Doctors are very busy people and do not have time to write letters in response to queries from therapists. It is therefore a good idea to compose a standard letter that explains the facts clearly and merely requires the doctor's signature. An example (for a female client) is provided on page 126. Doctors will not discuss a patient's medical condition with anyone other than the patient and they may not be prepared to sign such a letter. The client must then be advised to consult the doctor regarding the recommended treatment.
