Registration Problem with father name in Diploma

I have registered as a student with ECFMG for CS exam now I want to apply for step 1 exam and I need to submit my diploma as I am a graduate.
Problem with my diploma is that in diploma initial Dr. is typed with my father name as my father is a dr. and on my passport and ID card my father name is without initial Dr. what should I do now? Should I apply with the same diploma? will it make any difference?

Although it's really strange to have Dr. title mentioned before a father's name in a Diploma, I don't think that's going to be an issue.

ECFMG specifically mentioned that they tolerate variations in prefixes and suffixes and middle names.
