Making referrals

Find out if you can refer an injured worker you're conducting an impartial exam on to a specialist.

Examining and treating

You make your examination and formulate opinions from the medical records the Department provides you. You may neither refer nor treat the worker after your examination is completed. A treating physician may be exposed to liability an Impartial Physician does not have. 

It is appropriate, and sometimes necessary, for an Impartial Physician to state treatment options. Such a statement can help resolve the medical dispute in the litigation.
