Changing doctors

It often takes time for patients to feel comfortable with the doctor they are seeing. If you are dissatisfied with your physician, you have the right to choose another doctor from your employer’s panel of physicians. You can do this once without prior approval from your employer or the insurance company. However, there is no guarantee that you will feel any more comfortable with the second doctor. If this is the case, your workers’ comp attorney can help you choose another physician with the agreement of your employer or the workers’ comp claims adjuster.
