Use of correct pronoun
This was written in a press release: " Walter Duffy MD, president and CEO of Premier Psychiatric Group is pleased to announce the opening of our new office at ...".
This should have said "his new office" correct?
You're right, Rosalie. "Of Premier Psychiatric Group" is a prepositional phrase, and if you eliminate it, you see that "our" replaces "Walter Duffy MD." Also, since press releases are typically written in third-person, "our" should really be replaced with "his."
But since that might read a little strange, since like Lewis said, there will be more than one doctor in the office, a better option is probably:
" . . . is pleased to announce the opening of a new office at . . . "
