Dr., Drs.

The title Dr. (whether for M.D. or Ph.D.) is generally not used before a full name, but may be used before a last name.

However, preferred editorial style calls for describing a person's credentials when giving the full name on first reference, and then using the last name alone in subsequent mentions.

Plural is Drs.
