Getting a Doctor’s Note

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

Where can I get a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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.
