Subject No. 046-1264

Temporary Suspension of Dr. Svetlana Trounina

Authorization No. 241242-7W

Date: February 7, 2020

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. Svetlana Trounina’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective February 6, 2020. Dr. Trounina's last known business address is:

ST Finger Lakes Medical
2211 Lyell Avenue, Suite 106
Rochester, New York 14606

The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued Interim Order of Conditions # 20-014, wherein Dr. Trounina is precluded from practicing medicine in New York State or any setting or jurisdiction where her practice is predicated upon her New York medical license, pending the determination of the Hearing Committee regarding matters under investigation.

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

Dr. Trounina is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, or to conduct reviews of records regarding variance requests, pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a), while her authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Trounina for services rendered prior to February 6, 2020 are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Trounina for services rendered prior to February 6, 2020 should not be denied due to the suspension of her authorization.

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.
