I totaly AGREE! Why presume something before even obtaning it?
    is it some sort of mental motivation?... everyhead is a world...
    It shouldn't be like that...but nobody says: It can't be like that...

    God Bless!
