As mentioned above, you are entitled to be treated by a physician of your own selection. It is important that you stick with a physician that will handle your case appropriately and not be at the whim of the Employer/Carrier. DO NOT sign any forms which waive your right to or designate a physician as your choice of physician. Occasionally, these forms are given to you by a port doctor at the time of a drug test. Read any forms that the Employer/Carrier or physician gives you to sign. If you have a doubt, do not sign it and consult an attorney.
