Subject No. 046-1075

Temporary Suspension of Dr. John Felix Waller

Authorization No. 112971-7B

Date: July 3, 2018

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Dr. John Felix Waller’s authorizations to treat injured workers and to perform independent medical examinations in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective July 2, 2018. Dr. Waller's last known business address is:

333 E 56th Street
New York, New York 10022

The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that, despite being duly served with a Notice to Produce and Interrogatories, Dr. Waller has failed to produce the requested documents or answer the questions therein. As a result of the foregoing, the Chair believes that Dr. Waller may be guilty of misconduct under WCL §13-d(2)(f) for “the refusal to answer upon request . . . [of] any duly authorized officer of the state, any legal question, or produce any relevant book or paper concerning his or her conduct under any authorization granted to him or her under this chapter.”

Dr. Waller is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers and from performing independent medical examinations while his authorizations are temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Waller for services rendered prior to July 2, 2018, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Waller for services rendered prior to July 2, 2018, should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorizations.

This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
