comment Do we use “Du” or “Sie” to address users in a German operation manual?
But "Kommen sie Frau Meyer, jetzt nehmen wir mal ihre Pillen" is just plain wrong, the medical assistant hopefully does not take Mrs. Meyers pills. Being addressed by "wir" makes me feel that the other person does not take me serious. Of course its just a personal opinion.

There is another alternative: "Es kann auf diese Art gemacht werden". Using "man" too often can sound strange, but I think thats the case for Du and Sie too.
