Why are they not being addressed by their last names, as we do for all physicians? This difference we make by calling male physicians by last name and female physicians by first name I just not acceptable. Other than that content is great, but please… the standard in Medicine is by calling physicians by last name, any these doctors should be addressed that way unless being addressed by first name is their choice.
Hi, Sandra! Thanks for your comment. I totally agree. We actually have these discussions within our Doctors Lounge community and do feel we should be called by our last names. At work I do insist that people call me Dr. last name, but amongst colleagues I prefer that they call me by my first name. In fact, I feel a bit awkward when other physician colleagues call me Dr. Shrestha. On the podcast, Amber and I are colleagues and friends so that is why we have gone with that. Also for titling the episode and for a graphic design perspective it gets kind of long to put in with Dr. Amber Robins and Dr. Archana Shrestha. But I completely see your point and agree whole heartedly! Thanks again! – Archana
