NOT a medical suffix, but rather a business suffix. Pretty shady, in my opinion.
I ran across this issue whilst doing a comprehensive on Homeopathy and such as regards the legal battles that have gone in in the UK over the past decade or so. (Fun Topic!) Apparently a “doctor” Joseph Obi has succeeded in trademarking the title of “DR(AM)” and is now offering it to ‘alternative’ caregivers…. for a price (of course). Googling around, there is very little info on J. Obi that he himself did not put on the web. And then I ran across a wonderful blogpost on “Respectful Insolence”
here. That of course links back to all sorts of fun facts!
Has anyone else seen someone using “DR(AM)” in a business/medical setting, or have even those peddlers of the worst woo seen through it for the scam it is?
