Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations
Authorization No. 145141-8W
February 10, 2021
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(2)(a), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Alan B. Kantor’s authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers’ compensation system effective February 8, 2021. Dr. Kantor's last known business address is:
3379 Crompond Road
Yorktown Heights, New York 10598
The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that, by Consent Order BPMC #20-323, effective January 5, 2021, Dr. Kantor could not successfully defend against at least one act of misconduct alleged, including that from in or about Spring 2014 through in or about August 2016, he failed to render and/or note appropriate care and engaged in inappropriate verbal and/or physical conduct with two patients. This resulted in a limitation precluding Dr. Kantor from practicing medicine in the state of New York.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Kantor may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Kantor 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. Kantor for services rendered prior to February 8, 2021, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Kantor for services rendered prior to February 8, 2021, 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.
