Our expert review of this letter revealed the following:
Issued: October, 2017
Honestly, we really broke out in laughter when we see the MD actually wrote an RX for an emotional support animal. Who would have ever thought? Ha!
When a doctor thinks of actually RX’ing an ESA dog, versus complying with Federal law, time to find help elsewhere.
Well, beside wasting a page from their recommendation pad, and while I am sure the MD is competent at MD’ing, their grasp of the ESA letter writing business is sub par.
- The letter discusses “functional limitations imposed by her disability,” but does not define those limitations.
- The letter does not verify the client’s disability or disability-related need for a dog.
Both are required by HUD guidelines.[gview file=”https://www.esadoggy.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/bad-1.pdf”]
