Getting an Online Doctor’s Note in British Columbia

Here are a few commonly asked questions about doctor’s notes or sick notes.

Where can I get an online doctor’s note?

You can get a doctor’s note from any physician who spoke with you regarding your illness. However, it is up to their discretion as to whether a doctor’s note is warranted. Speak with one of Walk In’s team of physicians today if you feel like you need a doctor’s note.

Why do I need an online doctor’s note or sick note?

Sick notes or doctor’s notes are sometimes required by an individual’s school or workplace to verify that they were sick. If you are sick, your absence may be excused on your record. In other cases, you may need a doctor’s note to get credit for the absence as a day of sick leave. Some companies may limit the number of sick days you can take as a component of your medical leave.

What are the requirements for an online doctor’s note?

You should ask your workplace’s human resource department to be sure, but typically a doctor’s note consists of a signed piece of paper that says you were sick, had a doctor’s appointment, or were treated for an illness on a given day. In order to protect your privacy, it does not have to specify the reason or exact medical condition. If multiple days off from work or school are required, the doctor or medical professional may indicate that on your sick note.

Is there a charge for an online doctor’s note?

Yes there is a charge for a doctor’s note. Doctor’s notes are not an insured benefit under MSP. For up to date pricing, please refer to our pricing page for more information.

So happy to have been able to speak with a doctor. It has been difficult to get an appointment anywhere. This was quick & easy!

Awesome experience! Love being able to connect with a doctor online. As a deaf person, the text/chat feature is fantastic. Thanks for a great experience!

Wonderful! Experienced doctor who listened and acted. I wish she was my family doctor.

I am so grateful for Walk In! I have a cold and I couldn’t find a clinic that wasn’t booked up for the next two weeks and didn’t feel I needed to go to urgent care. I could get an appointment with Walk In the next morning and was able to get reassurance and guidance from the doc! Any virus is freaky these days and I appreciate Walk In making it possible to be seen by a doctor.

The doctor called me early which is very appreciated. She was easy to talk to and was very reassuring and helpful. Thank you so much!

Getting an appointment was so easy, I’ve been looking for an option for a while. I’m so happy I’ve found you.

Thanks for having an available appointment for tomorrow! The accessibility of this clinic/service is precisely what is needed in our healthcare system!

The website is extremely easy to follow and use. Such a breath of fresh air. So many sites nowadays are impossible to navigate. Thank you for putting time and effort into your site!

Thank you, that was easy to do even with a fever and feeling really lousy!

Wow! What a great experience video chatting with the doctor. She was kind and patient with me as I explained my concerns. I will be picking up a prescription this afternoon. She also advised me on what to look for if the infection got worse and when to go to see a doctor in person. What a great service you offer and a gap you fill for patients. Thank you ❤️
