Dear [Ms./Mr. Last name],
I am writing to request Dr. [Name] to issue a medical leave recommendation letter in my favor and have it sent to my employer, [Company], [Address].
As the records will show, I consulted Dr. [Last name] over three days last week for a spinal disc herniation and was also advised at least two weeks of complete rest.
I consulted Dr. [Last name] following my dissatisfaction with an earlier prognosis and treatment, which only worsened my condition. In fact, I successfully sued the previous doctor and his employer for medical incompetence and malpractice and was awarded $489,483 as compensation by the court.
As I have applied for a two-week leave of absence from work, my employment contract requires I furnish a letter from a board-certified practicing doctor recommending leave in support of my application.
The recommendation letter must briefly describe spinal disc herniation . . . provide dates of consultation . . . and briefly describe prognosis and suggested treatment, including advise regarding any limitations on physical mobility.
Please include details about my case, including case number, admission details and the like.
The recommendation letter must appear on the doctor's personal letterhead or that of the hospital.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
