When do i get my ppd rating?
Im in the state of georgia and My work comp doctor placed me at mmi and sent me for a fce+ppd rating exam a few weeks back.The fce exam results left me with alot of permanant restrictions but i still wasnt given a ppd rating.Then I meet with my doctor to discuss the fce results but the issue of a ppd rating was'nt discussed on his part.So i asked him about the rating'he simply said "Have your attorney contact me' if he wants a ppd rating completed because alot of attorneys dont like for me to do a ppd rating on their clients".This is a georgia workers compensation claim' does this sounds right to you'the insurance company also wanted a ppd rating given.Is this normal procedure to get a ppd rating and do i have to be present in order for my doctor to perform a ppd rating or do he simply go by my medical records to get his rating? The doctor feel My injuries are inoperable due to the risks involved'i had a fractured c6 vertabrae'4 bulging discs'severe spinal stenosis with severe spinal cord compression on multiply levels.Along with all these conditions i have a rare congential chronic disease called OPLL Which was aggravated by my industrial injury.Any information would be greatly appreciated...
sounds like the doctor is one that focuses on treatment and not the legal issues like ratings.
if the records are current and contain all the necessary information they can be used for a rating.

you need to start your own thread.
alvin478 is in georgia and the comp laws are totally different from california.
alvin478's issue is not the same as yours.
it confuses those that scan the topics and come here for help when you hijack another post.

you can use the search feature to scan the posts on the board for those that have had a similar question about conferences
and you can repost your question on a new thread
status = update progress resolving disputes and what needs to be done from here
