Dingbatt: Perhaps we could take a leaf from Doctor Quinn Medicine Woman when referring to physicians? Although that then runs the risk of being too gender specific, so maybe appending "Medical Professional", but then you run into the problem of being confused with politicians when abbreviated.
Maybe people shouldn't wake up in the morning thinking "I wonder what I can be offended by today?". Our worse what they can be offended about on behalf of others.
