    If they refer to themselves as Dr and then use a first name they are a chiropractor. Other than in a medical setting no other doctors refer to themselves that way or as a doctor at all.

    Have you encountered any exceptions?

    Veterinarians refer to themselves as doctors. So do ophthalmologists and optometrists.

    In the USA, anyone who has a genuine university degree at the doctoral level (M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., etc.) can legally identify himself as a doctor, for the obvious reason that he IS a doctor! However, in common practice, only people who actually deal with medicine (human medicine, veterinary medicine, ophthalmology or optometry) call themselves doctors.
