Finding an editable and printable blank template of a doctor’s form:

On the contrary, the family doctor will not provide any additional medical information and will only state that such treatment indeed occurred.

Try to make the reason for hospital discharge slightly embarrassing if you decide to include one because it will prevent someone from double-checking it.  Just don’t make it too off the wall though.  Here are some of the most common health issues to get you started.

Entering the info and contact number of doctor or hospital:
