If you require further medical treatment you will be scheduled for a return visit to your treating occupational medicine physician. As appropriate, you may be referred to therapy or a specialist in order to improve your condition.
The physician will complete a injury status report and notify all parties regarding the diagnosis and that continued treatment is recommended. Copies of the injury status report are distributed to the employee (patient), your employer.
Once you have reached the “maximum medical improvement” (MMI) the physician completes a discharge summary. Copies are distributed to the employee (patient), your employer.
