What is a designated doctor?

A designated doctor (DD) is selected by the Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) to resolve questions about an injured employee's medical condition or resolve a dispute about a work-related injury or illness. The injured employee, the employee's representative or insurance carrier, or DWC can request an exam by a designated doctor. DWC will determine if a designated doctor should be appointed to conduct the exam.
