The Importance of Working with an Experienced Work Comp Doctor
Though you will likely be required to submit to an examination by a company-selected doctor, you ultimately have the right to choose your treating physician. Your doctor should be an advocate for you, helping you get all the benefits to which you are entitled. Your doctor will help determine:
- How to diagnose and treat your injuries, including the specific types of medical care you should receive
- Whether you need treatment by a specialist. Typically, it’s your treating doctor who will make the referral to a surgeon or other specialist
- If, and when, you can go back to work—Your treating doctor will determine when you’ve recovered enough to start working again, and whether you’ll have any work limitations or restrictions
- The extent to which your disability is temporary or permanent, partial or total—Once you have reached maximum medical improvement, your treating physician will assess whether you have any permanent disability
