Addressing Doctors
by: Ms P Etiquette

Hello Christine,

Yes, you may address with both of their names if this is a formal letter. If you are asking how to address the envelope, you may also use both names. Another method is using the plural noun, ie. Drs Walter and Catherine Thomas. ​

​I hope this helps. Thank you for your interesting question.
