A doctor appointment letter is a letter written by a patient and is addressed to the concerned doctor or the hospital. When a patient has to visit a doctor, he has to check the doctor’s availability.
This letter is a formal request to seek a slot of a doctor’s time. Sometimes, the patient has to write this letter to the hospital in which the specific doctor is working and request the hospital for an appointment. If that specific doctor is not available and the patient cannot wait, the hospital suggests a different doctor or a healthcare professional.
In this letter, the patient has to be concise and may include the following:
- Details of the patient such as name and address
- Name of the doctor
- Purpose of the appointment
- Requested date and time of the appointment
- Any previous history with the doctor or any other doctor
- Name of your health insurance plan
- Ask if any medical records are required for the visit
- Any other required information
Doctors are very busy with their hospital schedules and a patient should respect that by making a formal request of seeking an appointment. It saves the patient’s time as well.
This letter can be kept as a record in your medical history with you as well as with the doctor. In addition, this doctor appointment letter can be provided as evidence to the employer and also can be used to seek a medical leave for the appointment day.
