I've never called an MD by his/her first name. But, I just couldn't imagine calling my therapist Dr.... I honestly think if I interviewed a therapist and s/he said, "You can call me Dr. Spock" and wouldn't allow me to call him/her by his/her first name I would not seek treatment with him/her. Some boundaries have to be flexible. Others must not be. This one I think should be depending upon the client.

I'm sorry you had a poor experience with a doctor. That's always bad.
