Using a Fake Doctors Note: How to Avoid the 7 Most Common Mistakes

Update: May 11th, 2015

a doctors note that is fakeOccasionally you may find yourself with any obligation that you simply do not want to attend. This may be something like a school day, a day at work, or simply because you are not prepared for a presentation. You may also simply want to take a day off because you are feeling tired or a little bit sick. Most places will require you to give a note in order to excuse your absence. However, you may not want to pay a lot of money to see a doctor in order to get a simple note. This is especially important if you don’t need to see one, but simply need to rest in bed.  The best ways to do this is by turning in a fake doctors note. A physicians note is a difficult thing to do, and there are seven things that most people fail to do when making up  fake doctors notes.

Use a template

The most common mistake people make is failing to use a template for a physicians note. A template can allow persons to know what a general medical note looks like, and what information they should put on it. It also helps one to format it to look real. Simply having the note look official will go a long ways towards making it look good.

Use a real doctors name

The second mistake persons make is failing to use a real doctors name. If a person wants to know if the note is real they will check to see if the doctor is real. After that they will generally not look into the rest of the matter. It is important to remember that a doctor cannot tell anyone if you are their patient, and so a person cannot know if you actually did lie about visiting them.


Do not put a request to call the doctor on the note

A lot of persons go a little bit too far, and entice persons to call the doctor. However, it is important to remember that a real doctor does not want random school teachers to call them to hear about if someone did in fact have a stomach ache.

Don’t put your condition on the fake doctors notes

It is still important to remember that a doctor cannot tell other people about your health, or anything really about you. This is why it is important to avoid language that tells persons that you had something like a stomach ache or a fever. Simply write on the note that you were visiting the doctor that day.

Write in variable information by hand

It is important to remember that most generic doctors notes are general form that a doctor or receptionist quickly fills out. This is almost always done by hand, and so should you when you are filling out your fake doctors notes. It is even a good idea to do all of the information in one pen color, and then the signature in a second color. This will make it look like a receptionist filled out the date, time, and location information on the form. The second color will look like the doctor simply signed the form while speaking with you.

Have someone else write in the information

Finally, you need to make sure that the fake doctors notes are not in your handwriting. Ask a friend to fill in the information for you. It is also very a good idea to have one person fill in all of the information, and then have a second person sign the form.

By keeping these items in mind, you will be able to avoid the most common mistakes when filling out a doctors note.  If you want to get access to the best fake doctors notes, go to
