    apostrophe

    Did I put the apostrophe correctly?

    Dr. John (ABC Medical Centre)'s report is on his desk.

    Re: apostrophe

    No. The apostrophe must go directly after the name.

    Dr John's (ABC Medical Centre) report is on his desk.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: apostrophe

    No. I would put the "apostrophe s" after "John".
