Is a Supervisor Allowed to Attend Your Doctor Visit?

North Carolina railroad worker injury attorneys Rick Shapiro and Randy Appleton discuss whether a supervisor is allowed to attend an injured railroad worker's doctor visit. The answer is that your employer has no affirmative right to attend your visit. You have a confidential relationship with your doctor and no third party has a right to attend your medical visits if you do not want them there. The only way a third party can attend a doctor visit is if you waive that confidentiality. Before even considering this decision, speak to an experienced railroad worker injury attorney.
