Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 175350-8W

August 19, 2013

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. Samson Adegbite's authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers' compensation system effective August 9, 2013. Dr. Adegbite's last known business address is 11 City Center, Batavia, New York 14020.

The Chair's designee's investigation revealed that the Department of Health, Bureau of Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued BPMC Order # 13-221, wherein, Dr. Adegbite was charged with two Specifications of professional misconduct. The charges relate to practicing the profession of medicine with negligence on more than one occasion and failing to maintain adequate patient records. He was penalized with a license limitation, effective October 15, 2013, wherein he is precluded from all patient contact and any practice of medicine, clinical or otherwise. Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Adegbite may be guilty of misconduct.

Dr. Adegbite is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Adegbite for services rendered prior to August 9, 2013, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Adegbite for services rendered prior to August 9, 2013, 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.
