Subject Number 046-1633 Temporary Suspension of Dr. Sheler Sadati

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 250130-2W

October 27, 2023

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. Sheler Sadati's authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers' compensation system effective August 14, 2023. Dr. Sadati's last known business address is:

375 Mt. Hope Avenue
Rochester, New York 14620

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 a Statement of Charges (allegations only, pending the outcome of an administrative hearing), wherein Dr. Sadati is charged with committing professional misconduct as defined in New York State Education Law §6530(8).

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

Dr. Sadati 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), while her authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Sadati for services rendered prior to August 14, 2023, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Sadati for services rendered prior to August 14, 2023, 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.
