Medical professionals deserve more respect

Something is sadly amiss when our brighter young men and women spend extra time and money to attain advanced degrees as nurse practitioners or physician assistants only to live their professional lives being referred to by their first names along with the aides and mop jockeys. The British have various titles in both their legal and medical fields; surely we can do as well. Perhaps the surnames preceded by the designated initials?
