Subject No. 046-1189

Removal of Dr. Robert Leonard Bull, Jr

Authorization No. 158870-6W

Date: July 29, 2019

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Sections 13-d(2)(a) and 13-d (5), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Robert Leonard Bull, Jr.'s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective July 24, 2019. Dr. Bull's last known business address is:

Lewiston Primary Care Center
4600 Military Road, Suite A
Niagara Falls, New York 14305

Investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued Surrender Order #19-179, wherein Dr. Bull agreed not to contest the allegations in full satisfaction of the charges, including that on or about July 1, 2019, he was convicted of the misdemeanor Attempted Criminal Sexual Act in the Third Degree, in violation of New York Penal Law §110.00/130.40 in Niagara Falls City Court, and pursuant to which Order he must surrender his license as a physician in the State of New York.

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

Dr. Bull 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. Bull for services rendered prior to July 24, 2019, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Bull for services rendered prior to July 24, 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.
