A doctor’s appointment letter is written to request an appointment with the doctor who may be quite busy. It is best to write in to request and confirm an appointment than to be turned away if one turns up at the doctor’s office unexpectedly, unless in emergencies. A doctor’s appointment letter should be confirmed to ensure the slot is assigned correctly.

RE: Appointment Request for Follow up Consultation
It has been 5 months since my colostomy operation and I was made to understand that a check up after 6 months should be performed after such a major operation, although I feel well and have recuperated.
Nevertheless, I would like to take up the advice of a follow up consultation next month; that is, 6 months after my operation. Hence, I would like to make an appointment with you to be scheduled on February 20, 2011 at 10am if there is a vacant slot in your schedule.
I would appreciate your confirmation on my request of appointment date and time soonest possible. If my preferred appointment time and date is not available, please revert with alternative appointment times.
