I call mine by his first name unless of couse I am being rude or attempting to demean him in some way. Since he said from day one, "You can call me Bubba," if he says something I don't like or I find particularly hurtful (due to my own problems, not that he's doing anything wrong) then I try to use it as a vice to show him that "I'm not your friend, you are just a paid doctor to me!" Also, when I leave a message on voice mail I tend to use Dr. Such and Such because the voice mail message says Dr., but only if the message is to reschedule, not if it is of importance or emotional. Come to think of it, now that I reread that post, I'm pretty spiteful! :) Oh well, just another quirk I suppose!!!
