Subject No. 046-1238

Removal of Dr. Edwardo Yambo

Authorization No. 131794-0W

Date: December 11, 2019

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Sections 13-d(2)(a) and (5), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Edwardo Yambo’s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective December 11, 2019. Dr. Yambo 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). Dr. Yambo's last known business address is:

60 East Industry Ct.
Deer Park, New York 11729

The removal is based upon Determination and Order BPMC 19-302, wherein the Hearing Committee revoked Dr. Yambo’s license to practice medicine in New York State, based on his conviction of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree in violation of New York Penal Law §155.35(1), a Class D felony. Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Yambo may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Yambo’s name had previously been temporarily removed by the Chair, effective June 3, 2019, for failure to maintain an active license to practice medicine as required by the New York State Education Department (see Subject No. 046-1200). Reports submitted by Dr. Yambo for services rendered prior to June 3, 2019 are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Yambo for services rendered prior to June 3, 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.
