    You should make your PT appts before, during lunch, or after normal work hours...your ER is not responsible for paying wages to treat your injury. Sorry... but that's just the way it is.

    Why does everyone think that it is possible to make appointments after work. Doctors and PT hours are usually during work hours, especially if you have a work day that starts at 7:30 AM to 5PM and you work some distance from where the services are provided.

    You just have to make the appointments and give your employer plenty of notice. They can not prevent you from seeing your doctor

    No one is preventing treatment; but you are not going to be paid when you're away from work.
