Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(2)(a), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to remove Dr. Kevin Custis' authorization to treat injured workers in the New York State workers' compensation system effective July 22, 2020.

The Chair's designee's investigation has revealed that Dr. Custis applied to surrender his license to practice medicine in New York State in full satisfaction of the charges against him, that on or about March 18, 2019, in the New York Supreme Court - Kings County Criminal Part, he was convicted of seven felonies.

Dr. Custis is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, and from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a).
