    Default PR-3 Form

    hi guys my neuro released me and stated me mmi/p&s/rateable in his report and released me to my ptp with limitations. My questions are these 1.) are the limitations in his final report just suggestions for my ptp, or are they guidlelines for my ptp to follow? 2.) my ptp is a real idiot but a nice guy and doesn't know what a pr-3 is..he had no idea he would even be the one rating me , he thought the neuro would be doing it....would I be out of line to print one out and take it to him on my next visit? could someone provide me with a link to the most up to date pr-3 form thats printable if so? I really appreciate your help everyone especially sh and bvia.

    thanks!

    If you are treating in the MPN, your PTP knows this is his responsibility. And I think we've already discussed this...
    4061.5. The treating physician primarily responsible for managing
    the care of the injured worker or the physician designated by that
    treating physician shall, in accordance with rules promulgated by the
    administrative director, render opinions on all medical issues
    necessary to determine eligibility for compensation. In the event
    that there is more than one treating physician, a single report shall
    be prepared by the physician primarily responsible for managing the
    injured worker's care that incorporates the findings of the various
    treating physicians.

    The form you want is PR-4 because you will be rated under the 2005 PDRS.
    Primary treating physician forms Number
    Primary treating physician's permanent and stationary report
    2005 permanent disability rating schedule DWC form PR-4

    Primary treating physician's progress report DWC form PR-2
    Treating physician's determination http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/forms.html
    My questions are these 1.) are the limitations in his final report just suggestions for my ptp, or are they guidlelines for my ptp to follow?
    It's he neuro/surgeon final report releasing you from his care. Your PTP is now charged with correlating that into his final report. The PTP restrictions are the ones the claim will follow. YOU should be discussing with your PTP what in your mind you can/can't do in your job duties. The doctors are based on medical evidence as you present.
