Nintex Workflow Cloud Form: How to except a comma within a choice field options?

I have a Choice field on my form, and the choices are supposed to be (Last Name followed by Comma and Credential). Example: Choice 1: George, MD,  Choice 2: Mary, PhD, Choice 3: Clark, PharmD,

 

These Options are comma-separated, so if I put commas after each choice options, my choices come out as the following on Nintex form:

George,

MD,

Mary,

PhD,

Clark,

PharmD.

 

What I wanted to accomplish:

George, MD,

Mary, PhD,

Clark, PharmD

 

 

What I wanted to accomplish is "except the comma within my choice options. 

Disclaimer: I am not a developer. I have seen similar questions on web forums, but NO ONE seems to give direct answers.

Hi,

No alternatives work as the control detects the choices sepereted by comma, better use a different character does looks good, like ";" or any other character.

George; MD,

Mary; PhD,

Clark; PharmD

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, this will not work for some of the users. I got to watch out for grammar fox.

@AfricanaTech Could you use the ; or another character and then change it back in the workflow later after the user completes the form.

@AfricanaTech 

another option would be to switch to a data lookup control.

Store the possible values connected via a data source (eg SharePoint list)

Then use the data lookup control as an alternate drop down control.
