Surgeon's note. We usually write a note that doesn't detail the procedure being done - just the dates of surgery, and the required time off from work.
Hippaa rules. Request your physician to. Compose a letter to your employer requesting medical leave. You do not have to explain why to your employer.
Time off . I do not give any detailed information about my patient's surgery. However, if there is a request to fill out forms, it is never right to ask your surgeon to misrepresent anything. A limited description to try to maintain your privacy, such as "abdominal " surgery instead of "tummy tuck " could be used. Facial work-you're not going to fool anyone afterwards, so be careful ahead of time.
Letter. A nonspecific letter to your employer should suffice.
