Chiropractors who have duly qualified and registered are entitled to the title "Dr" - there qualification however must be clearly indicated - i.e. "chiropractor" or "chiropractic practitioner"
Prescriptions for the higher scheduled medications should be given by your "Medical Practioner" - Chiropractors as Dentists etc are limited to their field of practice.
