    Default Why is this sentence incorrect?

    Can you explain, please, why this sentence is incorrect: "Please, ask the doctor for my test results if you see her." At least in the answers it's marked as a sentence with a mistake. Thank you.

    I wouldn't have used a comma after Please but apart from that nothing.
    Was this in answer to a particular question or part of a longer paragraph?

    There was just a sentence. The grammar topic is conditional sentences. I feel that the style can be inappropriate but can't explain what exactly is wrong.

    That's because it's not wrong.

    Sorry, your response was helpful, and I didn't notice it was your first post.

    In my opinion, the comma isn't necessary but it's not incorrect. I can't find anything else wrong.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
