ESA Letter Review: What Major Life Activity?

ESA Letter Review: The MD’s Grasp is Tenuous at Best.

Our expert review of this letter revealed the following:

Issued: October, 2017
Grade: F

Review:

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.

Reasons:

  1. The letter discusses “functional limitations imposed by her disability,” but does not define those limitations.
  2. The letter does not verify the client’s disability or disability-related need for a dog.

Both are required by HUD guidelines.
