Certificate How long should the LoR be?


I asked my preceptor to write a LOR for me, and the preceptor told me to write it up and she would sign it for me. So I have written one up, but it's only half a page long (about four paragraphs). So my question is: is that too short. Or should i make it a full page length?
Any advice would be helpful.

Thank you

Full one page is recommended.
