Date: April 14, 2014
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised his authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Timothy Page’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective April 14, 2014. Dr. Page's last known business address is 2209 Genesee Street, Utica, New York, 13501.
The Chair’s designee’s investigation revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued BMPC Order # 13-425, effective December 26, 2013, wherein, Dr. Page did not contest the charge of having been convicted in the Trenton Town Court, Oneida County, New York of driving while intoxicated. He was penalized with a censure and reprimand as well as probation for sixty months. During that probation period, he may only practice medicine when his practice is being supervised by an on-site licensed physician and when he is being monitored by qualified health care professionals.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Page may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Page is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Page for services rendered prior to April 14, 2014, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Page for services rendered prior to April 14, 2014 should not be denied due to the suspension of his 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.
