I like to add that VOY, often considered to be too bright and optimistic, compared to DS9 and given that the ship is all alone out there, did not shy away from portraying a crew which treated a sentient hologram badly.
Even if they did now know that the guy is more than just some algorithms I find it pretty hard to imagine not treating somebody who looks human like he is human.

Concerning DS9, I think Picardo was a guy who played his character into the foreground (kinda changing his initial character setup analogous to how Shatner changed the setup of Kirk) whereas DS9 featured consistently good character writing from the very beginning. Of course I do not wanna imply that the Doctor had bad lines or that the DS9 actors could not play.
