If I Am Injured On The Job Can I Choose The Doctor Who Treats Me?

For the first ten days, your employer has the right to select a health care provider to treat your injury. After the first ten days of treatment you may choose a different health care provider. You do this by telling your employer that you wish to have a different person treat your injury. If you are treating with a health care provider of your own choice, your employer can require you to see a different doctor for another opinion.
