Removal of Dr. Tristan Vaun Stonger

Authorization No. 126902-6W

Date: April 15, 2019

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Sections 13-b and 13-d(2)(a), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Tristan Vaun Stonger’s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective April 8, 2019. Dr. Stonger's last known business address is:

8272 S Strawtown Pike
Bunker Hill, Indiana 46914

Investigation has revealed that, effective March 29, 2019, Dr. Stonger agreed to surrender his license to practice medicine in New York State on the grounds that he could not successfully defend against at least one of the allegations contained in the Statement of Charges, dated March 15, 2019, issued by the New York State, Department of Health, Bureau of Professional Medical Conduct.

Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Stonger may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Stonger is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, and from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a). Reports submitted by Dr. Stonger for services rendered prior to April 8, 2019, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Stonger for services rendered prior to April 8, 2019, should not be denied due to the removal of his authorization.

Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
