    Confirm?

    Receptionist left a message on my answering machine as follows:

    "The doctor can see you on Jan X, 20XX or on Jan Y, 20XX. Please confirm which day you would like to make your appointment. Thank you."

    Thereafter, I returned the call and was prompted to leave a message:

    "Hello, I am calling to confirm that Jan X, 20XX will work for me."

    I would like to know whether or not I used the word 'confirm' correctly in my response. Also, is there a better way of wording my response?

    Thanks in advance!

    Absolutely fine, that.

    You could also have said.........

    "...............to confirm that ............ is fine for me."
