"letter of reference/recommendation"

I know what is "letter of recommendation"
But I am not sure about "letter of reference"

I was told they both are equal

But I have the feeling that they are not excatly the same.

What do you say ?

and "letter of reference" can be as a letter from a doctor that sends you to another doc or place ???
Thanks.
