    google

    Is this sentence OK?

    I googled the name of Dr. Xiang but the searches were negative. I am wondering if you have the address of Dr. Xiang and if you have, can you send it to me.

    There are two sentences. They are both OK independently but if taken together it would be better to avoid repetition of "Dr Xiang" by writing "if you have "his" or "her" address,"

    Re: google

    There should be a question mark after "can you send it to me". I still capitalise Google but I understand that it is rapidly becoming a standard verb.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
