Portuguese to English facultativo

Dictionary entry: facultativo

I believe that, just like in the Spanish translation, the most common translation in English of this Portuguese word is “optional” and then “facultative” if we want to go up the register. I just don’t see doctor, physician or anything immediately related to them as an adjective.
Now, as a noun Portuguese from Portugal may use it to refer to a doctor or physician but in Brazilian Portuguese I never heard it.
Thank you for looking into this.
