Example: A medical office that has more than one doctor or practitioner. I have seen this on multiple occasions where each doctor is using the exact same address.

How would you avoid duplicate listings? What best practices would you recommend?

My thought is to ensure the NAP is unique.
Practioner #1:
Business Name: Dr. John Smith
Address: 555 Doctor Ave. Ste 500-A, Chicago, IL, 60001
Phone: 666-666-6666

Practioner #2:
Business Name: Dr. Anne Johnson
Address: 555 Doctor Ave. Ste 500-B, Chicago, IL, 60001
Phone: 777-777-7777
Hi Sean, 
Google doesn't pay attention to suite numbers. Have no fear that these listings will be considered duplicates if each doctor has their own name and phone number. You'll be fine.
Will "not" be considered duplicates?
Sean R "Have no fear that they will", to paraphrase, was what he said.

IOW, they won't be considered duplicates if the name and phone number are unique for each professional or business listing in a multi-tenant suite.
