    Letter Writing Question

    Hello, I need to address a letter to someone with a Ph.D. at the end of their name. Do I address it to Dr. John Doe?
    Thank you for your help.

    You could, but John Doe, PhD would probably be better.

    The best thing to to is type in the inside address as:
    John Doe, PhD.
    123 Sesame Street
    Boston MA 02134

    And the salutation as:

    Dear Dr. Doe:
