In order to provide legal and valid proof, you need a medical certificate. Situations such as absence from employment or reimbursements for tickets to an event because of health issues require a medical certificate.
In Doctoyou we want to make sure you have all the necessary information about the importance of medical certificates and how to obtain one when necessary.
Obtaining a Medical Certificate
It is very important that you are aware of what you need before issuing a medical certificate.
First of all, be honest and not misleading. Practitioners may only sign medical certificates they believe, to be completely accurate. Also, many doctors require a consultation before providing a medical certificate to certify they are signing off on the correct information. This includes the observations of the practitioner itself and the information provided by the patient. Any medical statements in the certificate must be possibly demonstrated by facts.
Medical practitioners can decline to issue a certificate if they think it is not true or accurate. Also, this may occur if they do not consider that absence from work is necessary considering your health condition. In conclusion, the practitioner must be confident about the facts of the matter.
