Dr. Timothy Strait Retires from Chattanooga Neurosurgery & Spine

Written by: Daniel Richardson, Esq.

One of the most important avenues to control the medical costs and overall exposure of your worker’s compensation claims is to utilize the control given to Employers by O.C.G.A. § 34-9-201, which requires that the Employer maintain a valid Panel of Physicians. The statute requires that you list at least six physicians or professional associations or corporations of physicians who are reasonably accessible to the Employee, among other additional requirements. We recommend periodic verification of your Panel providers to be part of your routine, and so we like to inform you about information that may invalidate your Panels.

To that end, we want to let you know that Dr. Timothy Strait of Chattanooga Neurosurgery & Spine will retire effective June 30, 2018. If you have Dr. Strait listed individually on your Panel of Physicians, you may need to review your Panel to make sure it remains valid. If you have any questions about the validity of your Panel of Physicians, please feel free to give me a call or email me with your concerns.
