Doctor Appointment Letter
A doctor’s appointment letter is written to request an appointment with the physician who may be quite busy. It is best to write into seeking and confirm an appointment than to be turned away if one turns up at the doctor’s office unexpectedly, unless in emergencies. A physician’s appointment letter should be confirmed to ensure the slot is assigned correctly. A Doctor’s Appointment Letter has to abide by strict formal rules of letter writing. It has to be short and precise and must contain all the details, stating what is the problem that one is suffering from is not very vital but a one line overview would still be preferred.
A Doctor’s Appointment Letter has to be short and precise and must contain all the details but stating what is the problem that one is suffering from is not very vital but a one line overview would still be preferred. It should most importantly ask the question clearly that you are looking to be checked up and a suitable time when the doctor can examine the patient. If it is a short notice letter because of urgency in the case, too much of detail isn’t required. One can even skip the required format but then never fail to mention about the importance of the case at hand.

Subject: Appointment Request for Follow-up Consultation
It has been five months since my colostomy operation, and I was made to understand that a check-up after six 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 field at is, six months after my operation. Hence, I would like to make an appointment with you to be scheduled on February 20, 2011, at 10 am if there is a vacant slot in your schedule.
I would appreciate your confirmation of my request for appointment date and time soonest possible. If my preferred meeting time and date are not available, please revert with alternative appointment times.
