Authorization No. 148023-5W

November 18, 2022

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. Howard Adelglass' authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective November 17, 2022. Dr. Adelglass' authorization to treat injured workers was previously temporarily suspended, effective January 26, 2021. See Subject Number 046-1367. Dr. Adelglass' last known business addresses are:

200 Central Park South, Suite 212
New York, New York 10019


1221 Jerome Avenue
Bronx, New York 10452

The Chair's designee's investigation has revealed that, on or about November 4, 2022, in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, Dr. Adelglass was found guilty of conspiracy to illegally distribute oxycodone. Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Adelglass is guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Adelglass 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).

Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director's Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
