  • From the text of your question, it sounds like you are already seeing a second, new, doctor. being injured on the job, gives both you and your employer, certain rights. you have a right to consult with the physician of your choice. employers want to send injured employees to physicians on their payroll, hoping to save the employer money with a questionable diagnosis. been there, done that. you have a right to a second opinion, but you may have to pay for it yourself, unless your employer agrees to foot the bill. don't give up. it will take time. i fell at work. broke my neck and shoulder. after two years, of wearing a neck brace, my second opinion doctor, told me of my broken neck and shoulder. he scheduled my surgery asap. my employer had to pay the bill. If you are 100% correct in your injury, be patient. some employers stall injured employees for the sake of money. make your move and force their hand. don't let them make you wait two years.
  • Don't give up. Hopefully you have a good relationship with your W/C carrier. See if you can see another dr out of the network area.They aren't bound to do this but in some rare cases it happens. good luck

  • It varies by state, but you are allowed to change PTPs after 30 days.. If you are rep'd, I would ask your attorney about a 9785 - secondary physician, too, just in case I am misunderstanding your question.
  • i think you have a right to that
