Authorization No. 197993-9W
Date: February 21, 2017
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. Nasim Haiderís authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workersí compensation system effective February 13, 2017. Dr. Haider's last known business address is Corona Medical Care, 111-21 Roosevelt Avenue, Corona, New York 11368.
The Chairís designeeís investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued the following allegations: that Dr. Haider violated the terms of BPMC Order No. 04-285 in that he misrepresented that he was in compliance with the condition that he had not been arrested, charged or convicted in any criminal or civil matter in that he had been arrested on March 8, 2012 on charges of Forcible Touching in violation of Penal Law 130.52 and Sexual Abuse in the 3rd Degree in violation of Penal Law 130.55, and that he knew his statement to OPMC was false and intended to deceive, that he was unable to produce chaperone logs for the period of 2012-2013, that he examined and/or treated nine patients without an approved chaperone present and/or without causing a chaperone to note her presence in the patientsí medical record, that in the treatment of these nine patients he deviated from acceptable medical standards, conduct and practice, knowingly and willfully submitted a medical record to OPMC which he knew was not created on the alleged date, failed to obtain and document adequate, full or focused history, failed to conduct or document adequate, full or focused physical examination, failed to adequately follow-up on and/or treat a patient regarding lab results, failed to adequately follow up and/or treat numerous patient complaints, symptoms and/or physical conditions, failed to maintain adequate medical records, inappropriately prescribed medications, and that he maintained conditions in his medical office which violated scientifically accepted infection control practices.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Haider may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Haider is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Haider for services rendered prior to February 13, 2017 are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Haider for services rendered prior to February 13, 2017, 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 Directorís Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
