What are the characteristics of a fake doctor's note?

I had an employee turn in numerous doctors notes. Now I'm starting to wonder if they are fake or not. They don't have a phone number to contact the doctor or an address, for some reason I thought at least an address would be present.

I would make a contract/agreement for all your employees to sign stating they must also provide the name and contact information of the physician/doctor. Just the idea that they have to provide the information will make them unwilling to forge any future notes if this is the case. In your defense you can state that the contact information is for emergency use only.

Look up the doctor in the phone book or online.

I have known people that make their own doctors note pad with a fake doctors name.bits very easy to do in Word.
When my kids have had to get doctors notes they always have the address

That's just it the doctor's name isn't on it, it just says the name of the hospital.

A legit doctor's prescription should have the doctor's office address and phone number, but some doctors use a separate pad for school/work notes. Ask the employee to provide you with the phone number and address to validate the notes.
