The good news is, YOU HAVE A CHOICE on where and with whom you want to be treated. The right doctor will probably be a board certified physician that understands the types of injuries that happen at work and what the best treatments would be.
Employees injured on the job need to ensure that their workers compensation doctor is board certified and licensed to practice medicine. Be aware however that a medical license is not the same as being board certified.
A medical license allows a physician to diagnose and treat patients; however it is not specialty specific. Board Certification demonstrates a physician’s exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or sub-specialty of medical practice. www.abms.org/board-certification
General Practice Vs. Specialist
It’s of course our expectation is to assume that all doctors went to medical school and are licensed to practice medicine. After all they posses the MD./ DO on their office door. Board certified doctors must complete a residency, i.e. training in the medical specialty of their choice. (e.g. internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and family practice, etc.). Once training is complete the physician is then “board certified” in the specialty.
