Post how can we address the SP..?

guys...

can we address the patient as sir/mam once we finish the first introduction??...i knew that 1st intro should be made by his full name(ex-Mr.jones/Ms.miller)...

i'm asking coz i saw addressing SP as sir/mam in cse videos ...but ppl who took the exam say it's blunder to address them so......

so everytime addressing Mr.jones must be followed or we can call them as sir/mam...?

thank you

yeah....thank you

do you mean i have to ask him whether he want to address him as sir/mam

i was thinking like'" i would ask him how he would address like ? i mean by first name or last name"......if he says by last name ----we should address him always by last name or can we also say sir at times..?..(this was my actual doubt----i knew that we should ask him how can i address him...)

You can address the sp as Mr.Smith ( name- joseph smith ),always address by last name .

Mr for male,Ms or Mrs for female,depend upon her marital status.
