    As a last resort you can hire a workers comp attorney.

    Meantime, you are free to seek proper treatment with doctors of your choice.

    Unless your employer has a managed health care plan that was approved by the WV insurance commissioner, in which case you must choose from physicians in the plan or approved by the plan, you can get your care from any doctor who accepts worker's compensation patients.
