This should be in the form of a typed letter on letterhead signed by the physician or an electronically signed electronic medical record printout. The content of the letter will of course vary with the condition being reported on. For example, a report on hypertension should state that the patient's blood pressure is under control. The blood pressure readings should be included. If on diuretic, then current (within 3 months) laboratory reports should also be included. The letter must list all medications and state that there are no side effects from the medications.
