It is likely that your doctor does not believe they can help you medically. The amount of checks does not particularly affect the doctor’s decision. What you did not mention is if the doctor returned you to light duty work?
If your doctor returned you to light duty work and your employer has light duty work available for you within the restriction provided by your doctor, then you could be required to show back up to work. However it is HIGHLY recommended that you first speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney and provide details about your claim so that you can receive specific answers to your specific situation.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
