Titular Turmoil: Names on business cards

by epi on April 22, 2013

Q: What is the proper way to display a doctor’s name on a business card?

A: Titles, including Mr., Ms., Mrs., Miss, and Dr., are not used on business cards, although credentials may follow the name: Katherine Thompson, M.D. An exception is when the person has a name that could be either male or female (Dana, for example), in which case placing Ms. or Mr. in front of the name is useful.
