    Traditionally, you don't use honorifics (Mr., Mrs., Dr.) in signatures. If you have a specific degree that you want to include (to let the recipient know that you're a doctor, or attorney, or whatever) you'd include the proper designation after the name. For example:

    Sincerely yours,

    John Smith, M.D.



    Sincerely yours,

    John Smith, PhD



    Sincerely yours,

    John Smith, Esq.
