Certificate Retired US doctor LOR

I came across a retired US general Physician. I worked under him for quite long period of time. If i ask a LOR from him. Will it be valid. If yes, Then which letter head he can use my medical school one or that US medical school one where he used to work before.

Thanks in advance

If he still has access to the letter heads of his medical school where he used to work then it is ok and you can still use it. Even if he is affiliated to your medical school and he wants to give it to you on that letter head it is also ok.
