Doctor Referral Letter for Patient with Special Needs
I am Dr. [name] from [department name] writing to you on behalf of my patient [name]. I have been treating Mrs. [name] for the last [number] years. She is [age] years old and has a history of hypertension and DM. she is currently on no medication since BP and blood sugar were controlled without it.
The reason that I am referring to you is that she is experiencing urinary frequency and Nocturia for a month now. The patient had chronic Nocturia for many years but it was limited to 1-2 events a night but now the patient is feeling the need to void every hour or two hours at maximum. There is no incontinence.
Her baseline tests were taken and the results showed that the LFTs and RFTs are normal. CBC showed decreased HB and increased TLC [first 16 then after antibiotics dropped to 10). Urine DR was normal. I am attaching the detailed test results and her previous medical history.
In my professional opinion, you as a urologist would be able to help her better. I have sent her to your PA for the appointment. I would urge you to give her an appointment at the earliest considering her condition and age. If there is anything else you need to ask regarding her medical history or the medication she has been taking, please feel free to contact me on [phone number] or through email at [email address]. I am sure that with your expertise and experience her problem would be resolved in no time.
