Do You Address Religious Leaders By Their Honorary Titles in Clinic?

For example, Father, Sister, Reverend Mother, Rabbi, etc.

I saw a Buddhist Monasteryspiritual leader who requested to be addressed as "His Holy Teacher." This seemed a little over the top to me...
That’s pretty long.

I will generally do military ranks if requested and a shorter pastor/father/doctor title if requested. I resort to mr/mrs otherwise. I will generally avoid first names unless they are adamant.

with a “most holy teacher?” I’d probably just resort to a lot of “you”. At some point requests get out of hand.

Yes- we are Catholic and I certainly do so. It is a sign of respect. If they prefer something else, they will generally say so.

If a patient wanted to be addressed as "His Holy Teacher", I would do so. If someone asked me to address them with a title that was profane or disrespectful, I would not do so.

Some physicians prefer to be called "doctor" when they are patients. I, as a patient, will respond to anything and don't care.
