It wouldn't surprise these days, (with doctors) I amputated my left pinky finger half way up and sat in the er for hours and went from test to test. They gave me some test where I had to lay down on a table and do a scan of my whole body. For a finger? I think they needed to make up for budget losses. But yeah I would ask for a doctors slip, make it a directive for new employees.

What I do is tell them I need to see a copy of the Dr's bill instead because Dr's notes are to easy to obtain and even if they have Ins they still get a copy of the invoice.

Funny story, light years ago when I was in High School I dated a Dr's daughter. One day while at his office with her I "convinced" her to give me a pad of his "Dr's Work/school notes" with his named stamped on them. Then sold them out of my locker each day for $5 a piece.. I guess I was bound way back then to be "self-employeed"
