Reading the question posted herehere left me with a more general question:

Given the professional title and name: Dr. (First Name)(Last Name), is there some way to differentiate between the holder of a philosophical doctorate and a medical doctor? Wouldn't it be more appropriate for a PhD holder to have the title (First Name)(Last Name), PhD?

5 The question left out D.O.s or Doctors of Osteopathic Physicians who are also fully licensed medical doctors in the U.S. I think that this conversation should include them because they also are doctors.

How can one differentiate between Dr. (PhD) and Dr. (MD or DO)?
