Unfortunately work comp in California has become a nightmare for patients and physicians. No longer are physicians allowed to make decisions regarding work comp care. These decisions are made by physicians in other states who have not reviewed the radiologic studies, have not examined or spoken with the patients. They follow work comp treatment guidelines from a work comp publication. I have battled for work comp patients, occasionally for two years. They have had to get a work comp attorney, go through court proceedings, depositions, time, time and more time. It's frustrating for everyone involved. This is the main reason many physicians have given up on doing work comp.
