I am supposed to see a designated doctor for an examination. Do I have to go?

Yes, you are required to make an appointment with the designated physician. This doctor is to make recommendations about your medical condition and/or help to resolve a work injury dispute.
There are a number of things the designated doctor will do:

• Assign you an impairment rating should you have reached the point where you have improved as much as medically possible
• If you have not reached your maximum improvement, you are not assigned a rating
• Test and evaluate all body parts affected by your workplace injury or illness
• Review all other medical reports submitted by other doctors who may have treated you
• Turns in an evaluation, documentation and a narrative on any impairment rating assigned
