Wow, where did you find those doctors and staffs?  I've noticed (and been
irritated) for a long time that doctors' and dentists' offices are the
worst offenders.  "Peter, Dr. Smith will see you now" is the norm at any
doctor's or dentist's office I've been in for years.  It seems to be a new
way they've come up with to be condescending.
