People are not folk thus time around? Now they are mennesker?

So is there a difference between "doktoren" and "lægen" ?

'Læge' is purely a medical doctor, whereas 'doktor' can also be someone with a PhD in whatever. Saying 'doktor' about a medical physician sounds like something a child would say. (native speaker)
