A doctor’s note also referred to as a sick note, is a medical or doctor’s certificate to attest medical examination of a person. This is a written document by a doctor or health care professional in which s/he states the condition of the patient examined by him/her. This serves as an evidence of the health condition of an individual. In case of an employee, it may serve as a sick note to be provided to the employer stating that the employee is not fit to work.

Due to the credibility of doctors, this note is given significant importance. There are many templates available for doctor notes and sometimes the doctors design their own templates which can be customized for different patients. The doctor’s note may contain information such as:

  • Date
  • Details of the patient
  • Details of the doctor/physician
  • Details of the examination and health condition of the patient
  • Confidential content (only if allowed by the patient)

Usually, fillable doctor notes are used by the doctors. These are pre-designed notes with the general information and the blanks that need to be filled with the patient information. It has the following benefits:
