Do you have to use the doctor that's on their panel? Hello, my name is Ty Wilson. I'm a Georgia Workers’ Compensation Attorney, practicing law in the State of Georgia. And our video question for today is, “Do you have to use orthopedic that's on their list of, what's called, “Posted Panel of Physicians”?.”

Well, the question is, “Is the posted panel of Physicians a legally valid Posted Panel of Physicians?” or is this something that the employer just said, “Go to this doctor”. So there's a lot of questions, probably more questions than can be answered on this video. If there is a legally valid posted panel of Physicians, you are required to use them as far as your medical care. However, there are a lot of questions. Is the orthopedic someone who is an orthopedic for your foot and you have a back injury? Is it an orthopedic for the back and you have a foot injury?  So there are a lot of questions that go into that. 

My recommendation would be, reach out to a Georgia workers compensation attorney. Pick their brain. Get an idea of, you know, “Is this something that is worth pursuing to get the medical care that I need so that I can get back on my feet and get back more importantly to earning the income I was earning before I got hurt on the job?” We hope that this has been helpful and we'll see you on the next video.
