Hello, my name is Ty Wilson, I am a Georgia worker's compensation attorney practicing law in the state of Georgia. And our video topic for today is, what if I disagree with the workers' compensation doctor on my injuries and my medical treatment? We have a situation a lot of times where the employees are not happy with the medical care they're receiving from the doctor that has either been selected for them or they have selected through worker's compensation. What is important is that you're comfortable with your medical care.
If you're not happy with your medical care, you're not seeing any improvements and you don't feel like you are being listened to by your doctor. You have options to change doctors. Unfortunately, it's not open-ended. It's not something where you could just change doctors like you change your clothes. So what you want to do is you want to speak with Georgia worker's compensation attorney.
You want to find out what your options are and what your ability to changes is and that will depend a lot on. Is there a valid posting panel of physicians or a list of doctors? Or did you find your doctor in some other way and his workers comp paying for it? Or is your health insurance paying for it? Where are you at in the claim? There's a lot of specifics that kind of pull in the answers for a worker's compensation attorney to provide you your proper legal rights and where you are in your claim.
