‘Mr’ or ‘Dr’ Eric Levi?

It doesn’t really matter. He goes by “Eric”. Some of his little patients call him Dr E or Mr E. He’s a medical Doctor who happens to be a Surgeon. The title ‘Mr’ is an old traditional title given to Surgeons as historically, during the Middle Ages, surgeons were not actually doctors. They did not go to medical school and were barbers by trade. In those days the barber-surgeons with their razor blades used to lance boils, amputate legs, draw blood, pull teeth and help out with military trauma. Today you can be assured that Eric has completed medical school and undertook an additional 13 years of training to be a Specialist Surgeon.
