    OMG and does it put husband and brother third if so? That is a rhetorical question.

    Does this marketing campaign include male FPs identified by their first names only in the context of their work? This is not just a rhetorical question, I am trying to understand if my response to patients asking me if they can call me Bridget needs updating.

    (Currently I say that’s great at the grocery store, but at work if you call me Bridget you’ll remind me of the others who do that, usually patients who want to change the doctor patient relationship to one of buddies, thinking it improves care when quite the opposite is true.)
