We have all, unfortunately, had occasions that require a doctor’s excuse for legitimate medical reasons. A physician’s document / note for work is required by employers or school admin to ensure that you were not making a reason/s for your absences. Perhaps you came down with a pesky cold that won’t go away without a visit to your M.D. and the subsequent prescription. No one wants to go to the dentist, but when we must, we often find he maintains the office hours of a part-time dog walker. In these cases, we MUST go to these professionals, pay them for services rendered, and walk away with a doctor’s excuse. To satisfy either our boss or the school administration, this is a necessity. A chunk out of our pay, or a detention will certainly follow if we do not. (Both these consequences may befall you at work, depending on your boss). There is a strong school of thought, to which I subscribe, that feels both employees and students need the occasional “mental health day” in order to remain in sharp focus at school or on the job. For the good of our own well-being and those around us, we may find it necessary to supply an excuse that is, well…. faux.
If you need a realistic excuse, go here for a great place to pick up a convincing-looking doctor’s note.
You can, depending on your Word document savvy, create an emergency doctors excuse of your own. If you choose this path, there are a few suggestions to follow. First, make some kind of letterhead befitting a doctor’s office. Dr. Graham Nedermeir, Orthopaedic Associates, for example. Make your letterhead a different, but conservative color. Use slightly larger type and a slightly different, but again, conservative font. Next, be sure to date this document and write the body of the excuse in as few words as possible, using little (or no) medical terminology. In reality, it’s the receptionist of office manager who usually writes these things. Finally, after “sincerely” at the bottom, do your very best to make the signature look like the signer has Tourette’s Syndrome. If you are satisfied with your finished form, and it actually WORKS for you, save this document to your computer as a template. You never know when a fabulous “beach day” might pop up mid-week. If you’re looking for a great sick note template, there are many options online.

Another route to explore is online doctors note template. Anything can be procured online and doctors excuses are no exception. They are readily available and can be found in abundance.
