Dr. exam, then note: A doctor can write a note after doing an in-person exam. Generally, doctors do not write notes such as work-excuse or school-excuse notes, or back-to-work or back-to-school notes, without an exam. That is because a doctor's note is his written, signed, professional opinion, on whether a patient can or cannot do a particular activity. An in-person exam gives confidence to the doctor's opinion.

Ask your doctor: This is the public HT site where volunteer docs, primarily in the US, offer to answer questions about health problems. It does not offer notes, prescriptions or any other form of direct care. If you need a doctors note, see your doctor or call them & get it from them.
