MDs - do you insist that nurses / staff / patients refer to your title as Dr. so and so; or do you allow people to address you by your first name?

I allow people to address me by my first name. I feel that it makes everyone feel more comfortable. But I insist on doctor if someone is being a jerk to me LOL.

Not an MD, but I always use the term Dr. To me, it's a sign of respect for all the work they've put in. What do you do, OP?

Most people refer to me as Dr. I have some patients and coworkers who use my first name, but it's not a super common occurrence. Even patients who know my first name just call me Dr. Brian. Rarely just Brian. I think that would feel a little weird in the workplace or at least around patients.

I'm a physician assistant, but I really don't like when people refer to my SP by his first name. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think you can have a great rapport with your patients and staff and still expect the title. I also think it's a bit awkward though, to have to ask people who already call you by your first name to revert to Dr.

People call me by my last name. With or without the Dr.

And keep on saying how hard he works when he clearly wasn’t and already underperformed compared to an intern level.

Accidentally fell asleep on camera during a dept meeting just for a moment. I wasnt feeling well. No one said anything. My boss emailed me right after to shame me for it and asked me to apologize to everyone for being "disruptive".

My boss is often passive aggressive but only with me. She also micro-manages everyone. I suspect she resents that i am the only fully remote employee (I am ill). I apologized to avoid issues.

Am I wrong to think she is over-reacting and singling me out?

How should I deal with this toxic boss? A senior lead likes to reign with terror. She would call people out in meetings and gives really harsh feedback in front of everyone. When people try to defend themselves she keeps going with her criticisms. It’s always her way, or it’s the wrong way. I’m sick of her behaviour and with burnout, I just can’t be bothered to rationalise with her … but at the same time I don’t want her or other people to think I did something wrong . What should I do?
