I have recently had to take 4 days off for a severe case of bronchitis. I saw the Dr on the first day. Was given 4 prescriptions and note to return to work after 4 days. I called HR dept, gave them details, they stated they would need FMLA papers filled out. Had my wife get the papers and drop off to Dr. One week later I check with Dr. and he states that since it was a clinic and he isn't my regular Dr. that he would not fill them out.
I do not have a regular Dr. This is a very small community and most people go to the urgent care clinic. Do I have any recourse to get him to fill this out? I understand they may charge for doing so and that isn't a problem but the fact is he provided the medical care, wrote the prescriptions, and put me off work. I feel it is only fair that he is responsible to fill out these papers.
thanks for any info.
