Can you say no to a workmen's comp nurse requesting to go with you to the next doctor's visit?
Your doctor's word and reports to WCB should be good enough, and say "NO!" She has a right to contact your doctor on reports and discussions about your case only related to the injury you have and nothing more! I would suggest that you speak with your doctor about this and you can do this over the phone. His office ass't may even know.
You can also go onto www.Workmen's Compensation Board in the State of ________ and get all the information and rules and regulations you want. I suggest you do this before you ruffle this gal's feathers.
Good luck Marcy

As most orphanage's are overwhelmed with request's for a visit they may not answer to an individual requesting a visit. It is recommended that you schedule a visit with an orphanage touring agency as they have a relationship with the orphanage, will handle all of the required paperwork, and bring along a translator to help assist you with any questions that you may have.
It depends on your physician. I am on adderall and my daughter is on Concerta with different doctors. Both doctors use the same method, I need to call in to the doctor and request the refill. I then need to personally pick up the prescription and it must be filled within 7 days. But the doctors dont genarally have an office visit.
