Sandy Hancock: British, schmitish. My parents are serious Anglophiles, and their sense of etiquette is very Debrett's ;-)
By the way: it's an oldie, but relevant to the conversation. You know what you call an anaesthetist wearing a tie?
Layth Tameem: I don't think it should be so rigid. I will change how I introduce my self depending on what the situation is (counselling a bereaved relative, trying to get someone to stop smoking) but also on age, first name to the kids, and dr plus surname to older people with a blurring in the middle depending on my initial assessment of their personality. At the end of the day most of it comes down to trust. I'm trying to get the patient to trust me.
It's interesting but now that I'm an anaesthetist I find my self introducing myself with my first name more often! Perhaps I feel that this gains people's trust better. I will have to meditate!
