About Department of Labor (DOL) Doctors
Often times injured federal workers will be encouraged by their employing agency to choose a particular doctor to treat their injury and oversee their DOL-OWCP injury claim. But the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) affords every injured federal employee the right to choose their own treating doctor regardless of what their agency says, so long as the doctor is a DOL doctor (in the Department of Labor network). Our patients have chosen us to be their DOL doctor because they know, in doing so, they have chosen a doctor that will put their needs first without any obligation to the employer.

The Cost of a DOL Doctor
There shouldn't be any costs billed to the patient if he or she is seeking medical care for an injury that occurred while working for the federal government. If you have been billed by a doctor for our injury treatment, beware. Your doctor may not know how to properly work within the guidelines of the federal workers compensation program. Our DOL doctors will be available for a continual and open dialogue with you, the injured patient, so that you know what injuries are compensable and which treatments and/or therapies are available to address the compensable injury.
